Thursday Brain Teasers


Walked home yesterday and saw this and I thought you guys might like it!

Anyways, most of my blogger buddies have a weekly thing going on their blogs. A particular day where they do something different from the usual ranting. I want to have that too. Yes, I am childish, didn´t you know that? I started to think about what I can do and that is fairly difficult if you have only two braincells to spare! In the end, I have decided that Thursday has no particular mention in those blogs, so I have decided to take it and make something of it. So, form now on...each Thursday...something is gonna happen. I haven´t thought it through yet, I might change my ideas along the way...but for now: let us get to it!

"His journey from prison to president was chronicled in his memoirs called Long Walk to Freedom. Imprisoned for 27 years on charges of treason, it was illegal to publish his works or his image. He shared the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize with South Africa’s former president for their work to end apartheid."

If you think you got it, go to the comment section and HINT! at the right answer to me.

So, a hint, huh?
Okay. He once said, "The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."

Yeap, that is him. He also said:
“It always seems impossible until its done.”

I think his wife published a book while he was in prison? And one of "america´s next supermodel" had not a clue what it was all about?
Mom

Yes mom, you are right. What was her name again? Kenya-that´s it. What a blonde inside a dark exterior! She gave the term imbasil new hights...

 
At 20:35, Blogger Doug said...

Wait, his wife isn't Winnie?

 
At 20:35, Blogger Doug said...

Correction, he remarried?

 
At 20:36, Blogger Doug said...

Oh, and the photo is breathtaking.

 
At 21:30, Blogger Minka said...

Doug, yes:wife´s name is Winnie and his middle name is Rolihlahla! I wonder who knew that!!!

 
At 22:51, Blogger Biene said...

What a relief! I wasn´t really shure. Going to bed, see you tommorrow!

 
At 22:53, Blogger Biene said...

OK. I got Kenya:))

 
At 01:40, Blogger Tan Lucy Pez said...

On blog I would call him Noslen Alednam Pez.

 
At 01:48, Blogger Minka said...

TLP, Wonder what flavour he would dispense!

 
At 03:51, Blogger Doug said...

TLP, that was funny. So, who's Kenya?

 
At 07:34, Blogger Minka said...

Kenya- besides a country- was a contestant in America´s Next Top Model3. She mad Mom and I burst out luaghing almost every single episode until she finally was voted out.

 
At 08:23, Blogger drogidy said...

His name was used in a comedy show where it was arranged into a funny anagram. (I can't remember what the anagram was.)

Anyway, just wanted to drop by and thank you for the kindly farewell on my blog. Best of luck to you too. :)

 
At 11:02, Blogger Minka said...

drogidy, thank you for swinging by! Sad youa re leaving us, but I understand your reasons! And I don´t know if his name was used in a comedy show...internation problem I think. But I am pretty sure you know the answer to teh quiz!

 
At 15:42, Blogger Sar said...

First, I love the photo. Please post more pictures from Iceland!

Second, I have to commend you, having everyone answer with hints is pretty clever, Monika. Okay, here's mine.

He's famous for this quote:

"We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right."

 
At 15:50, Blogger Minka said...

Sar, yes he said that. very well done!

 
At 22:34, Blogger Tan Lucy Pez said...

I don't think there is a chocolate Pez candy. But that's what he would dispense, if there were.

 
At 14:13, Blogger Mo'a said...

If you say the Icelandic word for almond real fast you have said his name.
I have always loved that church. I was having dinner at the Hotel Saga one evening and saw the church and Snaefeljokul out the same window......loved how the shapes mirrored each other. Your photo is beautiful, the colours remind me of winters spent in Iceland

 
At 17:43, Blogger AP3 said...

Great picture, Monika! This is a good Thursday game.

HINT: Um.... What TLP said.

 
At 23:56, Blogger dddragon said...

Beautiful photo! And all the hints are taken ...

Nelson mandela is of course the answer. Lookign forward to next Thursday!!! Thank you huys for playing...

 
At 01:56, Blogger Fred said...

I hate when I'm the last one to the party. It sounds like I missed a good one.

I love the picture; keep 'em coming!

 
At 10:15, Blogger Sponge Girl said...

Hello Monika, I'm just here to wish your new weekly feature good luck. Ciao!

 
At 18:06, Blogger Tom & Icy said...

That is really beautiful where you live. And we like your game. That is a good idea. Icy says you're welcome to her secret cabin any time! In our picture with Icy, the men are Ozzie Osbourne, Bush, and the secretary of defence. You were right about the girls. I knew who you were talking about in your quiz but couldn't think of his name and looked it up. That was fun. It keeps us on our toes.

 
At 20:02, Blogger Minka said...

Fred, Thank you and next THursday you´ll be among the first to hint at the right answer.
Sponge girl, Welcoime again and thank you for the good wishes. I loved your new thing as well :)
Tom and Icy, so it was Donal Rumsfell? Did not get that!!! I love the game too, and we all learn something!!! I did not know that his wife´s name was Winnie for one...
