on their planes. And if you think that’s bad, Southwest just announced that their
new seats only recline forward.” -Jimmy Fallon

“Anybody here drink water but wish you could pay more for it? Well, good news, folks, because the next big startup craze in Silicon Valley is companies offering consumers the chance to get ‘off the water grid’ with something called ‘raw water,’ which is water that is unfiltered, untreated, and unsterilized.

hearing, so I mentioned it to my mother. “Things haven’t changed that much,”

Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ” 
“Hey, why am I Mr. Pink?”

Answer:   “Reservoir Dogs”
Quentin Tarantino’s 1992 violent film “Reservoir Dogs” is about six strangers who are hired by a mobster named Joe Cabot to pull off a diamond robbery. Before the crime is committed, in order to retain their anonymity, they are each given colors as names e.g., Quentin Tarantino as Mr. Brown and Steve Buscemi as Mr. Pink who asks “Hey, why am I Mr. Pink?”. When the robbery goes terribly wrong, they begin to suspect an undercover cop in their midst. Both the brutality of the criminals and the language is realistic and very graphic! The quote about ‘hamburgers’ is said by Jules Winnfield in another Tarantino movie, “Pulp Fiction” from 1994.

Thursday’s Quizzler is…….
Detective Mick Mace was called to the scene of a beach murder. Two uniformed officers were already there, piecing together the chain of events that lead to the victim’s death.

“Her name is Jina Lange,” the first officer tells Mace, “a 27 year old waitress from ‘Jake’s Palace.’ She was running from someone, but they got her, all right. Knocked her to the ground hard, gashing her head open, and wrapped a belt around her neck. Tried to strangle her to death, but she didn’t die when the perp thought she did. She must have crawled 20 feet or so, but she was going toward the water by mistake. When she realized this, she was probably fading in and out of consciousness, and knew she wasn’t going to make it. Looks like she wrote the word “help” in the sand with her finger, but it has been partially washed away by the approaching tide. See there? The h is half gone already, and the p is missing the stem. We took some pictures for record, though.”
Mick Mace looked down at the woman who lay dead, shuddering as he thought of what it must be like to die at someone else’s hand. What were her last thoughts? What did this woman have to say that someone didn’t want the world to hear?
Suddenly, more cops arrive, with three men in tow. One, they called Jersey, was throwing a fit, his loose pants practically down to his knees in the struggle. “I wasn’t with her! I bought her a drink, but she left without even saying thanks!” The other, older gentlemen, was the club owner. “Name’s Shelby, detective. She was a great lady. This is a tragedy, but I will do anything to help. I saw her leave the club with that guy right there, but that’s all I have.” He pointed to the third man. “Yeah, so? She left with me, but only for a sec, to get some smokes from my car. She came right back, honest!”

At that moment, Mace thinks of a very important clue, and knows exactly who is responsible for Jina’s death. What does he figure out?
