Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 7-2-2017

Bloody hell, what happened then?

Happily, I’m working.

And thoroughly enjoying it.

OK, the commute’s a drag: especially with the Crossrail work over the weekend.

But last night, at work?

Well, Monday’s usually quite quiet.

What happened, last night?

Was that Monday wanted ballistic.

I don’t think it stopped until after I went home!


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Trevor*, Mr Strict†, Olga‡ and Debbi^ putting in their answers: with all four scoring five out of five.

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

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

Q1) Disney’s second full length animated movie premiered on 7th February.   Of which year?
Q2) What WAS the film?
Q3) 7th February, 1962, saw the USA ban imports from which country: the USSR, China or Cuba?
Q4) Mississippi certified the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution: on 7th February, 2013.   This finally meant WHAT was abolished in the US?
Q5) Finally … The Maastrict treaty was signed: on 7th February, 1992.   What did the treaty formalize: the African Union, the European Union or the UN Atomic Energy Commission?
Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers … 

Q1) 6th February, 2016, saw an earthquake hit Southern where: Taiwan, the Solomon Isles or the Philippines?
A1) Taiwan.
Q2) 6th February, 2013, saw an earthquake hit where: Taiwan, the Solomon Isles or the Philippines?
A2) The Solomon Isles.
Q3) 6th February, 2012, saw an earthquake hit central where: Taiwan, the Solomon Isles or the Philippines?
Q4) 6th February, 1983, saw the ‘Butcher of Lyon,’ finally face trial.   The nickname was given to which Nazi war criminal?
Q5) Finally … Tony Blair became the Labour Party’s longest serving Prime Minister: on 6th February, 2005.   Who became Britain’s youngest PM of the 20th Century: in 1997?
A5) It’s that man again: Tony Blair.
I’ll leave you with this thought …
“But the real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder, February 7, 1867 – February 10, 1957.

And a bit of soul … 

Have a good day … !

*        I seem to recall, Trevor§, that the last one I heard of — wherever it was in the UK — was linked to fracking: it was the first time I’d heard of the process.

†        Morning, Mr S§!   Thanking you for looking in.   (Has anyone mention Earthquakes or David Mamet, yet?)

‡        Yes, that’s what I thought when I was writing yesterday’s questions, Olga§.   All those earthquakes on the same day were — in one sense — a godsend.   I’d probably fell differently is one happened around here!   (You know, Glengary Glen Ross is the one Mamet play/fil I’ve heard of: not seen that, either!)

^        I have to admit, Debbi§, Glengary Glen Ross is the one Mamet film/play I HAVE heard of: I’ve not seen that one, either!   He sounds a bit … you know … prolific … !

§        Thanks for looking in, everyone: it‘s always nice to get a big audience!

1) 1940
2) Pinocchio
3) Cuba
Q4) Slavery (they are a bit slow… )
Q5) The European Union
Well, he's been writing for a long while and seems to be a hard-working guy. Used to teach acting (William H. Macy was one of his students and have remained close friends) and he worked quite a bit with Joe Mantegna at the beginning. I've seen Glengarry Glen Ross in theatre three times (in London, New York and Barcelona, it travels a fair bit and seems to follow me around. His new play was opening in Barcelona this month, but I don't think it will playing still when I go back, although I've also watched one of his plays in Paris. And one of my students stages 'Oleanna' when I was at Sussex. Anyway, I'll shut up) I hope today is quieter
