Can I also ask what the inventors went back to before the drawing board was invented?

What about Irish inventors?

I've heard that it was an Irishman who invented the toilet seat - but an Englishman put the hole in it. ;D

Thomas Crapper, a Londoner, is generally credited with the invention of the Water Closet (WC) that used a U-bend and water flush in the nineteenth-century.

However, there are those that disagree - http://www.jldr.com/crapper.htm

I know that was why and it was Dr John Snow, who'd noticed the reason for so many Londoners were dieing of Cholera as they were drinking from an adulterated water pump. Or so I once heard on the radio.
