Question of the day

Our last question asked: Fourteen years ago, a popular, bumbling buffoon of a character seemed to stumble upon a complex equation predicting the mass of the Higgs boson. Who was the character and why were the cartoonists inspired to include the idea? That would be Homer Simpson, and the reason the equation made it onto the blackboard was because one of the writers for the episode was friends with someone involved in research on the Higgs.

Congratulations to Karen Hansen of RTDNA for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions belong to Craig Pittman (who was the first to know about the friend connection), Noah GuineyRebecca NuttallBlue Gal/FranBrianne O'DonnellLisa Maria RickmanAurora Strategy Grp.'s Marcel Wieder, Ron CasalottiKen Walker (who added that "Matt Groening's 'Futurama' also own the first mathematical proof created as TV entertainment") and Tobias Wall for getting it right, as well.

As for today's question, here it is: What did a high school senior do to ease the stress of applying to college? (Do you think they'll accept her)?
