So let's ignore the fact that if it weren't for the UK, the USA wouldn't exist, or at least you'd be speaking french. And ignore the whole 'we conquered 90% of the world' lark. And talk about the real impacts.
Kicking it off with the benefits to our colonies. The industrial revolution, you're fucking welcome for the industrialisation of the modern world. Or what about the presence of authoritative bodies in countries we have colonised that otherwise would not have existed. Shit you americans can yap onabout muh freedom all you want, the UK is responsible for the fucking Magna Carta! Most concepts of freedom, democracy and rights that exist today can be either directly or indirectly drawn back to this document.
Let's break it up with some science. Ever heard of Edward Jenner? You know the father of Modern vaccines, his research is the reason your ancestors didn't die of smallpox years ago. The UK has the 9th largest amount of Nobel prize winners per 10 million in the world... And even then the countries that beat us have at least 6 times our population. So the UK has 123 compared to the US' 350, your population is over 5 times ours man! And fuck do we know science: Charles Darwin, Isaac Newton, Stephen Hawking, Tim Berners-Lee (The inventor of the WWW, the thing you're bad mouthing us using), Alexander Graham Bell. Shit the list goes on, Faraday, Higgs, Davy and Flemming.
Our inventions? The Telephone, TV, the Jet Engine, Steam Engine, Light bulbs, Hypodermic Needles, Carbon Fibre, Reflecting Telescopes, Modern Torpedos, Cement, Stainless Steel, Photography, Hydraulic Presses, Tin Cans and a shit tonne more.
I could go on talking about the medical procedures developed, our multitude of fucking huge wars whether it be Napoleonic, either of the World Wars or the Cold War (Admittedly half of it). Or the fact that we have and always will be a cultural hub of the world, from Shakespeare to the Beatles and so much more. But no, I'm concluding this butt hurt fecking rant on the largest goddamn contribution we have made, and the largest fucking contradiction you have. The god damn english fucking language bitch.
It's the most widely spoken language in the world, obviously not as their mother tongue as China has that shit on lock. But that further emphasises my point, it contains over half a million words and more that aren't even documented in the dictionary. Three quarters of the worlds mail is in English, fuck English is the medium for 80% of the information stored in the world's computer and the internet. Five of the largest broadcasting companies in the world transmit in English (CBS, NBC, ABC, BBC, CBC). More countries in the U.N use English as their official language than any other. The fact is that we've played one of the largest parts in carving the world we live in today, and will continue to fucking do so.
God save the motherfucking Queen.

Also I don't want to seem like a douche, but of course the UK has lots of shit invented and lots of good stuff. The USA has been around for only a fraction of the time those countries have. I feel like it's unfair to do a direct comparison. It's like that war where the Brits wrecked that one spear-chucker group in a day.

Germans invented the jet engine.... cement? ever hear of fucking rome? jesus christ
#29 - Heavy (05/12/2015) [-]
Yeah I should have been more specific, Frank Whittle designed the Turbojet engine before the german jet engine design.
And there is a tonne of different types of cement, Isaac Charles Johnson developed British cement while Aspdin developed Portland cement. They are different compounds from those used by the romans.

Maybe they don't give a shit what some third world country and it's bums think about America.

(daentraya) Online diagnoses should be treated with great care. I am not fond of this practice myself, and I havent read enough of his stories. However, his massively social awkwardness and obliviousness and what seems to be peculiar and heavy interests, pretty much lands the ball in some severe area of autism, as anyone would've guessed. Getting a more specific diagnosis than that is fruitless
