Question of the Day

Feb 21, 2017

Yesterday we asked: Dirty Dancing was first released 30 years ago this August. A successful campaign and petition led to its re-release in theaters in 1997. Who led that campaign?

Answer: That was the one-and-only Conan O’Brien.

Congrats to David Daniel, who was first with the right answer, “CONAN!”

Your question of the day for today is…Jeff Bezos named his company Amazon after the river, both to suggest scale and to capitalize on the fact that website listings were often alphabetical at the time. But what did he originally plan to name it?
