Always on the cutting edge, those daring Scots attempt to put a teacake in space. Will they succeed?

I would have found it more interesting, if they measured the radioactivity before and after.

Draculya If it was the 19th Century, Scottish inventers/pioneers would be giving the world: The telephone, Penicillin, The steam engine, Dialysis, the toaster, the Television, Anti-septic surgery, The bicycle. the list goes on....

layla_wilson Some of those are a little gray area-ish. Multiple inventors, or Scottish born but American made inventor, or just not Scottish

yelloow12 Yeh as agurney said, but even if he had moved to the US at 35 then invented the telephone, it would still be a Scottish invention. 

Saying the telephone is an American invention is like when Trump said Elon Musk is a great American entrepreneur. Hes South African.

Hmm I suppose.

There has to be SOME kind of cut off though. Like what if someone moved to America (or anywhere for that matter), studied a particular field, did a bunch of research and experiments, and then made a successful invention, all under the support, tools, and education of that nation. Would their country of origin still get the credit?

yelloow12 Hmm, if someone Scottish moved to America when they were 10, then successfully invented something due to the support, tools and education there. I would then class them as a Scottish born American inventor.

A sort of example I could give is my cousins. They moved to Texas when they were still kids, They are proud to be Scottish but identify as American. If they achieve anything I would class it as an American achievement.

Over all it would probably come down to who the individual Identified as.

AGB stole the idea for the phone - as he did a few other things.

yelloow12 perhaps, but he didn't become a US citizen until he was 35, and after he had invented the stuff he's recognised for now.

Do I need to comment that you could see the curvature of the Earth?

Isn't that caused by the bubble lens on the camera?

Gerry1of1 "Don't confuse the issue with facts."

That's OK. I made that fact up. (Did I tell you that I used to be a Republican?)

It looks just like a big disk. Do you see the foggy line around the edge of the disk? That's where the World Ocean falls off onto the Top Turtle. Then the water is replaced by magic. I know libtards don't believe in magic. They believe in science. But if science were real, we would be polluting our beautiful disky planet. 

As it is, the water, and the air that's dragged along with it, is constantly being replenished. By magic. If the Earth were a globe, there would be no place for the pollution to go, and then we would be forced to believe that all the politicians who are accepting money from polluting companies are traitors, and enemies of the people they have sworn to serve. 

I refuse to believe it, and that's flat.

semichisam01 Of course the water is not replace by magic, its like an infinity pool it runs into the scupper and is pumped back up.

semichisam01   The water does  not fall off the edge of the Earth because, as any fool knows, the flat Earth is surrounded by a 200 foot high impenetrable wall of ice that the government doesn't let anyone approach.

Gerry1of1 I'm afraid this is a matter about which you, I and the Top Turtle will have to agree to disagree.

More impressive that they sent it so high yet were able to recover it.
