Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 2-6-2016: International Sex Workers Day

Right … another day off … 

And … ?

Believe it or not, I’m off to Kidspace in Romford.

And (possibly) to see Top Cat, afterwards.

You can tell I’m doing with a certain nephew, can’t you … ?

I’m just hoping the film’s not a total bomb: it’s getting mixed reviews …


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: scoring five out of five in the process.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s themed questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How to, License and video … 

Q1) 2nd June is International Sex Workers Day.   It’s also known as International what day?
Q2) It marks the day in 1975, when protesting prostitutes occupied a church: in which French town?
Q3) The term, ‘sex worker,’ was coined by Carol Leigh: in which year of the 1970s?
Q4) The Scarlet Alliance is a sex workers organization: in which English speaking country?
Q5) Is prostitution legal in the UK?
Q6) The ‘Whitechapel Murders’ were a series of murders of prostitutes: in 19th Century London.   Five of those murders were — apparently — committed by which killer?

Q10) According to a Channel Four documentary, in 2014, Sheila Vogel-Coupe is (possibly) the world’s oldest sex worker.   How old was she at the time of the documentary?
Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers …
Q1) BOAC flight 777 was shot down over the Bay of Biscay: on 1st June, 1943.   Which noted actor was on that flight?
Q2) 1st June, 1974, saw an explosion at a chemical plant in Flixborough.   Plant and village are in which English county: North Lincolnshire, South Lincolnshire or West Mersea?

Q5) Finally … Journal, Emergency Medicine, outlined the Heimlich Maneuver for the first time: on 1st June, 1974.   Who — in 2016 — has famously performed the maneuver?
A5) 96 year old Dr Henry Heimlich.   (Wikipedia says it’s the second time he’s performed the maneuver: although I trust the BBC’s report, which says it’s the first time he’s done it.)
I’ll leave you with this thought …
“The only way to prevent prostitution altogether would be to imprison one half of the human race.”  

Isobel Paterson.
And an appropriate tune or three … 

Enjoy your day …

Not sure if I have or not, actually.

1. Whores'
2. Lyon
3. 1978
4. Australia
5. it depends; according to Wikipedia, having sex for money is legal (with the exception of Northern Island), but several related activities are illegal:
6. Jack the Ripper
7. trafficking
8. crawling
9. brothel
10. 85

That reminds me. I came up with this wild idea for a story involving Jack the Ripper and time travel. Not like the movie "Time After Time", if you've ever seen that. It's a really great flick, so you should. Anyway, maybe someday I'll actually write the thing! :)
