    this is only true for the english speaking world....

    So, Ponderable, the rest of the world doesn't drop things... not even hints?

    Why do some people, when told of a persons death, say "you're kidding"?

    In Germany "Scheiße", "Scheibenkleister" or a simple "Aaaaaah!" will be said or shouted at the occasion.

    It can have as many as four o's. Depending on how heavy or light the exclamation is. Yep, up to four. But no more. State law.

    There should be one word association game -- the original WAG, the one we've come to know and love.
    All the others, the A-Z, Z-A, last-letter-first clones and satirical copycats, should be dispatched forthwith.

    Spam can serve a useful purpose, if kept within reasonable limits.
    that's reasonable

    no harm in one wa game

    one would not be a problem, it's the flood of A-Z, Z-A, Free association WA, the latest one, the oldest one

    personally I can't connect with any of them, hence the non association one, but that didn't work, there's always some sort of association
