Question of the day

Our last question asked: According to the Wall Street Journal, many Nobel laureates react to the phone call informing them of their award in what way? As it turns out, many of them initially think it's a prank call (and some even hang up!).

Congratulations to Craig Pittman of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to his colleague Ken WalkerCarrie GrayMark Poepsel (who wonders, "Do they say, 'You're kidding?' Or maybe they say 'bullshit'"), Thomas FeyerAmy B. WangDan RosenbaumMaureen MacGregor (who jokes, "so much for the wicked schmart"), Robin Epley (who admits she'd do the same thing), Dagmar EbaughMargo HowardLucia A. Walinchus (who quips "But I won a Nobel Prize and a free cruise in one phone call so it's legit"), Becky YerakVanina GoldhoferMark Gibbs (who answers in the form of a Haiku: "A voice on my phone / Hi, you’ve won a Nobel prize / Am I being punked?"), Melissa Neumann (who suggests one possible crank: "Do you have Prince Albert in a can? Better go let him out!"), Cindi Lash and Hollywood Highlands for also getting that right.

As for today's question, here it is: What are scientists saying is "too big to fail" right now?
