You know of course that the peoples (note the plural) of Africa have a long
and glorious history of mathematics, science & literature which was copied
(the nasty word actually used is _stolen_) by the northeren (ignorant, no
doubt) tribes (NT). Yes, even the beautiful music later on labled
Did you Know: "Beethoven was a black man. This fact was hidden from the
world for centuries by a bunch of nasty conspirators"
Wrong: It's _not_ the dog...
(you do like chewing gum, don't you?)
Now, what on earth has that to do with batteries/LIP/accu/etc? you may
rightly asked. Well, dear reader(s), not only have all the above its roots
in Africa, but also, yes, wait for it....
electricity itself! Th=E1t research led to....
<suspense reaching feverish pitch>
the discovery of the modern day BATTERY!
And then why couldn't the Africans have laid the foundation for
NiCd/NiMH/more... all at the same time? I mean, both contains Ni, doesn't
it? And Africa is one of the largest producers in the world of the stuff...
they should know...
Now, why _did_ I ask the Q in the first place <silly me>? The answer was,
of course right here _in Africa_
ps. If you cared to read this far, you might as well check it out for
yourself: do a search for the following (the internet was apparently _not_
invented at the time; but I can assure you, Africa being the birthplace of
the human race (in dispute at the moment) and subsequently science &
technology, it surely was on the cards...):
+"Abena Walker" +"Pan-Africanist University" +"District of Columbia" <I
suppose DC will suffice> +experimental +Afrocentric +education +programme
and, oh yes, of course, if you care to pinpoint your search: +"United
States of America" <I suppose USA will suffice>
