The wisest is not always the most knowledgeable.

common knowledge is not common

common knowledge is only common to the area you are in

and the song " God is great, Beer is good, and people are crazy "


what have you found to be true??

The book of Proverbs. You may be surprised by how many sayings we have originate there. For instance,  Proverbs 17:28 "Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace; When he shuts his lips, he is considered perceptive."

Never argue with a fool, he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

There are two types of sawyers. Those who try to cut off a piece of their mill, and those who lie about it never happening.

All threads on the FF end up discussing food.

JD Processor
Woodmizer LT Super 70 and LT35 sawmill, KD250 kiln, BMS 250 sharpener and setter

If you need a tool and don't buy it you will eventually have paid for the tool and not have it.

VERY TRUE

National debt = 28.827 Trillion
Using Pallets with $100 bills stacked 3 foot high = $100 Million
would make a road of pallets 187.5 miles long

5 trillion = a road 33.14 miles long

USA Fed tax Rev = 25.62 miles long

I think my math is correct ?
