The man gives a nod of approval while shaking terribly. She comes back with a drink and he downs it quickly. Ten minutes later, the flight attendant sees the same man shaking and biting his nails. She brings him another drink which he swallows immediately.
A half hour later she returns to see that the man is shaking uncontrollably, and apparently crying. “My goodness,” the flight attendant says, “I’ve never seen someone so afraid to fly.”
“I’m not afraid of flying,” says the man sobbing loudly, “I’m trying to give up drinking.”😳

“Well, I may have to start minding what she reads from now on, won’t I, Mrs. Brown?”
In this scene, six first-class passengers on the passenger liner RMS Titanic are at a lunch table when the discussion turns to how the ship was named. When White Star Lines chairman J. Bruce Ismay (Jonathan Hyde) says he chose the name Titanic to convey the image of size and power, Rose Bukater (Kate Winslet) says, “Do you know of Dr. Freud, Mr. Ismay? His ideas about the male preoccupation with size might be of particular interest to you.” Molly Brown (Kathy Bates) and Thomas Andrews (Victor Garber) try to stifle a smile at that comment and her mother (Frances Fisher) looks aghast. When Rose excuses herself from the table, Molly says line one to Rose’s fiancé, Caledon ‘Cal’ Hockley (Billy Zane), and he replies with line two. The movie “Titanic” tells the true-life story of the luxurious White Star ocean liner RMS Titanic that sank in 1912 on its maiden voyage, told through the lives of two main fictional characters, Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose Bukater (played as a young woman by Kate Winslet and as an old woman by Gloria Stuart).

Once, Birbal was invited to Persia by the Persian king. He was honoured with celebrations in his honour and many presents and gifts were heaped on him.
After a few days of revelry and enjoyment, it was time to head back home. On the eve of his departure, a nobleman of Persia asked him how he would describe the king of Persia in comparison to his own king.
“Your king is the full moon,” said Birbal. “Whereas mine is like the quarter moon.”
The Persians were very happy with this answer and sent Birbal off with great pomp and gaiety.
But when Birbal got home, he found that Emperor Akbar was furious. It was obvious that information about his “praise” of the Persian king had preceded his own arrival.
“How could you belittle your own king?” demanded a furious Emperor Akbar. “You are a traitor!”
Birbal objected to this and said that he had, in fact, praised his own king! How did Birbal explain this to the king?
