    The telescope has come up at least twice and I made a big fuss about glass and polished lenses being the thing that moved the centre of innovation from China to the West.
    You're right though, I have been a bit of a hard taskmaster. I upset one person by rejecting the coffee maker and he's not been back since. :(

    No. I knew you hadn't read it through properly but it was a compliment that you still managed to bring up some major inventions the rest of us had missed.

    You could be right. As a non-coffee drinker I forget what people can be like before they've had their caffeine fix.
