The Top 10 Great Inven­tions From Ireland [info­graphic]
If I were to tell you one place spawned the creation of color photog­raphy, choco­late milk, and soda, I don't know how likely you would be to guess Ireland. But that's the place.

  1. Evidently, accu­rate math was not one of the inven­tions… the "atomic bomb" graphic repre­sents 800,000 volts, not the alleged 600,000. Good thing there were a few other physi­cists in on the project.

  2. I still say "The Turtle" (1770s) counts as a Subma­rine. Even if you don't, there is much wreckage in the Missis­sippi to support the theory of Confed­erate subs during the Amer­ican Civil War, all of the above predate this thingamabob.

  3. Info­graphics, where graphics matter, not info.
    * John Philip Holland was an Irish engi­neer who devel­oped the first subma­rine to be formally commis­sioned by the U.S. Navy, and the first Royal Navy subma­rine, the Holland 1.
    * In 1767 Joseph Priestley invented carbon­ated water when he first discov­ered a method of infusing water with carbon dioxide when he suspended a bowl of water above a beer vat at a local brewery in Leeds, England. So, NOT Robert Percival in 1800.
    * Renault FT-17, the first tank with a "modern" config­u­ra­tion (lots of tanks existed before) was on service since 1917. So, NOT Irish first tank in 1918
    * The ejec­tion seat seems legit.
    * Milk choco­late was devel­oped in Switzer­land by a Swiss. Hans Sloan just made popular drinking hot choco­late with milk instead of water.

  5. +Víktor Bautista i Roca emphasis should be on formally commis­sioned, not first subma­rine. The Royal Navy didn't exactly commis­sion much of the Rebel Army's ad-hoc stuff like The Turtle. Heck even the Confed­erate efforts were a shot in the dark, surprising that they didn't kill a bunch of their own folks pulling it off.

  7. +Dave Grega Yes, I know. That's why I say they care about the "graphic" part, but not the "info". And why I've put the subma­rine in the list of mistakes they have made. It was not the first subma­rine, but the first commis­sioned by the Royal Navy. So, I still don't get what you meant.
