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.
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…
If a man lives in the city that lifted prohibition on Mar. 1, 1989, and he was born the year it banned beer, how old is he?
YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (mouseover to see):
Search [SJC] to learn that it’s the airport code for San Jose International Airport. Search [STL] to find that it’s Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. Use Google Maps to discover that if you walked nonstop, the trip of 2,056 miles would take you 28 days, 2 hours.
