Do you like to figure things out using Google? Do you think you’re pretty good at coming up with answers using only internet search? AGoogleADay.com is a website that posts a daily trivia challenge that puts your Googling skills to the test. According to Google a Day:
We ask a question (for example:) “An 11-foot bird lives less than two miles from 30.891383,
-102.885032. What’s his name?” You find the answer – Put your search skills and Google’s tools to use. For instance, you can enter 30.891383, -102.885032 right inside the search bar, and learn that it’s directly in the center of Ft. Stockton, TX. A quick Search for [Giant bird ft stockton TX] (or perhaps you’re the adventurous type who’ll “walk” there in Street View) and you’ll have your bird: Paisano Pete.
A Google a Day is powered by “Deja Google – A wormhole inspired time machine that searches the Internet as it existed before the game began,” so that you don’t run into spoilers while searching for the answer. If you get stuck there are hints you can look at. If you miss a day you can go back and look at previous day’s challenges.
