    Some of those are close to things I've done. Others make me wonder about the sanity of the inventors. These are not mutually exclusive sets.

    I'm a little perturbed by the assumption behind the headline of this post.

    The original post does not make any reference to America, nor is there anything quintessentially American about the images themselves. At least one of the images is demonstrably of foreign origin (as evidenced by the license plate of the car in the second to last image), and several others have a foreign flavor.

    Let's celebrate creativity as a *human* trait. Americans are undeniably creative problem solvers. But is that because they are Americans, or because they are human?
