Question of the day

Dec 07, 2015

Our last question asked: According to the New York Times, in other countries you're as likely to be killed by a _____ as a  gun. Fill in the blank. That would be a falling object.

Congrats to Lucia A. Walinchus of Professional News Services LLC for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to these good folks for also getting it right: Craig PittmanEugene Hunt (who suggested a "tree"), Gerges ScottThomas Feyer (who proposes "ladder"), Carrie GrayWaterfield Designs (who hypothesizes "perhaps by yesterday's astro-backpack!"), Bob (who points out "Best article stat: Being killed by a gun in Japan as likely as being killed by lightning in the US"), Lee V. Gaines (who observes "Just 1 more thing (or perhaps many) to worry about"), Kate Morrissey (who soberly notes "though here in South Africa it would be stabbing, frequently by screwdriver"), and Ron Casalotti (who adds "Especially if that falling object is a case of AK-47s").

As for today's question, here it is: Beijing just did what for the first time?
