I found an interesting one today, though, that stumps me a little bit. The following question ends up being the most popular question on my list, above “How did Hamlet die” and “What does Romeo compare Juliet to”. Ready for this? Well, I suppose there’s really no surprise as I put it right in the title. Where does Cleopatra live?
I can’t imagine why that is such a popular question. Is there a modern pop singer with that name, or something? Given that it is being asked in the present tense, you see. Even googling for the answer, at least right now, turns up no meaningful results. Lots of variations (“Where in Egypt did Cleopatra live?”) but none for that exact phrasing. Makes me wonder if people are asking a question that’s not being answered.
So here we are. Where does Cleopatra live? There’s the easy answer of “Alexandria, Egypt.” Is there a better or different answer, in the context of the Shakespeare play?
Update: Couple hours later, and we’re on the first page of Google results for this question. So make it good!
If you’ve arrived from Google and this is *not* the answer to the question you were hoping for, please share with us what you meant so we can help you find the answer! We’re good like that.
