Robertson head screws... you know, the square head ones?

They are much easier to use... but, since they are Canadian, those stupid Americans won't use them... idiots...

The Candu Reactor =&gt; I don't know if this is a good invention though since it is the type of reactor most developing nations have for their nucleaar process.

Henry Ford refused to use them unless he got exclusive US distribution rights. Robertson said no and thus americans have never seen them.

<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">gramophone</font>
invented by a German-American, Emile Berliner

<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">telephone</font>
invented by a some guy born in Scotland, first call placed in Boston, Mass...not sure how this makes it a Canadian invention...because Bell talked about it when he was visiting his dad in Brantford? I guess...

"For example in a speech in 1909 in Ottawa, Alexander Graham Bell said: “Of this you may be sure, the telephone was invented in Canada. It was made in the United States.”

even Bell himself seemed confused about the genesis of his magical hand-talking-machine

I guess we'll call it a tie!

uhhh.... am i busted?
it's probably less recent than that -- so i suppose not really recently at all -- but i remember being told when i was in grade school that they weren't available outside canada.

recent == &lt; 15 yrs?
