not the type of question I was going for, but the answer is spaghetti.
Popular legend has it that Marco Polo introduced pasta to Italy following his exploration of the Far East in the late 13th century; however, we can trace pasta back as far as the fourth century B.C., where an Etruscan tomb showed a group of natives making what appears to be pasta. The Chinese were making a noodle-like food as early as 3000 B.C. And Greek mythology suggests that the Greek God Vulcan invented a device that made strings of dough (the first spaghetti!).
Pasta made its way to the New World through the English, who discovered it while touring Italy. Colonists brought to America the English practice of cooking noodles at least one half hour, then smothering them with cream sauce and cheese. But it was Thomas Jefferson who is credited with bringing the first "maccaroni" machine to America in 1789 when he returned home after serving as ambassador to France.
The first industrial pasta factory in America was built in Brooklyn in 1848 by, of all people, a Frenchman, who spread his spaghetti strands on the roof to dry in the sunshine.
and there you have it! Spaghetti was first!

Why do rich kids look down on other kids? And why cant everyone be nice?
Not all rich kids do, but I understand what you mean. It does seem like the majority of them do, main reason i've come up with is usually they're jealous. A lot of rich kids don't see their parents very often so they take it out on kids that have a strong family unit. Other times they're raised to believe that people that don't havae a lot of money are lazy or are not worth their time, sometimes they come up with these thoughts on their own, but a lot of it is how a person is raised. Everyone can't be nice because then there would be no arguments and people would never evolve or have any new ideas or confront people with risque thoughts. You have to have both sides of everything to make the world work. Just like you have to have light and dark, male and female, etc. Everyone can't always be nice, but people should consider others feelings and try to make the right choice on what to say and or do.
Exactly, but the best thing to remember is that you don't have to impress anyone else except yourself and be yourself. In the end your the person who has be happy with what you've done, everything you've done will stay with you forever. Others forget about what you have done, but you will always remember what you have done.
