Happy Birthday Benjamin Franklin!

300 years old today! horray! Franklin was one of those few men who have been almost universally admired in life and death. He was a great enlightenment thinker, a great humanist, a great diplomat, and it was Franklin who helped create a positive p0liticial relationship with france, consequently helping to win the revolutionary war. Horray for Benjamin Franklin!

Ol' Ben is severely underappreciated these days. He left practically no stone unturned in his search for knowledge. Lightning rods, magic squares, prteey women ... a real polymath.
