Oh my God....

the length I go through to blog! Some medicine specialists would like to write a case record of my insanity, I am quite sure. At the moment I am sitting on the floor in a cold room- my fingers freezing- because I found a tiny signal in this huge house of ours. Granted it takes five minutes to load up a page, but once I see my common blog-gound I am happy.
So I kinda decided to make my Thursday Brain-Teaser post and hey, it might only take and hour and a half to publish it :) Makes me feel like I earned it, when it finally appears!

"He declared his reign, as leader of Japan would be one of “enlightened peace”. However, during his rule Japan warred with China and joined the Axis powers for World War II. After the Japanese surrendered, he made the historic announcement that he was not divine, as all other emperors had said, and gave the go ahead on a new constitution."

If you think you got it, go to the comment section and HINT!!! at the answer. Therby leaving clues for fellow neuron destroyers to vernture a guess as well.
Have fun with it. I will try with my wavelength-challenged internet connection to guide you along your quest of knowledge!

And all the trouble you went to, posting this, was worth it:) I really should know this one, but...can't remember....

At 01:04, Blogger Tim Rice said...

I once knew this. Bet I could find the answer at the library without the help of the Internet. But I'll wait to see what others come up with.

Hope your Internet problems get resolved soon.

I think, though I'm not positive, this ruler's name is partially akin to hero in sound?

Sorry about your internet connection woes. :( Maybe Icelandic Mom can knit you some mittens with the fingertips open until you can get a proper connection.

At 03:33, Blogger Doug said...

Honestly, Monika, it seems like the least you can do for us.

Sar's right and his Son, the current emperor's name is the same except it's Aki...

YAY!! Minka is BACK!
Yay yay!
I think I know, but the hint I could generate has been hinted.

YAY! Minka'a back,
Minka's back!!

Actonbell, you can´t remember everything! Oh, I just read a book...I think you would love. Will mention it over at paradise Alley! A must read!

Tim, funny you should mention this. Man in overalls appeared half an hour ago. He is checking teh phone lins and stuff...everybody wish me Good Luck!

Sar, very well done! You got it!
And I am sure Mom would knit something like that if she were asked. I myself am a fair knitter too!

Doug, Yes! Aki is the first part of the current emperors name. The second part is the as his fathers....the guy we are looking for!

Logo, we are just happy to have you. Hint or not! Happy Half-Nakid Thursday to you!

This is very hard! Us Americans are never taught anything beyond our own history in school, my ignorance in this is sticking out embarassingly :)

Do I hear a Hiro?

At 15:12, Blogger cube said...

BTW you aren't the only blogging mad person...bwa ha ha ha.

At 15:36, Blogger Mo'a said...

I know this one.....then again no wonder.....I saw a movie the other day....but cannot remember the name of the movie....well no one is perfect :)

At 16:23, Blogger Minka said...

aisha, all will be revealed in time and than you can bring it up at the next diner conversation and look really wordly :)

cube, I hear you. And Hiro you hear!

Móa, there is a movie about him? I would love to know the title, if you can find it out!

At 17:14, Blogger Doug said...

That was my hint, Monika. You know how respectful I am of your rules.

So glad you're back.

At 19:00, Blogger Minka said...

I know that was you hint, you sweet thing. I just felt the need to make it clearer for the people not in the know!
Didn´t wanna step on your point though!

At 19:49, Blogger Mo'a said...

The movie is not about him, about Japan's invasion of China....I am going to check it out and see if I can find it on, On Demand. My, my what medications will do to the mind....thankfully I don't need any at the moment. I just grin a bear it and think of Dancing in July :)
Perhaps one of you brilliant subjects know about this movie??? Anyone :^0 anyone :^0

At 22:34, Blogger Doug said...

Thanks, my point is fragile and the brain soft beneath it.

At 04:03, Blogger Sar said...

I was right! Woohoo! I feel so smart.

Tell that man in the overalls to fix your life support. Or is it ours? Either way it's quentessential your connection be restored pronto! Bat your eyelashes if you must, sistah!

At 04:04, Blogger Sar said...

And I'm sorry I momentarily forgot you were a crafty knitter. That's something I did actually know about you.

At 05:57, Blogger Doug said...

Hase, hase

At 09:59, Blogger Minka said...

Móa, seems like they don´t know either :) And you will dance!
That knee will never know what hit it!

Doug, your brain is extraordinary and your points soemtimes right down sacrcastic. A very good blend, my friend!

Sar, it seems to work for the moment and sometimes...when I am really pissed...eyelashes just don´t cut it anymore.

Doug, Haeschen, Haeschen to you too!

Answer: Hirohito

"Hirohito (April 29, 1901 – January 7, 1989) was the 124th Emperor of Japan according to the traditional order of succession, reigning from 1926 to 1989. Since his death he has been known as Emperor Sh?wa (Sh?wa Tenn?) in Japan, although he is widely referred to as Hirohito, or Emperor Hirohito. His reign was the longest of any historical Japanese emperor, and oversaw many significant changes to Japanese society." source:Wikepedia

At 15:29, Blogger birdwoman said...

au contraire, aisha. We Americans are taught plenty at schools, but most of us don't heed our lessons...

that being said, I did know Hirohito. One more brain cell that could be used for something useful... like my son's birthday... instead is focused on remembering things that I could look up easily.
