Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 16-2-2017

*Yawn* … 

I think I can safely say I’m knackered.

Which will probably turn around … once I either get more sleep, or get more to eat … 

The good thing … ?

The good thing is that today is a day off.

I’ll be able to get some Teaser videos done, and maybe todd a coin.

After all … 

I’ve more episodes of Mr Robot to catch up with … 

Oh, and a copy of The Cabinet of Dr Caligari.

I’ll probably end up tossing a coin … 


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 questions, shall we?

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

Q1) Fidel Castro was sworn in: on 16th February, 1959.   As Cuban what: President, Prime Minister or Chief Justice?
Q2) Hezbollah was founded: on 16th February, 1985.   The group is based where: Lebanon, Israel or Syria?
Q3) The Kyoto Protocol came into force: on 16th February, 2005.   What is the Protocol trying to slow?
Q4) The US Army’s last MASH unit was decommissioned: on 16th February, 2006.   MASH stood for Mobile Army Surgical … what?
Q5) Finally … the US emergency phone number went into initial operation: on 16th February, 1968.   What IS that number?
Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers … 

Q1) Ferdinand 3rd became Holy Roman Emperor on 15th February, 1637.   Where was he also king of: Bohemia, Aragon and Castile or Scotland?
A1) Bohemia.
Q2) 15th February, 1921 saw Romania open a legation in Helsinki.   What was Romania, at the time: a republic, a kingdom or an empire?

Q4) ENIAC, the world’s first general purpose computer, was dedicated on 15th February, 1946.   Kay McNulty, Betty Jenning and Betty Snyder, were some of its first … what?
Q5) Finally … 15th February, 19472, saw British forces in Singapore surrender to whom: the Germans, Italians or Japanese?

I’ll leave you with this thought …
“Attention Is Energy. What you pay attention to you get more of.”
Stephen Gaskin, February 16, 1935 – July 1, 2014.
And this tune … 

Have a good day … 

*        Oh, don’t worry, Debbi, I don’t think any one could make it any worse!   :D   And I’ve quietly had one smug married woman tell me she wouldn’t say no to a card from me.    So there’s an upside, there … !   Blimey, didn’t know Humans had reached the US: Emily Berrington, as Niska?   Ist’ fantastic.   (If ever the Sapphire & Steel remake goes ahead, she’d be great as Steel.   No, Steel: gender hopping genre, sci-fi …)
