Thanks - worst-case I will just fill it with phrases but provide no extra info (which shows up once you've finished the puzzle), like background info, explanation, link, image, video.

Those are the bits that take the longest. Each phrase can become like a tiny research project. And I don't even know if it's worthwhile. No clue if people read those let alone appreciate them. 😀

I wondered how you automated choosing phrases….I guess you didn’t, that’s how! I suppose another thanks is in order then, one for creating it, another for keeping it going! Double thanks!
Yeah, I probably play 5 a week on average. The short ones get hard!

I hope you can figure out a way to automate it completely, or at least to the point where you just need to authorize it’s choices once a week. I would hate you to burn out and for it to die.

You're still playing it?!

Awesome my friend. Thanks so much for the feedback!

It's become a bit of a burden because I still manually create every puzzle, so every night near midnight I start frantically trying to get the next puzzle ready.

Oh man, that's a bummer.

Thanks for letting me know. Not sure if I'll have time to try digging into that, especially because I don't have any iOS devices.

Unsure what happened, but after my iPad updated the os last weekend, it seems embeds in comments no longer work. I just see a blank space, even for the one I just posted from YouTube.
Thought you might want to know.
Same thing for videos ant posted from bluesnews. Just empty space…both when opted in and opted out of “beta”

I feel like, if integrated here, this could drive traffic to the sift. Not sure if that’s your plan or wish, just a thought.

Jack and Grace Reenact I Love Lucy's Chocolate Factory Scene

It came as a surprise to me that they colorized a whole bunch of episodes like that!

I'd seen the couple that they colorized many years ago, e.g., a xmas episode, but I had no idea they released a DVD with 16 colorized eps!

I'll have to check those out!

Did you see the colorized episodes? I watched a few clips online a few days ago and a full Christmas episode on CBS a few years ago. They were beautiful and clear! Also, for its DVD.

Love this. ❤️

I've loved I Love Lucy from the time I was a young kid. I've seen every episode multiple times.

I've tried to get my sons into the show. They've seen an episode or two. I'm going to keep at it.

I Cooked a Chicken by Slapping It

3-year-old's priceless response after mom "ate all his candy

Totally agree with all the wtf sentiments.

I'd never prank my kids like this, and I think it's bad for them in general.


1. I do enjoy the clips where kids are really sweet and generous with responses like "It's totally okay. I don't mind." and "I hope you didn't get a tummy ache." These are the types of kids where they seem to be getting good parenting otherwise (and seem to lack lowlife genes).

2. For the other dipshit kids with atrocious responses, I feel like they respond with selfish toxicity and disgust because they're already probably being raised that way, so this prank is just par for the course.


Weird flex I know, but fwiw my kids don't eat their Halloween candy, and they donate their haul at the dentist to send the junk to our troops.

(My kids don't eat candy in general, but if we, their parents, did tell them we'd eaten something they wanted, they'd respond with hearts full of happiness hoping we enjoyed it. My boys are wonderful. ❤️)

How Many Slaps Does it Take to Cook a Chicken?

Excellent observations. 👍

moonsammy said:

I mean, it seemed pretty obvious that there was no way this would work. But I absolutely appreciate the thorough real-world proving of it.

I think the main operative failure here is that any slapping implement will be cooled by the air for most of its cycle. So there will be an upper bound after which the air-chilled surface of the "slapper" will cool the chicken by an amount equal to the friction-induced heating effect. Even if the high speed didn't destroy the machine or the meat, the air temp would make the effort impossible.
