The Ironclad. Sorry, played Civ 2 a bit too much. That was my favorite unit to use.

Oh, I was just reminded of the Four Great Inventions "from ancient China that are celebrated in Chinese culture for their historical significance and as symbols of ancient China's advanced science and technology": Compass, Gunpowder, Papermaking, and Printing.

The cotton gin, of course.

I wonder if non-American children have this drilled into them. WHO among us does not know the inventor of the cotton gin?

Certainly not something I was ever taught.

I didn't think so.

But it is a pretty handy thing. When I lived in NC, I was surrounded by fields of cotton. I still have the first and only piece of cotton that I ever picked. The seeds are still embedded so deeply in that hunk of cotton that I can't even see them.

Have you ever seen the movie Places in the Heart? That's a good cotton picking movie.

It was processing rather than picking this side of the pond. Lots of cotton mills in the North of England, especially Lancashire.
