Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - AT YOUR LEISURE -

1. Wil­helm II was the fi­nal ruler of both the Ger­man Em­pire and the Prus­sian King­dom, con­se­quently the last per­son to hold this ti­tle un­til World War I ended and he took a hard roll exit to the Nether­lands.

2. On the day Ger­many signs an armistice agree­ment, this Cen­tral Euro­pean na­tion re­gains its in­de­pen­dence af­ter en­dur­ing 123 years of par­ti­tions by Rus­sia, Prus­sia, and Aus­tria.

3. This very tra­di­tional holy day, known by some ob­servers as the Feast of Trum­pets, ne­ces­si­tates 100 blows through a hol­lowed out ram’s horn known as a sho­far.

4. Here we dial 911. In this small but tall coun­try whose flag loosely re­sem­bles two wings, they dial 100.

5. The Hun­dred Years War be­gan when English King Ed­ward III re­fused homage to the King of this coun­try.

6. John Malkovich wasn’t ex­pect­ing to get hit in the head with a beer can by some drive-by ex­tra who yelled “Hey Malkovich, head’s up!” in this movie.

7. Ge­orge C. Scott tirades un­hinged about pend­ing nu­clear war, then ac­ci­den­tally trips, hits the floor, rolls over, pops back up and con­tin­ues his un­hinged rant with­out miss­ing a beat.

8. Tommy Lee Jones for­got his line so blurted out “I don’t care,” know­ing that a U.S. Mar­shall wouldn’t con­cern him­self an es­caped con­vict’s wrong­ful con­vic­tion.
