Kuku Impenetrable Metal Ball Puzzle 42 Utility Towel Game of Thrones Scarves Hacking Scrabble (Part One) @karger I was just about to post the exact same idea. I thought the same thing, except that has its own complications. Just "limit[ing] your word sets to words starting with a" as you suggest would not work without a lot of additional logic to cover whether or not things like "aa," "bb," etc. are valid. "aa" is a valid word so you would need to come up with only words that fit both of these criteria: - Starts with "a" - Contains at least one "a" (not counting the first letter) "bb" is not valid word so you would need to come up with only words that fit both of these criteria: - Starts with "b" - Does not contain any "b" (after the first letter) This would require additional logic in the Python code that would not be as simple as just restricting you set of words since the words that fit these criteria would not necessarily be part of the original set. Nonetheless, although It would make the Python a bit more complicated it would, as you said, make remembering a lot easier.

Doctor Who Time Lord Psychic Container Magic IQ Gift Box The Inkless Metal Pen: Alloy tip never needs to be replaced The tip of the Inkless Metal Beta Pen is a solid piece of metal. As you write, tiny amounts of the patented alloy mark the page. There's no ink - only metal. The metal tip of the Inkless Metal Pen makes permanent markings on most any writing surface. The Inkless Metal Pen is an awesome (non-radioactive) hybrid of pens and pencils. The metal tip of the Inkless Metal Pen will last a lifetime because only tiny amounts of the alloy are actually transferred to the page when you write. The solid metal tip ensures that the Inkless Metal Beta Pen is always ready to write. Ink is a liquid and is therefore susceptible to leaking, smudging, and drying out. It also doesn't need a cap (which we all lose anyway). Like our Space Pen and .375 Bullet Pen, the Inkless Metal Pen can write upside down (unlike normal pens whose ink flows away from the tip when held at extreme angles). The Inkless Metal Beta Pen will last a lifetime, never needs a refill, writes upside down, and won't smudge or smear.

Valar Morghulis A Better Hangman Strategy There’s no easy way to say it. You’ve probably been playing Hangman wrong your entire life! What is the optimal strategy for guessing letters to maximize the chances of getting your first letter? What is hangman? In its purest form, hangman is a word game played between two people. One person selects a secret word, and the other tries to determine the word by guessing it letter-by-letter. The player with the secret writes a series of dashes, one representing each letter in the solution. As a young person, when you first started to play the game, you probably called out random letters. Next, you probably graduated to learning that not all letters are used equally. Once you get just a couple of letters of in a hangman puzzle, the game becomes easier. Code, Cyphers and Secret Writing Ordering of letter frequency in English language: So, the first letter we should guess when trying to solve a hangman is the letter ‘E’, right? Wrong! First mistake First Refinement There's a noticeable difference.
