While doing a search of the forums I stumbled across what may be my favorite post.

Those of you who got the Portfolio for under $1,000 must have a bunch of $$ invested in Logos already. Bless you.

 

God bless the wives and children for eating beans and ramen noodles for so long. Person Right Hug

  Beans are king's food to me! I am never tired of them.

If you eat beans, you'd never be allowed into the company of the Pythagoreans, whose rule included "abstain from beans"

There is some question as to why Pythagoras disfavored the innocent legume. Some think it was because it causes flatulence, which could be a problem when living in community or could disturb one's sleep and peaceful mental state. Others had other interesting explanations. It makes for an amusing study, and one source I found even said this was erroneous, Pythagoras actually loved beans.

When I'm downtown and have nothing with me I eat beans from the store, and at home I eat sauerkraut and turkey or ecological minced beef.
