Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes… 
I was working in a scrap yard during summer vacation at
engineering university. I worked repairing construction

One afternoon, I was taking apart a piling hammer that had
some very large bolts holding it together. One of the nuts
had corroded on to the bolt; to free it I started heating
the nut with an oxyacetylene torch. As I was doing this,
one of the dimmest apprentices I have ever known came along.

He asked me what I was doing. I patiently explained that if
I heated the nut it would grow larger and release its grip
on the bolt so I could then remove it.

“So things get larger when they get hot, do they?” he asked.

“Yes,” I said, “that’s why days are longer in summer and
shorter in winter.”

There was a long pause, then his face cleared. “You know, I
always wondered about that,” he said.😳😎 

Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???
“I’m gonna eat your brains and gain your knowledge.”

Answer: Planet Terror!

Theatrically released as one of the two films in the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez double-feature offering, “Grindhouse”, “Planet Terror” was the first to be shown of the two. Directed by Robert Rodriguez and released in 2007, “Planet Terror” is about the release of a certain dangerous chemical known as DC2 into the atmosphere, resulting in the transformation of any exposed victims from bumbling Texan townsfolk into the living dead. Starring Rose McGowan, Freddy Rodriguez, Marley Shelton, Quentin Tarantino, Naveen Andrews, Bruce Willis, Michael Biehn, Fergie (of the Black Eyed Peas), one of the director’s sons (Rebel), and two of the director’s nieces as ‘The Crazy Babysitter Twins’, the film was the more action-packed of the two. Robert Rodriguez has also directed “Sin City” and “Spy Kids”. The quote in question was actually mentioned more than once in the movie. Although Dr. William Block mentions this line to his wife in the end of the movie, it is first mentioned by his son (Tony) earlier in the film, foreshadowing the events yet to come. Soon after saying the line, Tony and his father pray for “no dead bodies for daddy” while his mother, Dakota, plans to run away with her lover, after working the night shift with her husband in the local hospital. Of course, none of this goes according to plan.

Wednesday’s Quizzer is…….

Emperor Akbar once ruled over India. He was a wise and intelligent ruler; and he had in his court the Nine Gems, his nine advisors, who were each known for a particular skill. One of these Gems was Birbal, known for his wit and wisdom. The story below is one of the examples of his wit. Do you have it in you to find the answer?

One day, Emperor Akbar posed a question to Birbal. He asked him what Birbal would choose if he offered either justice or a gold coin.

“The gold coin,” said Birbal without hesitation.

On hearing this, Akbar was taken aback. “You would prefer a gold coin to justice?” he asked, not believing his own ears.

“Yes,” said Birbal.

The other courtiers were amazed by Birbal’s display of idiocy. They were full of glee that Birbal had finally managed himself to do what these courtiers had not been able to do for a long time – discredit Birbal in the emperor’s eyes!

“I would have been disappointed if this was the choice made even by my lowliest of servants,” continued the emperor. “But coming from you it’s not only disappointing, but shocking and sad. I did not know you were so debased!”

How did Birbal justify his answer to the enraged and hurt Emperor?
