Okay, Fine, I'll Be the One to Say It.

I’m always hearing about how the Chinese invented all sorts of great things like paper and fireworks and gunpowder and the compass and who the hell knows what else. But you know what? I’m not buying it. That’s right, I call bullshit on China. Apparently they invented all this stuff but never bothered to tell anybody about it for hundreds of years, until some other country announces that they invented it. Hell, give them a few months and they’ll probably claim that they came up with the iPod in, like, 1674.
