A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Tuesday, April 26th

Reading Time: 2 minutes

As we’ve reported before, our good friends over at Google are starting up a daily puzzle challenge. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery.

And much to our enjoyment, they’ve decided to share the puzzles with us at GeekDad (hmm… Google a Day? GD? GeekDad?), so each morning at 12:01am ET you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here.

SPOILER WARNING: As a test, we’re going to leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS!

Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use the Google-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience.

And now, without further ado…

TODAY’S PUZZLE:

If a man has two swallows tattooed on his chest, how many inches has he sailed?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (HIGHLIGHT TO SEE):

Search [century of Columbus trip to New World]. Find out it took place in the 15th century. Search [sports played on ice]. This will lead you to a number of sports, one of which is curling. A search for [curling] will show that the sport began in the 16th century in Scotland.
