“Now I have a machine gun. Ho-ho-ho.”

From: Die Hard

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: John McClaine through Hans Gruber

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the “Christmas” movie, Die Hard. The film was a surprise hit and launched Bruce Willis into stardom.

The quote comes from the middle of the film after Hans Gruber (played by the late Alan Rickman) and his group had taken over the Nakatomi building. John McClaine had just killed Tony Vreski after a long, brutal fight but he managed to come out on top. McClaine decides to send a message to Hans Gruber by using the elevator to send Tony’s body… but he does leave a not so subtle message about the new armament he now has…

Geek wisdom:  Picking out a gift for someone shouldn’t really be that hard. Everyone wants something different for Christmas. Sometimes, it may be just something they want. Sometimes, it may be something they need. In order to figure it out, you have to understand that person’s situation and know what they would appreciate. All you have to do is pay attention to that person and notice these things.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
