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:
Rembrandt painted a philosopher looking at the bust of a Greek poet. The gold medallion on the bust represents another famous Greek. Who is it?
YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (HIGHLIGHT TO SEE):
Search [How many cities have been capitol of United States]. Find there have been three: New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Use Google Maps directions function plus add location. Find it would take 2 days and 21 hours to walk the 226 miles from New York to Philadelphia to Washington, D.C.
