A Google-a-Day Puzzle for July 29

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 created the only living ancient world wonder?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (mouseover to see):

Search [two cents plain] to find that you’d be handed a glass of seltzer water. The cheapest drink at most soda fountains, it was called “two cents plain” because it was just plain carbonated water without flavoring. Search [seltzer water inventor] to find the chemist Joseph Priestly, who is also given credit for the discovery of oxygen.
