Basically the text says how much better the Scots are, than... well, anybody else! So our homework assignment was to write a similar one, but with Hungarian inventions. And so I did, you can read it here:
You get home and you have a homework assignment you need to send via e-mail. Where to type it? You can open a microsoft word document, invented by Károly Simonyi. But what is your homework? Is it biology? Because then you can talk about ascorbic acid, or more commonly known as vitamin C, discovered by Albert Szent-Györgyi. Or perhaps you attend a school were you should be more handy, you can always talk about how a helicopter works, invented by Oszkár Asboth. But if you have math homework, pie charts or polls, use excel, by Simonyi again.
But never mind the computer, what if you have a test at the university? You will need a ball point pen, invention of László József Bíró. And what might the test be about? Could be history, you could describe the horrible affects of a nuclear bomb, discovered by Leó Szilárd, Jenő Wigner and Ede Teller. Or if perhaps you are majoring in chemistry, then I suggest you describe how a hidrogen-bomb works, an invention by Ede Teller.
In your very short free time, you can always simply relax, have a sip of bubbly water, thanks to Ányos Jedlik and play a bit with your rubik cube, by Ernő Rubik. Of course, only if you are into that kind of stuff!
You might've not heard about us Hungarians, and we might not be the prettiest country, but certainly the smartest!
