Interesting history aside, in our modern world there is a disease called
Munchausen Syndrome, which is basically self-induced sickness and injuries
to get attention.

There is also another form call Munchausen by Proxy, in which someone
inflicts injuries and illness on others, usually children, to gain vicarious

Just thought you should be aware of the modern associations of that name.

> Wow, that's cool. I thought it was at least inspired by a real person, but
I wouldn't have sworn to it. Thanks for the short history lesson, it was
very interesting. I've loved the movie since I was much younger... Doesn't
seem like that old of a movie, but it MUST be... I'm not that young anymore!
It has to be roughly 15 years old, isn't it? I'll have to try to remember to
look at it when I get home tonight.
