Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be our national bird.
He also suggested arming our troops in the Revolution with longbows, seeing as they misfired less frequently. So if we had listened to him, America would now be a martially maladjusted second-class power with a funny since of ornothological symbolism.May he rest in peace.
Whatever. Longbows were good enough to overthrow the French aristocracy, especially when coupled with bodkin arrow points. At the time, they were the best technology had to offer. I would still respect a guy who had shot an animal with a bow more than a guy who had shot an animal with a musket. In theory.
Bows more effective than firearms. Must've been why the Aztecs were so hard to beat.
horses, bom. horses.
Ben franklin was gay. literally , he should have had my idea for a bumpersticker on his carriage.
jas,i don't know, man. as the infamous 'father of france', i think that is one of the few insults you could throw at B.F. that wouldn't stick.
