Ben Franklin

    Ben Franklin was an inventor, a writer, and an engineer (of machines). He created many things most of us take for granted today!! Back then of course these machines that he built were necessities, unlike they are now, for example, we take bath tubs for granted but back then, you took a bath in a big bucket until Franklin’s idea for a bath was created, and get this he made one that was portable and had a top, so people could talk to him when he was taking a bath! 
    One of the things that I found interesting while I was searching the topic online was a section at the Kids Site for the Benjamin Franklin House was that they found bones buried in the back yard!! It turned out that a man named William Henson, who had been courting the landowner’s daughter, Polly. William was an anatomistanatomy, and was famous for his experiments, especially the ones about how blood flows around the body. He basically taught people about the body and that’s why they had the bones.

Humble Beginning

    Ben Franklin was a normal kid back in colonial times, he read books, played games, didn’t have enough money to go to school because of taxes that were too high, and had a small house above his father’s store, which was a candle shop. At an early age, Ben had a knack for math. His parents noticed this and allowed him to go to school for a few years, but soon after, he was taken out of school again and started working in his father’s candle shop, getting as much money as he could, so he could buy books.

Big-Big Mistake-Mistake

    Once Ben really wanted a yo-yo, I mean he really wanted one. So, once he had earned 5 cents he went out to the store an bought a yo-yo, later on in life he realized it had been a waste of his money and he’d never do something like that again.

Amateur, not semi-pro[edit]

If he has received no money from his music he's not semi-pro, he's an amateur. Semi-pro means you get some money but it's not your living. Nothing wrong with being amateur - some of the best musicians I've played with have been amateurs, and I've seen some crap pros. Claiming semi-pro could get the Revenooers after him, thinking he is making money and wanting their cut. Peridon (talk) 21:21, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
