A Google-a-Day Puzzle for May 13

Geek Culture Internet

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…


You’re driving on Amfipoleos in Heraklion and find an archaeological site nearby. A mythological man-eating creature is said to have roamed the passageways of what legendary structure here?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (mouseover to see):

Search [butterfly-shaped gland] to find that this is the thyroid gland. Search [thyroid gland mineral hormones] to find that the thyroid gland uses iodine to create hormones needed by the human body.
