say two words every seven years. After the first seven years, the elders

and send him away. Seven more years pass. They bring him back in and
ask for his two words. He clears his throats and says, “Bad food.”

Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“A wizard is never late, Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.”
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring!
In the events leading up to this scene, the Dark Lord Sauron long ago forged a Ring of Power to control all the peoples and creatures of Middle Earth. This ring fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins (Ian Holm), a Hobbit from The Shire, who later bequeathed the ring to his young nephew Frodo (Elijah Wood). In this scene the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) arrives in The Shire for Bilbo Baggins’ birthday party and Frodo says line one on seeing him arrive in a horse-drawn cart. Gandalf wisely replies with line two. When Gandalf learns the ring is in fact the One Ring of the Dark Lord Sauron, he realizes it must be destroyed by carrying it to Mount Doom, the evil place of its birth, by casting it into the eternal fires that forged it. In the 2002 Academy Awards “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” won four Oscars. It was also nominated in nine other categories, including Best Picture (but lost to “A Beautiful Mind”). All three “The Lord of the Rings” movies (“The Fellowship of the Ring” in 2001, “The Two Towers” in 2002, and “The Return of the King” in 2003) were filmed simultaneously. The back-to-back shoot lasted 274 days. This is a risky way to film a trilogy, but it has the big advantages of having the same actors portray the same characters in all three movies and avoids contract negotiation problems.

Wednesday’s Quizzler is….
A science teacher told his after school class, “Whoever can get this egg into this smaller glass bottle will win no homework for a week! The rules are: the egg has to go into the bottle in one piece, and you can’t break the bottle. You can also use anything in the science lab. So, do we have any volunteers?”
A boy raised his hand and the teacher pointed at him. The boy took the egg and looked around the science lab for the things he could use. He saw some writing paper, a pack of matches, some vinegar, a sink, and the glass bottle. By the end of the after school class, the boy had gotten the egg into the smaller bottle.
How did he do it?
Answer: First, soak the egg in the vinegar which softens the shell without compromising the egg. Next, take some of the writing paper and shred it into pieces. Take the shredded pieces and put them into the glass bottle. Take a match and light a fire inside the bottle with the shredded paper. After, take the vinegar-soaked egg and put it on the top of the bottle so no oxygen can get into the bottle. The fire can’t live without any oxygen so it will try to suck oxygen from the entrance which the egg is blocking. When the fire does this, the fire becomes like a vacuum. So, basically, the fire sucks the egg into the bottle to try to get the oxygen. After a short while, the shell will reharden and that’s how the egg got into the bottle.
