A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Dec. 14

Our good friends at Google run a daily puzzle challenge and asked us to help get them out to the geeky masses. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery. Each morning at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here.

SPOILER WARNING:
We leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS!

Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use the Google-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience.

And now, without further ado, we give you…

TODAY’S PUZZLE:

If you turned the entire state of Rhode Island into a farm, how many acres would your farm have?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (mouseover to see):

Search [what determines eye color in babies]. While there is no single gene for eye color, the biggest impact comes from a gene that determines the amount of the pigment melanin a person will have. Light-skinned babies are generally born with blue eyes due to a shortage of melanin. So your baby’s eyes at birth will probably be blue.
