While living abroad as the United States Ambassador to France in 1781, Franklin penned the infamous essay "Fart Proudly," which is also known as "A Letter to a Royal Academy about farting" and "To the Royal Academy of Farting." Franklin sent the letter to Richard Price, a Welsh philosopher and Unitarian minister, and to his friends. In the essay, Franklin proposed that there should be a scientific study conducted on farts and that researchers should develop a drug to make the act of farting less offensive. He wrote, in part:
It is universally well known, that in digesting our common food, there is created or produced in the bowels of human creatures, a great quantity of wind. That the permitting this air to escape and mix with the atmosphere, is usually offensive to the company, from the fetid smell that accompanies it.
Jim, Well if you do the math I'm sure you got your money's worth over the years. It's like us and our coffee machines even that crappy greasy spoon coffee is somewhere between $1 & $2 a cup. We burnt through a few machines over the years but 2 or 3 coffees each at 25 cents each per day adds up pretty quick to pay off the cost of the machine.Sad day in the kitchen appliance division.
I cooked the motor something in the Vitamix blender.
That old electronic burn smell.
So I guess it's a fleabay option to get another base.
This one served us well for 25yrs.
