My wife cannot ride in a car without telling whoever is driving what to do, when to do it, etc. She is, bar none, the worst back seat driver in the world. I have long thought this, though she would deny it. She claimed she seldom, if ever made comments about my driving. I, of course, claimed the opposite. Now I have proof.
The other day we were headed for the mall and my daughter piped up, “Daddy, before you married Mommy, who told you how to drive?”
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? “During your infidelity with these creatures, did you even once taste of their blood?”
Answer: Bram Stoker’s Dracula! This adaptation of Dracula is probably the best ever made. Gary Oldman and Winona Ryder are amazing, and Keanu is hot (until he goes gray). Anthony Hopkins has a quirky accent, but what can you do.
Thursday Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “Come out, come out, wherever you are.”

A number of people have broken the sound barrier, either in a super-fast car, or in nice fancy planes. However, hundreds of years ago it was broken on horseback. How?
ANSWER: Many people who ride horses carry whips. They crack the whip while they ride the horse. When a whip is cracked, the tip travels faster than the speed of sound, which makes the loud snap. It actually creates a miniature sonic boom of sorts. The whip breaks the sound barrier, thus, it was broken on horseback.
