The world's most detailed globe.

A Google a Day

There's no right way to solve it, but there's only one right answer.

Example:

We ask a question

"An 11-foot bird lives less than two miles from 30.891383,-102.885032. What's his name?"

You find the answer

Put your search skills and Google's tools to use. For instance, you can enter 30.891383, -102.885032 right inside the search bar, and learn that it's directly in the center of Ft. Stockton, TX. A quick Search for [Giant bird ft stockton TX] (or perhaps you're the adventurous type who'll "walk" there in Street View) and you'll have your bird: Paisano Pete.
