    I got really board. When Van Gogh was alive 400 francs was a lot of money. About $10,500 francs.
    Thank you Ralph.

    Your Fact of the Day for today, June 17th...

    When Superman debuted in 1938, he actually couldn’t fly, he could only jump (pretty specifically) 1/8 of a mile, hence “leap tall buildings in a single bound.” He didn’t gain the ability to fly in the comics until 1941, and on his radio show a year previous.
