Monkey made some half-baked comments about the Taiwanese and by inference the Chinese (I presume) not being innovative people.
Here’s a list of Chinese inventions off the top of my head with only two seconds of consideration. I’m sure you can rattle off a million and one Western inventions, but what exactly is Monkey’s point. What’s the point of you Monkey? Come on let’s hear it!:
Hot air balloon
The Rudder (with holes and solid)
The trigger mechanism for a gun
First earthquake detector (could detect the direction of an Earthquake over 500 miles away)
and the list could go on and on.
