Question of the Day

Jan 02, 2017

Last week, we asked: Since New Year’s Eve 2006, themidnight ball drop in Times Square is directly preceded by which John Lennon song?

Answer: Imagine. Congrats to Jack Simmons for answering first. Honorable mention for David Daniel who adds, "Hope in 2017, we come a little closer to 'all the people living life in peace.'"

Your question of the day for today is…In a much-read (25,000 shares) opinion piece today, the New York Times' Paul Krugman writes that since electing Donald Trump, America has become a "Stan." No, not a "stalker/fan" who creeps men's rights forums on Reddit, but a country from Central Asia ending with "-stan" whose "tinpot dictators" we used to mock. How many of the world's countries end in "-stan"? (not including America of course)

As always, click here to tweet your answer to @MuckRack.

We’ll announce the winners tomorrow!
