The Spruce Pinto

Tom is showing just how eccentric a disgustingly wealthy man can be in this alter ego as Howard Hughes. The reason I'm posting it (aside from it just being a funny picture) is because on this day in 1937, Hughes set a transcontinental airspeed record flying from Los Angeles to Newark.

Today is also the anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's birth in 1809. Not only is Daria shown reading Poe's The Telltale Heart in the episode "Gifted," but The Raven also inspired both The Cynic by Steve Mitchell and A Raven, Nothing More by Lew Richardson.

Finally, today is National Tin Can Day. Anyone got a can opener?
