Question of the day

Our last question asked: In honor of yesterday's unusual date, what is the reason Leap Years were invented? There have been a lot of reasons bandied about, but according to the Wall Street Journal, the Catholic Church actually revamped the calendar to calculate the date of Easter, rather than to regulate the seasons, as lore tells us. But we counted both answers.

Congratulations to David Daniel of CNN for being the very first to get that right! Honorable mentions go out to Lucia A. WalinchusMarina StenosKen WalkerMargo Howard (who suggests "to help women lie about their age"), Mark Gibbs (who jokes the phenomenon only occurs "if scientists don't see own shadow"), John WallSarah-Ann S.Ron Casalotti (who quips "So some 40-yr-old born Feb 29 can joke he's only 10 yrs old") and Andrew Holtz.
