HIGHLIGHTS: In Minnesota, a 34-year-old man bought an abandoned house for $10,100 to remodel and flip it. And when he busted into the walls, he found a copy of the most valuable comic book of ALL TIME . . . the 1938 comic with the first appearance of SUPERMAN. It's worth at least $2 MILLION in mint condition, and this one's in really bad shape. But the bidding is already over $135,000.
HIGHLIGHTS: According to a new survey by Hotwire, most Americans have never visited some of the country's most famous landmarks. 78% have never been to the Space Needle in Seattle . . . 73% have never been to Yellowstone National Park . . . and 70% have never been to the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. But more than HALF of us have been to the Las Vegas Strip.
HIGHLIGHTS: Check out just a few ways the average American's life has changed in the past 50 years: Only 3% of people can walk to work now, compared to 10% in 1960 . . . the average household watches about 67% more TV . . . 24% of young adults live with their parents, compared to 13% in 1960 . . . and men do more than twice as much housework as they did in 1965, but women still do far more.
HIGHLIGHTS: Forbes has released its annual list of the World's 100 Most Powerful Women. OPRAH is the highest-ranking celebrity on the list, at #13. Others include Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie, Sofia Vergara, Lady Gaga and Ellen DeGeneres.
