comment Did America ignore British patents during Industrialization
@James - True. In fact, it is quite within the US Congress' power to behave like the Kings of old and bestow a patent on some random person they happen to feel like financially supporting. Same with copyrights. It only has any relation to creation of the thing in question because Congress decided to write laws to that effect.

@FelixGoldberg, I certianly wouldn't mind, but it would be off topic for this question. I'll see if I can find a good link to get you started.

comment Why did native Americans and Europeans mix in South America but not in North America?
Valid points. Note that Portugese intermarriage in Africa (and the resultant influx of disease-resitant genetic material) may have been one of the things that allowed them to colonize tropical Africa. The British mostly tried to stick to sub-tropical areas.

comment What did Mesopotamian beehives look like?
@lins314159 - Domesticated beehives are built by the beekeepers, not the bees.

comment What is Adios Bruce Lee?
I have a vague memory of a promotional short for Bruce Li from the 70's. The general gist was that he was going to be the next Bruce Lee.
