interesting ... I understand now why dogs need to raise their leg to pee, because their first ancestor was peeing without doing that, and some kind of wall fell on him, so now they all put their leg on the wall to prevent a potontiel massive object falling on them...

One invention that Chinese did invent was the compass! If this wasn't invented, Columbus would never have found America and you know what would have happened....

Oh, and yes because the compass was "made in China", Columbus ended up in America and not India...:-)

and still today I don't have Maple sauce, or barely access to Peanut butter which I kinda love, and even the Louisiana's Tabasco is a miracle in some places, and just to be thinking of food ;) ..p.s.-and Mongolia hasn't got Cow milk, so to serve the British tea somewhere over there >:)

#4 that may not be true. Actual theory is that the "wet compass" was invented in Europe independently from China. A compass was definitely known in Europe before Marco Polo's travels to China.

#4 Also, the Vikings discovered America like 200years before Columbus, but they don't teach that in American schools.

#12 - yes, actually they do. Colombus is focused on more, however, for a variety of reasons.

Second segment I've seen from this show and it's so stupid. Seems like they just criticize other nations and don't look at how much they stink on their own. China did just fine without glass. Look how long they survived in history without relying on anyone else. The show said it, they came to China. If these British idiots are so advanced, why did they go to a nation that uses paper for windows, hah. BTW, im not Chinese, im an American still upset over the last segment. >:)

Interesting yes, but like alot of QI it's just useless trivia, might help you win the pub quiz though
