Default What did the Brits ever do for us?

We Brits have been bashed a lot recently, some of it justified, but we have done good stuff too:

Looking at (some of) what did the Brits do for us from a science/tech viewpoint. (15 min vid by an Ozzie).

They are if people are kind to each other. Mismanagement and corruption are probably just as much to blame for people going hungry as ecological or meteorological factors, and when you add in regional warfare and the indifference of some governments to the suffereing their own populace, even more so. Food CAN usually be grown or provided but it's political factors that stop it. Humans can be such a-holes sometimes.
