Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 3-8-2016

Hmmm … 

I THINK that went well.

Possibly … 

JUST so you know?   I had an interview, yesterday.

Which seemed to go well enough.

Well enough for me to get the distinct impression I’m going to get a second interview.

Which frankly?

Sounds hopeful.

We’ll have to see, won’t we?


But let’s get a move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Mr Strict 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) Which country’s branch of the Anglican Church appointed an openly gay bishop: on 3rd August, 2003?
Q2) Tandy Corporation announced its TRS-80 range of computers.   The processor it used was a what: 8-bit, 16-bit or 32-bit processor?
Q3) The BAA and the NBL completed their merger, to become the NBA:  on 1949.   Which very American sport do — or did — the three groups govern?
Q4) Niger gained its independence: on 3rd August, 1960.   From which European country?
Q5) Finally … which European country declared itself neutral, during World War 1: on 3rd August, 1914?
Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers …
Q1) 2nd August, 1932, saw Carl D. Anderson discovery the positron: the antimatter version of which particle?
A1) The electron.
Q2) Which of the two particles has an electrical charge of -1?
A2) The electron.
Q3) Who first theorized about the positron, in 1928: Paul Dirac, Albert Einstein or Nils Bohr?
Q4) What’s the antimatter version of the proton?
A4) The antiproton.
Q5) Finally … who invented (fictional) robots with positronic brains?
I’ll leave you with this thought …
“I’m a pilgrim trying to win my freedom and serve as best I can in the time I have, with this gift I’ve been given.”
Martin Sheen, born 3rd August, 1940.
And this tune … 

Have a good day!

*        I HOPE so, Debbi!   I think I’m in with a chance of a second interview!   (Oh, the thought occurs: I can’t, off the top of my head, think of any South African snooker players.   Strange thought for this time of the morning!)

Q1) United States (New Hampshire)
Q2) 8-bit
Q3) Basketball
Q4) France
Q5) Romania
I hope the second interview comes true, Paul. That job they were going to contact me about on Monday, well, they never did. Considering I hadn't even applied for the job I guess it's not surprising, but it was a lot of running around for nothing.
Be well.

Glad to hear it's looking up for a second interview! :) What was the job again. I know it involves sales, which I'm sure you'd excel at. What with your outgoing personality and all! :)
