Thursday's question of the day

Mar 19, 2015

Our last question asked: Why do scientists have penguins "walking the plank" in a London zoo? They're attempting to study the species' distinctive walk.

Congratulations to Sean Maher for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions belong to Mark Poepsel (who adds the hashtag #ShortLegSympathizer), Brock ThatcherJohn WallHollywood HighlandsKeith TaylorCindi LashRon Casalotti (who jokes they're analyzing the penguins' waddle "as opposed, say, to politicians, who waffle"), and Ken Walker (who added this useful demotivational poster to his answer).

As for today's question, here it is: The Washington Post asks in a headline: Why was a Viking woman buried in modern-day Sweden with an Arabic finger ring?
