Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “Coffee makes me nervous when I drink it. Mmm.”?
Answer: Sling Blade!
The 1996 hit “Sling Blade” was a surprise hit and helped make a star out of actor/director Billy Bob Thornton. Thornton’s character, Karl Childers, is a mentally impaired, middle-aged man who had been held in a psychiatric hospital since early adolescence, after he killed his mother and her boyfriend. The movie focuses on his friendship with a 12 year old boy named Frank. He is sitting with Linda, Franks mother, when she offers him some coffee that she is fixing to brew. Karl likes everything to be calm and the caffeine in coffee makes him uneasy. This award winning movie attempted to show life in a small southern American town and included all the prejudices and simple pleasures of living in this area.

Wednesday’s Quizzler is….
A duke was hunting in the forest with his men-at-arms and servants when he came across a tree. Upon it, archery targets were painted and smack in the middle of each was an arrow. “Who is this incredibly fine archer?” cried the duke. “I must find him!”
After continuing through the forest for a few miles he came across a small boy carrying a bow and arrow. Eventually the boy admitted that it was he who shot the arrows plumb in the center of all the targets. “You didn’t just walk up to the targets and hammer the arrows into the middle, did you?” asked the duke worriedly. “No my lord. I shot them from a hundred paces. I swear it by all that I hold
holy.” “That is truly astonishing,” said the duke. “I hereby admit you into my service.”
The boy thanked him profusely. “But I must ask one favor in return,” the duke continued. “You must tell me how you came to be such an outstanding shot.”
How’d he get to be such a good shot?
Answer: The boy shot the arrow, THEN painted the circle around it.
Thursday’s Quizzler is…….
You awake inside a small transparent capsule sitting on the surface of Venus. From a small speaker you hear a voice that says, “We will leave you here either for a day or a year. If you choose to stay a day, we will give you $1 million. If you choose to stay a year, we will give you $2 million. Either way, you will have sufficient food and water. We will make sure the temperature is a constant 70 degrees Fahrenheit. We will also supply cable TV.”
What is your choice? (Don’t let money decide your answer).
