I'll keep an eye out for that. I did get SYMMETRICALNESS today, but didn't notice a DIS- in front. Of course that form might not have worked anyway.

I'm sure it's a much more common word these days with all the hipsters running around.

it's a much more common affliction..(and I think you mean "hipsters RIDING around, on pseudovintage fixies").

Damn, I'f love to run across some of my old boards like that. It's been days since I've even seen an existing word worth more than 36 points (and generally they're worth a lot less).

Wow, Spike, that's brutal. It's a mystery to me how boards are distributed here. Last month as lalatan I never saw 1 game with a 45 pt best word record. (And you know I look at and play a lot of games in a month) This month so far I've had 3 45's.
I hope the trend reverses for you soon!

Sometimes it's hard not to believe that the Boggle gods (or whatever) are working against you, although I rationally believe that it's just the luck of the draw. Things are looking up though. I got a 38 point word (one of yours). It has been a slow month for big words for me though.

Another medical (surgical) word... I kinda can't believe I found CHOLECYSTECTOMIZED.

For some reason CHOLECYSTECTOMIZE and CHOLECYSTECTOMIZES didn't score.

Just made one of my most unique finds: NEBUCHADNEZZARS for 31 pts and 2 records. I noticed 2 z's on the right side of the board and thought they're usually together for a reason. Then I noticed nebu- and it dawned on me nebuchadnezzar has 2 z's. Followed the path and there it was!

Definition of Nebuchadnezzar
1. Proper noun. A ruler of Babylon in the Chaldean Dynasty who reigned c. 605 (B.C.E.) 562 (B.C.E.). According to the Bible, he conquered Judah and Jerusalem, and sent the Israelites into exile.

2. Noun. A very large wine bottle (named after the King) with the capacity of about 15 liters, equivalent to 20 standard bottles
