In 1912 there were three countries on the brink of inventing the aeroplane, America suprisingly got there first, but within two years the British and French had moved far ahead of America, and had the real planes for ww1, America did not, it was incredible how quickly britain and France left America behind, just two years
Actually Britain and France beat the US however the US was the first with manned, controlled flight

Baseball isn't rounders.
Chinese were playing soccer two thousand years ago.
Did you also discover sunlight?
True, it is not rounder, is an adaptation of rounders made when the rules about movement when holding the ball confused.

Who mentioned soccer? Oh you did, remember that.

Well the England certainly discovered it before the US, when was the US formed?

Followed by Clement Ader in France who flew a steam-powered bat-winged plane in Paris in 1890. The aircraft took off, reached a height of 20 cm (8 inches)
Wow... 8 inches...

I guess you forgot to mention the long list of other toys invented by everyone else before the Brits.
