“There are only three certainties in life; breathing, taxes, and death.”
Anthony “Tony” Boquet

However, in an effort to satisfy my craving for accuracy, I purpose a third certainty; the only sustaining involuntary function that maintains life; breathing. We know that Ben was a fan of debates and was also a very intelligent man. I think that if he and I could have reflected together on this comment, he would have agreed that I was correct in my addition. Man only needs three things for human life; Air, Water and Food. Of the three it is only air that is consumed involuntarily; thus there can be no life without the act of breathing.
