G u a r a n t e e d   t o   R o l l  Y o u r   E y e s It was many years ago since the embarrassing day when a young woman, with a baby in her arms, entered his butcher shop and confronted him with the news that the baby was his and asked what was he going to do about it? Finally he offered to provide her with free meat until the boy was 16. She agreed.
He had been counting the years off on his calendar, and one day the teenager, who had been collecting the meat each week, came into the shop and said, “I’ll be 16 tomorrow.”
“I know,” said the butcher with a smile, “I’ve been counting too, tell your mother, when you take this parcel of meat home, that it is the last free meat she’ll get, and watch the expression on her face.”
When the boy arrived home he told his mother. The woman nodded and said, “Son, go back to the butcher and tell him I have also had free bread, free milk, and free groceries for the last 16 years and watch the expression on his face!”  😱

Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ”    “Can we open up the window, professor? It’s hot in here.”  “Your comfort comes second to my ability to hear my own voice.” 

Answer:  A Beautiful MindThis movie tells the true story of brilliant math prodigy John Nash, Jr. (Russell Crowe) and how he overcame years of suffering from schizophrenia to win a Nobel Prize. In this scene at his job teaching a college class at MIT, he has shut the classroom windows to cut down on the noise from a construction crew just outside his building. It’s a hot day and one of his students asks line one. Nash replies with line two. My favorite line from this movie is from his Nobel Prize acceptance speech, when he looks at his wife Alicia (Jennifer Connelly) in the audience and says, “You are the reason I am. You are all my reasons.” In the 2002 Academy Awards “A Beautiful Mind” won four Oscars, including Best Picture. Jennifer Connelly won an Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role and Ron Howard won an Oscar for Best Director. Russell Crowe was nominated for Best Actor (but lost to Denzel Washington in “Training Day”). Strictly speaking, there is no Nobel Prize in mathematics. The prize Nash won was in economics (although that category was not created in Alfred Nobel’s will and was added in 1969).

Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???? “I want to say one word to you. Just one word.”  “Yes, sir.”

Wednesday’s Quizzler is….​ The wind eased itself gently through Captain Sheba’s hair as he pressed his eye against his spy glass. “Land! At last we are rich!” he shouted to his crew members. They anchored not very far away from the strange little island, rowed toward the shore and arrived safely. “Brethren, we’ve found the island. From the information we have so far, the treasure is hidden under one of these colored rocks on the shore and the rest of the rocks have a poisonous gas trapped beneath them. Alas, I can’t afford to lose any of my crew members. If we could only decode the last part of these writings, we would know which rock the treasure is under. I will give ten percent of the find to anyone who is able to decode this last message!”

At the end of your power
At the beginning of eternity
Blessed is he who finds me
He who still exists after uncovering me
To enjoy my riches forever
My last is in mud somewhere wherever

That’s all the writings say. There are four rocks. They are blue, red, white, and black respectively. Which one has the treasure hidden under it?

Answer:  The Red rock!At the end of power is R.
At the beginning of eternity is E.My last is in mud somewhere, so it has to be D.
