I haven't looked into England...no doubt a nanny state in your eyes but still home of a few inventions..


FYI DH works daily with CEOs of start-ups in Silicon Valley and I myself wrote a paper on the beginning of LAN (written in 1983-4) Those were exciting times.

I don't disparage anything here...it is a hot bed of innovation.

But your arrogance about countries you have probably never lived in or had contact with irritates me.

Keep downgrading other countries' achievements, blaming it on the political systems etc

Tell us again that Obama and his socialism will kill the Boston High tech area as well as Silicon Valley. We obviously need to hear it.

Just don't get really major burns from an oil explosion and require Spray on Skin....
