    A family stalemate

    The wife and I just had a headed discussion. Over what?

    Exactly, what has a Thai person invented?

    I say nothing.

    The wife says that she will sleep with the daughter tonight.

    So exactly what is a Thai invention? Hell, I may be wrong...

    Thai women can be moody sometimes.
    Got the same response when I made a similar comment.

    There has never been invented anything of real importance in Thailand. There is speculation that rice cultivation was "invented" in Thailand, although it is impossible to be 100% sure of such a claim. Most likely, even that was a copy… The tuk-tuk was invented in Thailand, but that is only a motorized rickshaw, one part copied from India and the other part western.

    They did invent the 'smiling coup' though.

    The King has patented a rain making device, I believe. They used it over Hua Hin a year or so ago.

    As ER says debatable,
    For instance stellae with a similar script to that supposed to have originated with Ramkamhaeng have been found in Laos and dated to an earlier period

    Harsh. Most inventions are merely the recombining, reconstituting or reimagining of existing technologies. The Tuk-tuk's merely an example of that, doesn't make it any less of an 'invention' though.
