Benjamin Franklin

Best known as one of the founding forefathers of the United States of America gracing the US 100-dollar bill, Benjamin Franklin was also an accomplished scientist who invented the lightning rod and bifocal spectacles, a political theorist and satirist, a key figure in the thoughts that shaped the Age of Enlightenment with his documentation of the history of physics, and a wise, quotable individual who famously said:

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

"Amen!" to that.
