Hey dude.....The Romans openly admitted to using the idea of a assembly line that they got from somebody else.
History is a bit vague as to who......
Henry Ford perfected it to the point of becoming mainstream.
So the assembly line hasn't changed 1 bit since Henry Ford stole the idea? I didn't realize all our automotive assembly lines were still using 1913 technology.

Obviously my educating Henryfloored to Ford’s activities in 1930’s NaziGermany struck a chord.

Thats good. Now Henryfloored realizes that old man Ford wasn’t exactly an angel to be admired.
With all the racists and anti-semites on this forum you'd think there would be a picture of HF in the banner.

And chebby and fodge. Why is that.
Because they all copied it Eventually. Ford actually negotiated with Kearns to buy his patent and then just ripped him off and installed it on their cars. Sleazy as hell. Do you not know this story? See the movie Flash of Genius...it’s pretty good.
