Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 8-11-2016: Elected (USA)

Blimey … 

It’s the proverbial Big Day: of the US general election.

One that — from what I’ve understood — is looking like a close run thing.

Personally … ?

I can’t help but think it’s going to be fifty/fifty.

And either way … ?

It’ll be interesting to see the result.


On other fronts … ?

On other fronts, can I ask you to suggest a horror film?

I’m hoping an old friend will be able to look in during my time off: to catch a movie with me.

Who knows WHERE that’ll end up: it’d be interesting to see if we can come up with something … !


But let’s move on.

Yesterday’s teaser saw Olga* and Debbi† putting in her answers: with both scoring five out of five.

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) 8th November 2016, sees the USA vote for its new President.   Name either of the two main candidates.
Q2) Which of the two is embroiled in a scandal about their emails?
Q3) Which is facing several serious sexual allegations?
Q4) The President is ultimately voted in by an electoral college.   How many electoral college votes will a candidate need, to be elected?
Q5) Finally … who — at the time of this year’s election — is the current President of the United States?
Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers …
Q1) 7th November, 1970, saw the birth of singer-songwriter, Neil Hannon.   Hannon was the frontman for which band?
A1) The Divine Comedy.
Q2) 7th November, 1989, saw ministers of a communist country resign en-mass.   WHICH communist country: East Germany, Poland or Bulgaria?
Q3) Who became the first First Lady elected as a Senator: on 7th November, 2000?
A3) Hilary Clinton.   (Sixteen years later … )
Q4) The London Gazette was first published: on 7th November, 1665.   As what?
A4) The Oxford Gazette.   (It’s still in circulation.)
Q5) Finally … WXYC made the first of what kind of broadcast on 7th November, 1994: internet TV, internet radio or an internet movie?
A5) Internet radio.   (Apparently?   Apparently, online or otherwise, the station plays zydeco.   Not QUITE sure what I make of zydeco … )
I’ll leave you with this thought …
“Democracy is so overrated.”
Frank Underwood, House of Cards Season One.
And these songs … 

Have a good day.

*        Any suggestions on the movie front, Olga … ?

†        Sounds about right, Debbi!   (Any ideas of a movie, Debbi?)

Q1) Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton
Q2) Clinton
Q3) Trump
Q4) 270
Q5) Obama
It's difficult to recommend when I don't know what you've watched. I enjoyed 'Don't Breathe' but not sure if it will be available (and it's scary rather than horror, horror). I also watched Crimson Peak that is very beautiful, although again perhaps not that horrific...
Probably the American elections are the scariest thing one can watch tonight.
