    Humour.

    I will do this. Nothing in my life matters except this. No moment in my life exists except this moment. I am born in this moment, and if I fail, I will die in this moment.

    It was invented by Thomas Edison and Sir Joseph Swan at the same time, so it only kinda counts.

    The original design for the telephone was invented by an italian, it's just he didn't have the funding, so Graham Bell stole the design and pretended it was his.

    Yes, I know I'm from the UK, but I'm from ENGLAND, and so instantly I'm against anyone scottish. So there.

    Lara Croft was invented in England, I'd say that was a pretty era defining invention.

    We also invented punk music, y'know we did.

    And don't forget, Jesus was English.

    I misread the title. I thought it read 'things that the british invaded'. I'm a bit disappointed now, so I'll leave.

    Unless he stole the idea, he invented it.
