Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 9th June 2018.

9th June, 2018.

Yes: I’m officially as tired as a tired bloke, tiredly yawning on Twitter: and here’s hoping THAT gets retweeted about a bit … !

I wouldn’t mind knowing how many people yawn as a result … !

Which reminds me … apparently, we don’t do contagious yawning if we have a form of schizophrenia.   Or autism.

But DO, if we are a human who doesn’t have those conditions … 

Or we’re a chimp … 

Amazing what getting distracted at this time of the morning can do for you … 


Let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Olga* and Debbi† putting in their answers: with both 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) 9th June, 2017, saw the death of actor Adam West.   Which caped crusader was he famous for playing … ?
Q2) The first broadcasts from the UK’s House of commons were made on 9th June, 1975.   Vis what: radio, television or internet?
Q3) A coup took place on 9th June, 411 BC.   In which Greek city state?
Q4) 9th June, 1970, saw King Hussein avoid an assassin’s bullet.   King Hussein was King Hussein of where?
Q5) The International Council on Archives was founded on 9th June.   9th June of which year?
Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers … 

Q1) 8th June is World Oceans Day.   What’s the world’s largest ocean?
A1) The Pacific.
Q2) Francesca Capaldi was born on 8th June, 2004.   She appears as Chloe James in which Disney Channel series? 
Q3) Which George Orwell novel was first published: on 8th June, 1949?
Q4) Margaret Bondfield was named Minister for Labour on 8th June, 1929.   She was the first female member of which country’s Cabinet?
A4) The UK.
Q5) Finally … ?   The Prophet, Muhammed, died on 8th June, 632.   In which city … ?
A5) Medina.
Here’s a thought …
“Eighty percent of married men cheat in America. The rest cheat in Europe.”
Jackie Mason, born June 9, 1931.
And a song …

Today’s questions will be answered in tomorrow’s Teaser.

Have a good day.

*        Hmmm … Wish someone had uploaded that to YouTube: the only version I could findperformed in Barcelona was by the chap in the video … sort of a Cajun Samba’d version.   (Up it’s sleeve?   Well, yeah, buying the football came out of nowhere …)

†        You know, I don’t even know if that would get a mention, over here, Debbi.   Despite the fact we’ve a lot less TV providers than the US, we’ve still got plenty.   (There’s two other providers showing the Premier League games …).  That’s before you look at  illegal streaming!   (A few pubs got done for that.).  I can’t help but think this is a good thing … as long as Amazon keeps the prices down …

Q1) Batman
Q2) Radio
Q3) Athens
Q4) Jordan
Q5) 1948
I didn't notice if anybody was actually recording it (the performers weren't for sure, but they were quite busy). I'll keep it in mind in case I come across them again. I am sure they have plenty of things planned. Mind you, the only way to make sure these kinds of deals work must be to play with the cards very close to one's chest). I hope the day is not too tiring. Take care!

Sure low prices are nice. Just ask Wal-Mart! :)

My concern is more about consolidation. There's this little thing called monopoly and anti-trust law that's supposed to keep too much market power from being held by one company. Or person! Ahem! :)

1. Batman
2. radio
3. Athens
4. Jordan
5. 1948
