A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Friday, September 9th

Geek Culture

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, we give you… TODAY’S PUZZLE:

You’re eating in a square named after Saint Wenceslas and a waiter asks, “Byste jako zákusek?” What is he offering you?


Search [brood box] and find articles on beekeeping that reveal that a brood box is a hive box used to raise honeybees. Search [hive brood box] and find that a hive’s brood box is where a queen bee lays her eggs. Search [number eggs queen bee] and find many articles with estimates ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 eggs per day.
