Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A prospective juror in a Dallas District Court was surprised by the definition of voluntary
manslaughter given the panel: “An intentional killing that occurs while the defendant is
under the immediate influence of sudden passion arising from an adequate cause, such
as when a spouse’s mate is found in a ‘compromising position.'” “See, I have a problem
with that passion business,” responded the jury candidate. “During my first marriage, I
came in and found my husband in bed with my neighbor. All I did was divorce him.
I had no idea that I could have shot him.” She wasn’t selected for the jury. 😳
Fridays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?”
Answer: Star Wars!
This movie sees a galactic battle between the forces of a small group of resistance fighters and an evil empire. In this particular scene, the lines are spoken by Princess Leia to Luke Skywalker, who, in his disguise as one of the evil Emperor’s soldiers, has come to rescue her from the detention block on the Death Star where she has been incarcerated. Luke’s initial response on first seeing Leia and hearing these lines is a bemused expression, before he quickly gets down to the business of rescuing the feisty princess.
Monday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
“Go ahead, make my day.”
Friday’s Quizzler is….
A clock has 60 lines on it; one at each minute interval. Everyone knows that the hour and minute
hands point to the same line at 12:00. Can you figure out what time it is for these situations?
- The hour hand is exactly on one line, and the minute hand is exactly on the NEXT line.
- The hour hand is exactly on one line, and the minute hand is exactly on the PREVIOUS line.
Answer: 1. The time is 2:12.
- The time is 9:48.
The hour hand is exactly on a line every 12 minutes, so we only need to look at times ending in 00, 12, 24, 36, and 48.
The hands exactly overlap at 12:00. They are 5 lines apart at 11:00 and 1:00, and farther apart at other hours.
At times ending in 12, the hands are closest at 2:12, where they are 1 line apart.
At times ending in 24, the hands are closest at 4:24, where they are 2 lines apart.
At times ending in 36, the hands are closest at 7:36, where they are 2 lines apart.
At times ending in 48, the hands are closest at 9:48, where they are 1 line apart.
