Question of the day

May 25, 2016

Our last question asked: According to the CDC, 80 percent of what in 5 U.S. states failed health inspections? That would be public pools. Because you never know whose germs you're sharing that water with, eh?

Congrats to communicator Dagmar Ebaugh for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to Fabiola Camacho (who adds the hashtag #luckytoliveinCalifornia), Rachel Sentes (whose answer was "Swimming with the fishes in more ways than one- being in the pool is not cool!"), Mark Gibbs (who remarks "Please tell me no one is surprised by this"), RichelleCharlotte LoBuono (who asks "Conjunctivitis, anyone?"), Jackie Hague (who notes this question gave her "Caddy Shack Flashbacks" to the "Floating Baby Ruth" - ew!), Shawn Anderson (who alternatively dubs them "Chlorine Urine Spas"), Brian Hyland (who offers "and that's just one of the reasons #NJNJ is better than #NY"), Ron Casalotti (who suggests we might call "public access pools" just "cesspools" for short), Claudine Laforce (who resolves "I will never wade into one again!") and Martin Berliner for all getting that right, as well. Special shout out to Katie North, who admits "Idk the answer to the @muckrack Daily's trivia question, but I'm horrified to find out."

As for today's question, here it is: Proving fact truly is stranger than fiction, The Guardian just published a deep dive into the daily lifestyles of men who "live as" what?
