how much did a snow white billboard go for?

A 1937 Snow White billboard was up for auction.
According to the Dallas-based auction house Heritage Auctions, who sold the billboard on Saturday said that they aren’t going to release the name.
The winning bid was $10,755. This is a rather large billboard with a total area of 180 square feet. The billboard has a photo of Snow White wearing her classic outfit.

Worryed about Godzilla? the U.S has a plan.

If your worryed about Godzilla attacking you needn’t concern yourself with that. The US Airforce has a plan; according to the Smithsonian’s Air and Space magazine, Master Sgt. Jason Edwards of Kadena Air Base declares that the Air Force would release 4,000 Segways and slingshots and would need help from certain people. Well I could go with Chuck Norris, but that would be the obvious one, Edwards said. As I understand it, the Power Rangers are probably a good choice in this type of scenario…Bruce Lee, The Incredible Hulk – the CGI one, not the Lou Ferrigno one – and George W. Bush. There are more than 50 F-15 fighter jets available at Kadena, so those planes would likely be utilized as well. Nice to know that they have a plan.
Oh yeah I almost forgot, the movie called “Godzilla” will be coming out on May 16.
