It wasn't a race, Packy, the enigmas captured in 1941 were immediately superseded and the UK got little intelligence as the German navy went to a new model.

I explained this to you already, Packy, pay attention.

And the capture of the U505- by AMERICANS, not British, as you claimed- happen THREE years later.

Here is the math, Packy: 1944-1941 - 3.

UK- monarchy, yes or no, Packy?

The German submarines sank far more in ships and total tonnage than the British navy, no matter how hard you stomp your feet.

Do you need for me to remind you who captured the U505?

Uh...

Yes, you were wrong, and you jumped to the conclusion, and you want me to be responsible for your stupidity.

If you would read up on the code war in WWII instead of paragraphs that you thing prove you right, I wouldn't have to keep pulling down your panties and having everyone laugh at your tiny Indian junk, Packy.

The Germans knew the Brits captured the U110; the intelligence the Brits was limits.

The Germans did not know that the Americans captured the U505, the code books and two new machines that were used for the rest of the war.

Who invented the airplane again?

First successful indoor test flight by John Stringfellow in Chard, Somerset, England, 1848

In 1871 Alphonse Pénaud successfully flew a model aircraft powered by twisted rubber in Paris
In 1874, Félix du Temple built the "Monoplane", in Brest, France… it is generally recognised that it achieved lift off under its own power …, glided for a short time and returned safely to the ground, making it the first successful powered flight in history, although the flight was only a short distance and a short time.

in 1890 Clément Ader achieved a powered hop of about 50 metres (165 feet) through the air with his plane,Éole

I guess you forgot to mention the long list of other toys invented by everyone else before the Brits.
8 inches is enough to make you scream.

Hell no, I can go back to Chinese gliders and the European renaissance and French lighter than air flight if you want but I understood we were only talking about powered flight and we know it would only make you look more foolish

Great show against the All Blacks! You guys stuck in there, but 6 or 7 minutes of destruction was all difference there was.

Now, you have got us this Saturday! We have picked a very strong team... After that spirited performance, we are not taking the Scots lightly.

US patents per capita =#3 in the world

So, America is good taking the ideas of others and running with them

For example take
The light bulb as well as the electric chair. the movie camera, the power generator, x-ray photographs (fluoroscope), the storage battery, the record player , wax paper, the telegraph are all Edison patents that Edison did not invent

However let’s consider the things that the US did invent
Fast food, something close to your heart and your obesity
Pornography, the only way you can get you kicks
Obesity, see fast food above
American accents, nuf said…
Hand cuffs, well deserved
Etc, etc

Not forgetting your own Thomas Midgely Jr who’s inventions are single handily responsible for more deaths in this world than any other single person… EVER. It’s good to know that he died by entanglement and strangulation by one of his own inventions, really could not have happened to a more deserving inventor.
