: I was browsing and found this at Someone is bound to ask this sooner or later, so here it is:

: "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch."
: A Libertarian Movement slogan
: -Robert A. Heinlein, The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, 1907

1907 read 1967.
BTW 1907 is the year when Heinlein was born.

"Oh, 'tanstaafl.' Means 'There ain't no such thing as a free lunch>' And isn't," I added, pointing to a FREE LUNCH sign across the room, "or these drinks would cost half as much." (The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress)
