and most of what they invent is ways to get around their Nanny state regulations that make things 'too expensive'. regulated telecom services...so folks figure out 'cheap ways' to get around the high cost government services. Like SKYPE....instead of 50c a minute or dollar a minute toll charges by the state phone company. Here we had mCI that gave us 3c/minute long distance..... once again, you suffered under your Nanny state until someone figured out a way to outfox the government strangling services kept high and run inefficiently.

Your cellphone service is 3 to five times the cost..... in Europe.....so you had to invent SMS...to get around your tax and nanny state less expensively.....


Awesome post, I gave it rec. Tele gives examples of things that were invented in Europe in order to prove that nothing is invented in Europe.
