Cool Hand Luke, 1967. The air in the prison is heavy with sweat, humidity, and boredom. Dragline, the “boss prisoner,” is bragging how his boy, Luke, can eat anything. After some blustering and arguing among the prisoners, Luke says, “I can eat 50 eggs.” They ask him: “Have you ever ett 50 eggs before?” Luke answers: “Nobody every ett 50 eggs before,” and we have a bet!
When asked why he said 50, and not something more manageable like 35, Luke says “it just seemed like a nice round number.”
I can walk 51(.5) miles.
