No, you're both wrong.
It's called Indiana Jones and the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.

You do realise remembering that show makes us both sound like old fogies though,

Yes, but we get to stay up later watching it.


Besides, it's an American product. You don't see anything the Europeans have made being this famous. American awesomeness FTW!!!!!

What about Nivea creme? I bet more people know Nivea creme than Indiana Jones. And get out of that car if you can't see it. It's an European invention.

Pfft. Only skin-obsessed, flaky (no pun intended) types would be the type of people that are unaware of Indiana Jones.

And I seem to recall that the car was something that we had to perfect for you guys.

Well, I don't drive, and the people who do hate the crowds that go to see the movie in the first week, so I'm in the same boat. I say, damn the crowds, full steam ahead!

Actually, we did most of that ourselves. And it can be argued that to this days most European cars are better than American ones, because seriously, many of those American cars are just not effective. They need much too much fuel on the same tasks and distances as other cars.

But if you don't agree on cars, then what about coffee filters? European too.

Oh, and should I mention: Pizza? Italian. And Italy's in Europe, as you might recall.

Well, a tank performs like a tank is designed to perform. Gas efficiency wasn't a top priority. Not sure about coffee filters, I mean, that seems like something that would spring up only with the invention of the coffee machine. But considering that vending machines were invented by an Egyptian, neither of us wins there.

And much like the Spanish guitar, Americans eat pizza so much, it's pretty much become an American thing. Right?

Gas efficiciency is always a priority. Also, we're talking about cars, not tanks, silly boy.

Also, there used to be special coffee cups and coffee pots that you could use with the coffee filters. And really, you can also use it with only a cup. Seriously.

And Heron was greek, not Egyptian, even if he lived in Egypt. The Greeks also invented lots of things we profit from this day. I recall one ancient greek guy inventing automatically opening and closing doors (and we're talking about huge temple doors here), using only water and levers. And he even hid the whole mechanism underground, so you would have a lovely illusion of the doors magically opening.

Though seriously, I think you should have looked for "Coffee Maker", not "Coffee Machine".


Then there's central heating, which was developed over here long before we even went to America. Maybe the South American cultures developed something similar, but we're talking about *AMERICA* here after all. That's not the same.


Though really, this discussion is rather silly, considering that the topic of the new Indiana Jones movie is of European origins. No, the Crystal Skulls are not of South American origin. They are quite well known to have been manufactured by the use of jeweler's tools and machinery (which would be necessary to work such a detailed and correct skull into a very hard material like Quartz.) in 19th century Europe. Silly boy.

Why, what makes you think I looked under "coffee machine"?

Okay, you got me there, I admit. Although I think it's really the fault of the idiot who made "coffee machine" redirect to the vending machine article.

Wellllll, so some people claim. I recently read an article on it in Archeology magazine, and the results on tests on whether or not the skulls was made with modern tools were inconclusive. Still, don't go ruining KotCS' story!
