I have a file...
... of SearchResearch Challenges that I keep updated with new questions. In that document I've got a few in the "Odds & Ends" category. Here are a couple of quick questions that have come up in the past few months that I can't work into a regular Challenge. So, for today, a special Challenge!
1. This wallpaper showed up recently on my Android device; I was struck by how beautiful it is. Can you figure out where this in on our planet? What's the lat/long? (There's no metadata here, I already checked.)
2. Some animals have the ability to grow body parts back when they lose them. Some lizards, for instance, can regrow a lost tail; some salamanders can grow back a leg. But SOME animals don't grow the missing body part back, but reorganize their body plan. What's this process called? What kind of animal can do this?
3. I ran across this great word Mbaqanga, and I know it refers to a particular kind of music. But WHAT kind of music is this? And... how in the heck do you pronounce that word?
Can you let us know HOW you found the answers to each of these?
We'll give the answers next Monday, and probably have a couple of other updates during the rest of this week. Stay tuned!
