    “McDonald’s invented the #franchise, right?”
    “No, no, it was Isaac Singer and his sewing machine!”
    Actually folks, according to this intriguing video it was Martha Matilda
    Harper, a savvy maid who put together a massive chain of beauty salons at a
    time when only 17% of the work force were women.

    It is D-BAT, not D-Back… D-BAT is a franchise for softball and baseball
    practice facilities. And why are you blaming her? The narrator clearly said
    D-BAT as well, and I doubt he’s basing his script off of her drawings. But
    good effort.

    education really should be free. that said, if education was free, and gave
    you a student allowance, it could be easily exploited. i suppose if you
    have it set so your first university level education is free, plus
    allowance. but if you fail miserably, you get kicked out (harsh, but fair i
    would say. first test or 2 wouldnt be an insta kick out though. that would
    be a bit harsh) if you want to try again, you need to pay, or if you just
    want to do a second degree. yeah, that would be decent.
