"Finally, the Wrights needed headwinds or catapults to start their planes, so they were not fully self-powered. But Brazil's Santos-Dumont was (1906, first official airplane flight)."

Thatīs exactly the point.

Like in any scientific endeavour, the proofs are pointing to Dumontīs flight as the first self-powered. The airplane can be reproduced and flies with the same engine power easily and are lots of evidences showing his original flight.

But, for sure not only him and the american brothers were pioneers on this field of engineering.

True but how can you guys even begin to compare yourselves with a country that invented Pablum, instant mashed potatoes, the Abdomenizer, Wonderbra, the Caesar drink, garbage bags and the egg carton?

There were a few others of a more minor nature like Insulin, Canola oil, the Walkie Talkie, the TV camera, Amplitude Modulation, Cesium Beam atomic clock, the Telephone, the Pager, Hydrofoils, The electric street car, Snowmobiles, Electric wheelchair, snowblower, prosthetic hands, foghorn, gas masks, IMAX theatre, electron microscope, plexiglass, the pacemaker, the electric oven, paint rollers, Ardox nails, Robertson screws and last but not least, Marrette wire nuts.

Not bad for the 35th most populous country. I guess when you have that much space, it really 'opens' your mind.

Others may have beat him to the idea, but no question on the electric street car front Frank J. Sprague rules, his cars were the first that actually worked: Frank J. Sprague - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Don't forget where the transistor, IC, and internet came from along with Jersey Shores (unfortunately), the very devices that make this back patting thread possible.

Of course don't forget Cern (CH) and Tim Berners Lee (UK) responsible for the web browser concept and NCSA Mosaic (US) for developing the first browser to see widespread use - as an early adopter I used it.

My point is the planet is something of a technological community (maybe) and that the accomplishments of individuals in many places go into making all of our lives better..

IMO Nationalistic jingoism in general is not good for the planet, just sayin'.

I'm afraid the planet does not care a bit but it is indeed bad for the people living on this planet, bad for all of us. And it will continue to be so. Old blood may get wise but young blood is 'crazy horse'. Actually I laugh about all this stupidity and as long as I don't have to suffer a war, I will keep laughing.
