Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.

What Did Christopher Lee Do Before LOTR?

Most people know Sir Christopher Lee as the actor who played Saruman, but this was hardly his first powerful rose. He starred in a series of Dracula films and, before that, fought in WWII for Finland (against the Soviets) and for the British (against the Nazis). After the war ended, Christopher Lee, the great actor that he was, went undercover for the Special Forces, hunting escaped Nazis. This explains an exchange he had with Peter Jackson. When Saruman gets stabbed in the back, Jackson asked him to yell in pain. Lee informed Jackson that when you stab someone in the back, you pierce their lungs, meaning they cannot scream. When asked how he personally knew that, Lee said: "Let's just say I was in the Special Forces and leave it at that."
