That is right the USA is 241 years old today. Just a baby still as far as countries go more or less. So in celebration here a just few things the world can thank the USA for….
The Ferris wheel…where would the world be without one of these!
Chocolate cookies believe it or not. It was made by accident in 1930 by Ruth Graves Wakefield. That was some accident.
Ah the light bulb and electricity. We can thank Thomas Edison for those. The world would be an interesting place without them. Electricity has allowed mankind to reach it’s must productive and laziest potential. All the things that can be done for us know allows us to do much less now.
Speaking of laziness…perhaps one of the best inventions out there to help people reach new laziness heights was invented in 1927 by Philo T. Farnsworth. Now there was radio and film as well….but this….this baby changed it all. Now people can spend hours binge watching shows if they want with the help of the next invention….
That’s right the internet….the thing you are using right now. Formally introduced in 1982…though it’s history goes back even further…by the National Science Foundation that founded the Computer Science Network which created the standardized internet as we know it. Public commercial use of the Internet began in mid-1989 and would explode in the 90’s getting the world hooked on it. Today people can’t live without it. It helps people sit for ungodly amounts of time watching and reading things or even playing things.
There are a ton of other things that the USA helped invent of course but my time is up here. I got to go watch some Netflix and read some emails. I am getting behind in my lazy time and have to catch up.
