Question of the Day

May 17, 2017

Yesterday we asked: On this date in 1817, the Mississippi River steamboat service began. At 200 feet, the deepest point of the river is located where?

Answer: It’s near Algiers Point in New Orleans.

This time, congrats go to...Mitch Cohen, who was first with the correct answer, tweeting, “New Orleans, I believe....Algiers Point, specifically. Si?” Si.

Your question of the day for today is…Where would you find the oldest continuous parliamentary body in the world? It’s a hotly debated subject, so we’ll take one of the three that regularly lay claim to the title, but bonus points if you can name all three.
