Re: Gov Research

"HTTP invented at CERN" - no, it was designed at CERN, the concept had been around for decades. And really, the cost of CERN is far, far higher than the cost of developing HTTP would have been.

"Internet - Al Gore put the bill though congress" - Haha, very funny

"Teflon - NASA" - no, Dupont

"Computers - Bletchley Park" - No. I'm sure we all know how wrong that is.

"Graphene - University of Manchester" - nope, simply not true. They're leaders in the field today, but they didn't discover it.
