  • Oh! The word was 'back-handed compliments slips'. In case you were interested.

  • If you add a word to more than one of your lists, it is counted only once for your total words. I've been contemplating a similar experiment to work out which Wordies are most correlated in their listings.

  • 48. Today this is a very special number. I set out with three objectives. To discover how many clicks on 'random word' it would take for me to be given (1) a word that was on one of my lists, (2) a word that had been submitted by me first, and (3) a 'sweet tooth fairy'.

    Not one of these happened until my 48th click, which gave me all three in one word!

    On Wordie at the time there were 367,374 words, 127,630 unique words, 1619 words added by me, 2420 words on my lists, and the 'stf' count was 747.

    I'd like to work out the probabilities but I need to know - does the 'words added by me' figure mean unique words added by me, or all words added by me to any list, and if not either then what? Anyone know?
