Ben Franklin. He invented daylight savings time, bifocals, and a stove. And he loved to get drunk (He once said, "Beer is proof that God exists and loves us"). He was never president though. He did make large contributions to the constitution and got France to help us during the revolution.

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

Tut, no contest really.


How do you figure that? As far as I can tell, Tut was just a little bitch teenage king that had lots of treasure. He was the Hannah Montana of his time.

First, Benjamin Franklin was never President of the US.

Second, he's definitely cooler than King Tut. We don't really know what Tut did. Its more his tomb that's famous rather than he is.

franklin was president...but not under our current constitution....so it doesn't technically count...he was an amazing intellectual and womanizer...king tut was a kid born into wealth, that died young and was buried with a bunch of gold and possesions...so i think i'd rather be related to franklin then some rich spoiled ass kid

Nope, he never served as President of the United States under the Constitution, Articles of Confederation or otherwise. He was in France until 1785 and then was elected as President of Pennsylvania, which was the equivalent of Governor.


He was however the only guy to sign four of the major documents of the founding of the United States: the Declaration of Independence, the Treaty of Paris, the Treaty of Alliance with France, and the United States Constitution.


History Major. Woot.

Neither. Post another thread if you discover your relation to Ron Jeremy or David Hasselhoff or something.

Tut? Reminds me of fat, balding, southern hillbillies growling about Egypt. That's pure win. \m/

As far as I'm aware King Tut's children all were either stillbirth or miscarried.

The power to feel with others give.

well there wasn't an executive branch under the articles of confederation, so there wasn't ever a president of the country in the current sense under the constitution passed and Washington was elected. There were several presidents of the congress. Hancock was one of them, . Here's a list from wiki. I've never heard of most of these guys, notice that most only served a few months.

* Samuel Huntington (March 1, 1781 – July 9, 1781)
* Thomas McKean (July 10, 1781 – November 4, 1781)
* John Hanson (November 5, 1781 – November 3, 1782)
* Elias Boudinot (November 4, 1782 – November 2, 1783)
* Thomas Mifflin (November 3, 1783 – October 31, 1784)
* Richard Henry Lee (November 30, 1784 – November 6, 1785)
* John Hancock (November 23, 1785 – May 29, 1786)
* Nathaniel Gorham (June 6, 1786 – November 5, 1786)
* Arthur St. Clair (February 2, 1787 – November 4, 1787)
* Cyrus Griffin (January 22, 1788 – November 2, 1788)

Oh also, Randolf served as president of the first continental congress, but I'm not counting that because we were still under British rule at the time.


To TS, sorry for turning this into US history lesson.

Do you have any idea how many concubines and as a result, children that pharoh had? Half of the current population of africa is probably a relative of his.

He only had something like 10 legitimate children i think. So its not totally un-plausable that he is a decendant

It is probably something like King tut's cousins daughters nephews brothers uncles granpas sister.


To the guy above, it's very highly unlikely that half the population of Africa is related to king tut. And there is no way you can track back your ancestry that far to one single person.


For all I know I could be related to.... (thinks of famous mexican from past times).... Ehhh sucks to be mexican :-(
