I'll have to add superior education and common sense to the list of stuff America has brought to the table, according to you.

Just think. When America was established, it was colonial times. Belt buckle hats, cowboys, wagons, oxen. No electricity at that time.

ur a dumbass electricity was discovered long before america the first use was around 600 b.c which was the use of static electricity

"In 1800, Italian-born physicist Alessandro Volta constructed the voltaic pile, later known as the electric battery, the first device to produce a steady electric current. It was Volta, not Franklin, who discovered that certain chemical reactions could produce electricity. Volta also created the first transmission of electricity by linking positively-charged and negatively-charged connectors and driving an electrical charge, or voltage, through them."

TL;DR Franklin just found the link between lightning and electricity; Alessandro Volta was the one who actually "invented" electricity.

But Franklin's work led to the modern conveniences we have now, as Tesla's battery designs were the ones taken into mass production, not your asshole. Tesla: serbian-american, counts my argument.

So, going by your theory, the actual inventors of electricity are the ancient Egyptians who got shocked by electric eels? Because, you know, if they hadn't then no one would've "invented" electricity. Or the Arabs of the 15th century who did basically the same thing as Franklin 300 years before him. Or even the ancient Greek who discovered static electricity.

Also, my asshole? I'm from South London, I don't even draw parallels from some Italian surrender monkey.

Good job bein' racist there at the end, it totally helps your argument :)
#883 - anonymous (06/30/2012) [-]
My argument's correct, hence why you only picked out the last sentence about me being "racist."
User avatar #884 - demandsgayversion (06/30/2012) [-]
The rest of your argument is that eels invented electricity; your argument defeats it'sself right there.
#885 - anonymous (06/30/2012) [-]
If you read my argument, you would know that it in fact stated Franklin didn't invent electricity.
User avatar #887 - demandsgayversion (06/30/2012) [-]
But you can thank all of this to him. He was an important piece of the puzzle that is modern electricity
#889 - anonymous (06/30/2012) [-]
All of what? Michael Faraday perfected electrolysis; Volta invented the battery. To what extent did knowing that lightning conducts electricity have ANY effect on the aforementioned examples?

And to a greater extent, your beloved (and I agree, brilliant), Nikola Tesla's work was based a lot more on Michael Faraday's (who was English) work, rather than Franklin's.

I don't even know anymore, I give up. I'm not a history expert, nor do I really CARE. I just hate Europeans talking shit about my favorite country.

The difference between your insults and European insults, is that your insults are baseless, hilarious, exaggerated lies (Like saying all Russians drink Vodka 24/7)
Meanwhile, most European insults are actually facts about the average American.

30% of Americans are obese... Most Americans. Right.

If you didn't care, you wouldn't have taken your time to answer everyone here, would you? And not being a knob or anything, but you're an excellent example of why people rip your "favourite country."

No, electricity still fucking existed then. Okay? America invented a lot of modern devices that use electricity. You didn't invent electricity, and humanity has known about it long before America. Okay? Okay.

Excuse me, smartass. Discovered electricity and how to channel it for modern use.

What? Americans discovered electricity??

Electricity as a concept has been present since the greek times (or maybe even before), the root of the word electricity comes from the greek "elektron" which means amber, since it was observed that amber could create electric attraction by rubbing it.

It is commonly mistaken by American that electricity was discovered by Benjamin Franklin. Although he did do great research on electricity, he only proved lightnings were a manifestation of electric potential, he was credited with the use of positive and negative charges (which was already described in the past, only that they didn't have the words "positive" and "negative") for explaining the phenomenon.

Cardano (Italian), Gilbert (English), Guericke (German), Boyle (English), Hawksbee (English), Gray (English), Wheler (English), Francois (French), Pieter (Dutch), von Kleist (German) all did foundational research on the field of electromagnetism. Even the capacitor (part of Franklin's research) was invented before him.

Even in the field of electrical engineering, Faraday (British), Ohm (German), Maxwell (Scottish) are creditted for most of the theory AND the discovery of electromagnetic induction by Faraday (without induction you wouldn't have AC current which accounts for most of the electricity we use).

BTW you mentioned WAVES? There is this german dude called Heinrich Hertz.... Sound familiar? Waves are measured in "Hertz", does that tell you something?

Tesla, although he is American citizen, was born Serbian and educated there. Although the telephone is credited to Americans, radio communications was already done by Popov (Russian), Fleming (English), and code message was developed by Germans.

Although one of the best and most known inventors, Thomas Edisson, was american, the foundational work for him to be able to invent had to be previously done.

So no, Americans did not discover electricity nor how to use.

Ya know, I didn't do any research before posting that. You think I was ready for this onslaught of upset europeans? I stood my ground as best I could. But ya know what? Other than the dumbass at the bottom, I give up! I'm sure there's fifty thousand more reasons America should be respected, but I don't care anymore.

MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON

Arguing without knowing is shouting.

Moon? Americans only reached it (although even that is under debate). And what does moon give you? Nothing until now. No useful resources, only 1000 tons of fuel wasted.
