Question of the day

Jul 29, 2016

Our last question asked: It's since been negated, but a New York Times article recently sparked a rumor that President Obama engaged in what peculiar late night habit? Eating exactly 7 almonds.

Yes, exactly seven.

We're not sure where that rumor came from, but we're okay with it.

Congrats to beauty blogger Charlotte LoBuono (at right) for being the very first to answer that correctly (and adding the quip "The man's nuts!"). Honorable mentions go out to Mark Gibbs (who adds "Love it - Anal Retentive in Chief!"), Eve ByronPashva (who jokes "forcing him to open more packs because it can't be divided by 7"), and Lori Friedman for also getting that right. Shout outs to Margo Howard for guessing "Cookies and milk" and Ron Casalotti for guessing "Play Words with Friends," which both sound like much more plausible late-evening activities for the commander-in-chief.

As for today's question, here it is: Speaking of President Obama, what was interesting about the running time of Obama's and former president Bill Clinton's speeches?
