A Google-a-Day Puzzle for June 17

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…


Who forgives whom in the painting of a father and son by the Dutch master who’s also known for “The Artist’s Son Titus at His Desk”?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (mouseover to see):

Search [Shylock city] and find that Shylock was a character in Shakespeare’s play The Merchant of Venice. Search [Venice island glass] to find that Venetian glass is created on Murano. A search for [forbidden to leave Murano 15th century] leads you to conclude that you’re a glassmaker.
