Lying again mr obesity, You brought up the fact that Lanchester disk brakes were useless, so once again you are caught in a lie. Well done/

Do you get paid for it because you are not even adequate at it, you are getting paid under false pretences, that’s is surely fraud.

I am not bothered about the american hype

See
http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/atheism/T...

which included links to some respected academic sites showing FACTS such as

First working powered aeroplane invented and patented in 1842 by William Henderson of Nottingham, England

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

The first manned powered flight was by a twenty-five year old New Zealander, Richard Pearse on March 31, 1902.

However you are welcome to delusion yourself as much as you feel best suites your nationalistic pedanticism

Yes the sun does rise in the east, you point being what? That the US is always late in getting the sun?

This is one of the few truths you tell, yes the UK is a monarchy, and without it the US would not be the same today, live with your bottled up jealousy.

Tell me, Chubby: why do history books on this planet insist the UK declared war on German?
The British Declaration of War
The British declaration of war against Nazi Germany came at 11.15 on September 3rd 1939. Neville Chamberlain spoke to the nation via radio. Britain had given Hitler an ultimatum to withdraw from Poland after the Germans invaded Poland on September 1st.
++
Now show us when Germany declared war on the UK...
Yes it was a typo, go on have a quick wank. I should have written

Tell me obese one, why did Japan and Germany declare war on the US

However regarding your statement, probably because that is FACT rather like that other fact you like to try and pick arguments with that the UK is a monarchy and unlike those other fallacies that the Wright brothers invented the aeroplane and that I claimed the UK captured the U505

I have no argument, I agree with you entirely. The UK did declare war on Germany because Germany invaded Poland and the UK is a monarchy

I disagree with you and can prove that the Wright brothers did not invent the aeroplane and that I did not claim the UK captured the U505

Now have you got anything else you want to argue about?

Barefoot, you just ignored a post explaining just that with your manchild "Isn't" reply. What good would it be explaining to you for the second, third, ninth, sixtieth, or hundredth time?

As you seemed to enjoy quoting Judge Judy in the past, here is a quote from her that sums you up perfectly:

"Don't try to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work, and it annoys the pig."

Anymore loaded questions we need to deal with or do you need time out for your milk and cookies?

Well certainly the invention of powered flight was British, after all we are talking about powered flight are we not? Or have you moved the goalposts again?
The Wright Brothers used powered flight in 1903 at Kitty Hawk. Becoming the inventors of the first airplane.

Wrong. The Wrght brothers claim to be first to fly in a powered aeroplane, a myth that US historians like to keep alive. They certainly did not invent the aeroplane

The history of powered flight goes back to William Henson and John Stringfellow more than 50 years before Kitty Hawk

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Samuel_H...
http://www.chardmuseum.co.uk/Powered_Flight/

Then French successful experiments including

http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/578...

And not particularly successful but never the less manned powered flight some 9 month before the Wright brothers “made history”
http://www.ctie.monash.edu.au/hargrave/pearse...

All before the Wright brothers

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_aviat...
Is more concise.

You can of course go back even further if you want to consider unpowered flight, http://firstflight.open.ac.uk/cayley/cayley.h...

Or perhaps to

Leonardo da Vinci whose detailed designs for mechanical flight still exist today

Or

Abbas Ibn Firnas in the 9th century

or

Or even back to 400 BC China with the first know kite.

Well, actually, it's because of the predatory nature of US corporations. They'll patent anything they can, often before it's even dreamed up, then enforce those patents with force if needed.

Complete dung.

"Of prophetic design, it closely resembled a modern microlight aircraft in appearance. After considerable taxiing on his farm paddocks Pearse made his first public flight attempt down Main Waitohi Road adjacent to his farm. After a short distance aloft, perhaps 50 yards, he crashed on top of his own gorse fence. No details were recorded, by Pearse or onlookers, of this tentative flight. In two letters, published in 1915 and 1928, the inventor writes of February or March 1904 as the time when he set out to solve the problem of aerial navigation. He also states that he did not achieve proper flight and did not beat the American brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright who flew on 17 December 1903. However, a great deal of eyewitness testimony, able to be dated circumstantially, suggests that 31 March 1903 was the likely date of this first flight attempt.(The year 1902 also has its advocates.) Pearse continued his flying experiments, achieving several further powered take-offs or long hops, most of them witnessed. None of them, in terms of length or control, was a true flight by any strict definition. In July 1906 he patented his aircraft."

So he flew and forgot to mention it to anyone... until 12 years later... when he was pretty sure the best he recalled it was before the Wright Brothers.

Cough.

Silly Wright Brothers had witness and were selling airplanes for ten years.

That was not your original stance which stated

“The inventors of the first airplane were Orville and Wilbur Wright”

Notice the word inventors?

but seeing as how you have now realised your misstate (again) moved the goalposts (again) may I suggest you try

That the UK is a monarchy?

That the US captured the U505?

or twenty more that you stomp you feet and insist that I am wrong... excepting that I have the facts?
