A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Apr. 10

Geek Culture

Our good friends at Google run a daily puzzle challenge and asked us to help get them out to the geeky masses. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery. Each morning at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here.

.answer {color:#fff;}
.answer:hover {color:#333;}

We 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…


The president who gave the longest inaugural speech ever had a very short term. How many days did it last?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (mouseover to see):

Search Google Maps for [Dvortsovaya Naberezhnaya] to learn that this street is the home of the Hermitage museum in Russia. Looking at the map, you see that the Neva River runs along it. Search [Neva river March] to learn that the Neva is usually frozen in March, so ships cannot navigate it.
