I love cats, but I've spent much of my life trying to figure them out. Someone once said that the difference between a cat & a dog is that the dog thinks "He feeds me, he takes care of all my needs,...

I'm still working on my franchise fee.

Anyway, if 35 points is in your "midrange", I'm impressed.

By the way, I don't know if it's any more convenient, but there are applications (like ScreenGrab)...

My best guess is to pay a good Russian hacker (or the NSA) to keep track for you. I'd like to keep a little better track of what I do myself.

lalatan - That's great! Hard to tell if it's a streak, or you've just gotten a hell of a lot better. (OK, being an optimist/pessimist, I'm guessing some of both.) Anyway, congratulations!

lalatan,

Thanks for the reference, but it looks like you got it backwards. They show that Kansas is flatter than a pancake (or, as they put it mathematically, it's "damn flat"). I could swear that...

I've never heard of a serviceberry, and I can't imagine coming up with it even out of desperation. Great find! Maybe I should start adding -BERRY or -BERRIES to all words from now on.

Thanks, great song! I saw another Amateur Transplants video that's even better (as far as words go). It's about Paracetamoxyfrusebendroneomycin. Have to go to a 6x6 board to find that though...

TR,

My desktop computer has no eyes or ears, so I'm safe there. (I do occasionally wonder about my laptop.) The link to videos I saw definitely wasn't a coincidence, although the Pinterest stuff...

TR, I'm surprised you actually got a board. What did it look like? Like I said, I just get some kind of "Loading..." message, but nothing ever happens. I tried waiting it out for 5-10 minutes or so...

Glad I inspired you with CYTOGENICITIES. That was a guess on my part. Sorry about DEPARTMENTALIZATION. I would have tried that too, with a potential 39 points.

As far as concentrating on forms of a...

I go for long words, and I'm always hesitant to try the -NESS version after getting the -NESSES one. (I see from other posts that one or the other might not work.) Anyway, I've seen too often that...

I'm probably not telling you stuff you don't already know, but whenever I see -OLOGIES, I start by tracing back the Os. It seems like every part you can add to that (in reverse order) ends in a O....

I haven't quite decided whether finding a long word is really easier if you know it's there or not. At least if someone has found it, you know there's something to find. (I tend to think that does...

I never took the 50000 WPM too seriously. We normally don't think in words anyway (some, but definitely not all), so any kind of conversion is more or less meaningless. If 1 picture = 1000 words,...

OK. I'll look for QUASIHEMIDEMISEMIQUAVERNESES too (although that might not quite fit on a 5x5 board).

Old post, but I saw references to DEMISEMIQUAVER a while ago. I'd never heard of it, but I'm pretty sure I've seen & got that since then.
