Chauncy... I was wondering where you were, you old bird you!   ;D

Since Benjamin Franklin was brought into question... how many knew he loved to drink, was a womanizer, farted a lot and thought it was funny!   :D :D  Heard in a dimly lit bar after someone farted.... "Your voice has changed but your breath is still the same."   :D

Beer is not the best thing in life, but it makes all those other things better. :)

It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt.

Dunno source, but it sounds like Twain.

Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

Benjamin Franklin


There's a lot of debate about if he actually said that....

Yeah, especially since Ben Franklin was known to be very temperate. I'm a big fan of Ben Franklin and I highly recommend the biography by Walter Isaacson. Allot of Ben's quotes are timeless.

Here's a good Ben Franklin Quote as apt today as it was in his day.

"Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do."
Benjamin Franklin

Actually, that is from Proverbs, IIRC.

Non-theological biblical study being a subject of some interest to me, it was off to Google I went. Here's what I found:

Quote
Peter Lewerin has suggested Proverbs 17:28 as an early source of the line: "Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding."

Makes me want to hold up cardboard signs that say "Proverbs 17:28" at sporting events.
