Today's free coffee has been brought to you by... the Sun.

"In astronomy, what is the closest star to Earth?"

Today's trivia question at Timothy's World Coffee. Surprisingly, they still hadn't reached their quota of free coffees yet. Even as I sit here typing this entry, someone behind me was stumped. A fun little trick question.

Timothy's has done stuff like that before. Where one either forgets about the obvious answer, or the question seems so obvious that one doubts whether or not the obvious answer is really the correct one. Well, not today, for me at least. I hope you all enjoy your morning cup.
