Question of the day

Feb 26, 2016

Our last question asked: According to The Guardian, a team of researchers from the University of London’s department of life sciences just completed a study on what? A study on penguin clumsiness, which entailed putting penguins on an actual treadmill. The findings? Fat ones fall over more often than slim ones. Important stuff, everyone.

Congratulations to Carrie Gray of Columbia Business School for being the very first to get that right! Honorable mentions go out to these wonderful people for also answering correctly: Ken Walker (who punctuated his answer with this gif),Ron Casalotti (who suggests, "Next study: Can Giraffes with longer necks reach higher?"), Martin BerlinerMark Gibbs (who "Thanks the gods we now know fat penguins fall over easier than thin ones" and added the hashtag #humanracesaved) and Tom Reale (who describes it slightly differently as "a study on why more penguins quit their New Year's fitness resolutions before March").

As for today's question, here it is: The Wall Street Journal reports that a random Russian IT guy is having a moment because why?
