Asia is rich in Cultures, would say China the first to use gunpowder (rocket)
America is the 1st to advance in Technology (Actually it was Europe)

well nothing to say until someone reply to this thread and explain more.


China was slow in using its inventions to conquer the world, it took White nations to slap China around for 100 before they woke up and I bet China will still be slow to act.
China is like a FAT WHORE.


LOL!!! SOMEONE FINALLY PULLED THE GUNPOWDER CARD LOL!!! Holy shit. So true though. Honestly I could only think an Asian person would have gunpowder and use it for rockets and then fucking white people make guns and shit rotfl.

Makes me lol so hard because it fits the stereotypes soooooo well.-.-


You ask alot, Asians did not come up with gun powder because they had huge ass Armies fighting each other (50,000 plus on each side) gunpowder like the crossbow were made by people who were outnumbered by the enemy and thought about how to even up the odds.
Its not like China was quick to make anything that would give them superiority in war.

"We can lose 300 million people in a Nuclear war and still do conventional warfare."
Mao

Its talk like that which keeps China from being on the cutting edge in warfare technology.


Wow. You just talked yourself into a brick wall. You don't quote a random line made by a national leader to generalize for the entire nation. How about we start quoting George W. Bush lines? It may crash Crunchyroll with how long the list is.

It does not matter what Pres. Bush said I am referring to China as a nation who could not discover gunpowder because they have a huge population.

i'll share my point of view here..
first of all, it's kinda weird to hug and cheek kisses on each other ( we don't even do that to close relative)
2nd, exposing yourself to sun light barely naked ( sun tan?/ sun bath ) in the beach, maybe over in western country they don't get much sun light but in asian country we are over exposed to sun light
that's just an opinion though, what i think it's weird ^^.no offense.

My culture doesn't show a lot of love towards one each other. of course I'm asian.

You know how some american parents kiss their kids on the cheek good-bye or pat them on the back or give hugs and words of encouragement. Well, my parents don't do any of those things. The way they encourage is yelling and pointing out our flaws.. It's unbearable, I swear it is.
I know a lot of other parents do that, but it's like even if we made number 1, it's still not good enough.
it sucks. haha.

I guess that they don't know that nobody is complete without character flaws. Really sucks that they didn't do any of that for you.

Well this is all I can explain. I am not sure why am I explaining but all I say is I am explaining about the gun powder, and alot of peoples know that. (Note: These information was found from info. site not by me)

Actually China did found gun powder, which is called salt pepper. The Chinese first used gunpowder in warfare in 904. of making a incendiary projectiles called "flying fires." They didn't really think it was gun powder they just study and found that it can spark and explode.


The discovery of gunpowder in the 800s and the subsequent invention of firearms in the 1100s both coincided with long periods of disunity during which there was some immediate use for infantry and siege weapons




The years 904–906 saw the use of incendiary projectiles called 'flying fires'



The Chinese used gunpowder to make fireworks and for signal flares. Gunpowder was also thought to have uses in medicine and in alchemy (the "science" of trying to change non-precious elements into gold). Soon after its invention, the Chinese used gunpowder for weapons (which they called fire arrows)



Gunpowder is perhaps one of the best known inventions from China. It was developed during the latter part of the Han dynasty, or sometime in the early third century AD, but was generally not used for warfare until at least the eighth century




^ As said in this yahoo question thread- Who were the first nation to make a weapon with gun powder? http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20061118012149AA5rxOK

8/8 peoples in that yahoo thread say China was first to find the gunpowder.

Other info: Zheng He is China Best Navigator. I think most of the site info. say Zheng He (including Cheng with him) set sail to discover the world. His treasure ship is huge as I can see.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FI1AmTa-bV0 This show a model of a Columbus ship and a model of Zheng he ship. You will see the size comparison.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6BUZJHfBHM&feature=related History Channel explaining about Zhang He

I am amazed at China projectile and treasure ship but now China was controlled by Mao and turn in into Communism. Anyway Asia is rich in cultures.

I wear shoes in the house all the time. It saves the socks, and is more comfortable when the floor is cold. If the carpet gets dirty, it just means it needs vacuuming.
