World's Most Valuable Comic Book Goes To Auction


Action Comics #1 is the comic book in which superman, the very first superhero, makes his very first appearance. It's an extremely rare and valuable comic book, and one of the estimated 100 existing copies is going on auction starting today.

The unidentified seller bought the comic back in 1958 for only 35 cents and has held onto it for 58 years.
Bidding started at only $1, but as of this writing the bidding is up to over $90,000. The auction will continue for 2 weeks, and according to experts could go over $400,000.

It turns out that the rule you've heard repeatedly about drinking 8 glasses of water every day is nothing more than an urban myth.

Sandy Szwarc over at the Junkfood Science blog has a very informative and well written post on everything you would want to know on the subject: Wellness water — the 8x8 myth.

I knew there was something wrong with forcing yourself to drink that much extra water. The human body is a finely tuned mechanism. You will naturally become thirsty when you need water, and not be thirsty when you have enough water in your system.
