Question of the day

Mar 21, 2016

 Our last question asked: A new Internet conspiracy theory proposes that Ted Cruz is what, now? And no, we're not talking about the Zodiac killer theory! Apparently now the Internet is convinced Ted Cruz is the lead singer of Stryper, the 80s Christian metal hair band. Hey, more plausible than a toddler-aged murderer, right?

Congrats to Lucia A. Walinchus (who adds "Actually the similarity is striking") of Professional News Services LLC for being the very first to get that right! Honorable mentions go out to Ken WalkerKelly Phillips Erb (who notes the idea "suddenly makes my childhood much more interesting"), Sarah-Ann Soffer (who remarks "The singer has also been confused for Billy Ray Cyrus," which we can kind of see why), Ron Casalotti (who quips "Hey, you never know. His politics ARE stuck between between a Christian rock & a hard place") and Mark Gibbs for all answering correctly, as well. Shout out to Hal Davis for guessing "the second gunman in Dallas stationed on the grassy knoll" and M Edward/Ed Borasky for guessing "One of the goalies from 'Strange Brew'." Both theories that are new to us, as well!

As for today's question, here it is: What submission is currently dominating a poll to name a $290 million polar research ship, much to the chagrin of the scientists who asked the public?
