As a freelance writer, I’m not exactly raking in the dough. And that’s fine, except if I want to be Batman and I kinda do (nixing the whole dead family thing, of course). Because as I found out yesterday (while I was doing some online banking, oddly enough), it’s ridiculously expensive to walk a mile in the Caped Crusader’s “fictional” custom Kevlar boots. Check out this info graphic (via thisblogrules.com) that breaks down all Bruce Wayne’s expenses. By the way, Alfred does pretty well for himself. Maybe there’s something to this whole being a butler thing?
Oh, and on a side note, the pants that Mark Hamill wore while playing Luke Skywalker in “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope” are up for sale. They’re expected to go for something between $70,000 – $100,000. I really hope they were washed at some point, because they don’t like they’ve seen a washing machine since the ’70s. Actually, would washing them decrease the value? Weird stuff.
