RANDOM TIDS & BITS- Tues 12/05/17

Why is the person screaming in the famous painting “The Scream” by Edvard Munch?  It’s based on a moment after the Krakatoa volcano exploded in Indonesia in 1883, and it made the sky red as far away as Norway, where Munch lived.

“Space Invaders” made $2.7 billion in revenue as an arcade game . . . which is around $10 billion if you adjust for inflation.  That makes it the highest-grossing arcade game ever . . . just ahead of “Pac-Man”.

  “The Dark Knight” was the first Batman movie that didn’t have the word “Batman” in the title . . . or any bats in the movie.
