Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime...
But sometimes, you just gotta give the guy the friggin' fish.

The future has arrived

This must be a load off this guy's mind!

This was published in the Detroit Free Press newspaper on September 29, 1935:


One has to wonder, could this judge do math? We don't know how old he was, but if Mr. Hepper was only 20 at the time, he'd be 103 years old now! What's the likelihood he could have ever completed paying his debt to society?

On the other hand, according to the official US consumer price index, $1.00 in 1935 would be worth $18.40 today, making Mr. Hepper's $2.50 monthly payment worth $46.00 in today's money. In 1935, gas cost 10 cents per gallon, a loaf of bread went for 8 cents, and you could buy a new car for $625.00. I guess that $2.50 could have been considered a lot of money in 1935.
