There’s a reason I love Wordle—and I think there’s a reason I love games in general, whether we’re talking about cribbage or Alden Ring-It is that they are a form of escape. I make no apologies for my love of escapism. I’ve been an escape from reality for as long as I can remember, and from where I stand, that’s better done with a good game or a good book than with a bottle of something strong.
On the other hand, one must balance their escapism with awareness and involvement in the world. you can’t escape Everything No matter how much you may like. In Turkey and Syria, more than 22,000 people have died in the most devastating earthquake in recent memory.
In Ukraine, Russia continues its surprise attack, and the huge economic war over oil prices is showing no signs of abating.
But with that awareness comes the risk of being overwhelmed by doom and gloom, and thus we must balance that with some healthy escapism—whether that means playing video games or going on hikes or boxing or whatever. Balance in all things!
Ok, let’s do this wordl!
How to solve today’s wordle
Signal: When Wordle Bot crashes, we do this to find and fix its errors.
Signal: There are more consonants than vowels in this word.
My initial guess-Flame-Today was hot garbage. I might have just set this world on fire and gone. 447 possible solutions left!
Miraculously, I was able to reduce that number with only 4 Very good, Which was a super cool word. I really am a world superhero!
from here, i had some ideas but i went with First entry, hope it gets better started, That was the second word I almost went with. Luckily, it was better! Unfortunately, this left me with one more guess, for a total of four.
Zero points for guessing in four and zero points for tying the wordl bot (who guessed it) Slate / Diner / Decoy / Debug) for a total of zero thousands. No Hujjah for me today!
Pufft. I’m going to play some video games.
