A continent that is hated a lot by Americans, Asians and many other people around the world, because people only like to remember bad things about us, even though we have done far more good than bad for the world. We invented pretty much everything that people use and take granted for, and no one gives us credit, because, as I've said before, We Europeans are seen as the scum of the Earth, and no one likes to give us credit, but here are a tiny percentage of:
The car, the internal combustion engine, the steam engine, electricity, the generator of electricity, the jet engine, the first aeroplane, the computer, the television, the telephone, the radio, nuclear power, the tank, the war ship, the English language, the French language, the Caucausian race (vast majority), the United States of America (wouldn't exist without Europe and don't bother denying it because you know it's true), the photocopier, x-rays, the contact lens, many many different cures for diseases such as smallpox, scurvy, malaria and medicines like penicillin, the first light bulb (I think), the steam engine, the steam turbine, the lawn mower, the World Wide Web, democracy, collodion process, the typewriter, the flushing toilet, the submarine,
and probably things such as modern education, sport, Western politics and pretty much every process used in industry and science. Without Europe, the Western world wouldn't exist, and neither would the English language, or any of the things I mentioned above.
If you hate Europeans, the next time you use any of the things listed above, remind yourself of how much you hate us.
If you really hate Europeans, then I hope you remind yourself of your hatred the next time you use electricity, drive a car, fly a plane, watch the television, play on the computer, or even eat a sandwich, because none of those things would exist without the European people and continent.
P.S.: I don't hate America, Asia, or anywhere else in the world. I just think we Europeans deserve respect. Is that too much to ask?
