Friday’s answers

Thursday’s questions were:

1. What are the missing words and who said this: “Never give in, never give in, …; ….; …. – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense”

2. It’s vaillance  in French, valentía in Spanish and  māia in Maori, what is it in English?

3. Who said: “Courage is resistence to fear -mastery of fear, not absence of fear.”?

4. How much household bleach do you add to a litre of water to purify it?

5. Which is Simon Power’s electorate?

Points for answers have been complicated by the bleach question but my source was: http://www.foodsafety.govt.nz/elibrary/industry/food-safety-in-the-canterbury-earthquake.htm

David got two right and a bonus for the warning about bleach going off.

JC got 1 and a near enough for Churchill and two of three nevers.

Bearhunter got 3 1/2.

Rob got three and a bonus for sounding erodite by name dropping Leonard Cheshire.

Andrei got four right which wins him an electronic box of chocolates.

Cadwallader got two right, a good guess for the bleach and a bonus for wit.

Gravedodger got two right and a bonus for humour.

Adam got two, 1/2 (you got the nevers but left out Churchill) – and  a bonus for knowing bleach would be altered by age and strength.

Answers follow the break:

1. Never; never; never. Winston Churchill.

2. Courage.

3. Mark Twain.

4.  Five drops – and leave it for 30 minutes before drinking.

5. Rangitikei.
