I guess theoretically you could call on them for father of America he's commonly called the the father of them of our country to watch isn't for a father and his first father.

Saturn V or what's the difference that's like John Anderson is in the year 66358. Whatever. They want and good they want on the became. Yeah I want to be they want to be king this Dexter says that there was some snake oil salesman. Who tried to convince Martha Washington. That he could resurrect George. And so they were going to add some kind of chemical or something who is. To Islam you see any knowledge. Of that anywhere on the Google machine and you and I. I would be an amazing thing of death or true. Docked him a daughter or your big Mac community in the snake oil salesman's. You know we show up in terms in the middle of nowhere with the elixir. Of course now. And his day there was a. Friend of Georgia's doctor William Orton he trained at the best medical schools in Europe and after Washington died in 1799. He came up with the idea. Two. Revive him. Generation it's. Just bring him back because. He was such good friends with George Washington and he was so traumatized by is apt. I guess because it was so cold in Washington dyed his body was essentially frozen and Carrara. His doctor Thornton's proposal was Hugh saw George in cold water late in the blanket. Then get him warmed. Then give him this potion and open a passage to his lungs by which she could pre I suggest that the same. Thing for LB arrives at the correct at the corn hole tournament as a way to try to revive him. Efforts and that'll the drone. Sorry guys suggested that we trying to thaw him out and try to bring them back to life. That's. Notes the I rights. The last time I don't know if this is true anonymous take this techsters word on. The last time that the liberty bell was wrong. Was for George Washington's birthday while up is that when appropriate are and it probably well it cracked I mean yeah they're crown. An Achilles. I think it was funny that. People were saying that they had no idea that 76ers got their name from 1776. Yesterday. Meanwhile they ring the liberty bell before every second he's sixers game and I though. Old independents bell rang its last clear note. In February of 1846. And honor the birthday of Washington now hangs in the great cities people Iraq verbally cracked and dom. That's a quote I believe. Finally texture is LB dropped. Not at all here when we're what you did this hill worked out of northern Saskatchewan and I.
