I have a TCL Roku TV and a Roku soundbar for my Sony. I haven't seen any of that shit yet and I better not. I'd be taking that straight to Consumer Affairs and my elected reps. That's going to cost them huge sales.

Microsoft negotiated a purchase price of $95/share. They didn’t do it expecting the share price to magically jump to $95.
That’s not how those things work.

I mean it seems like this is the equivalent of the "argument" that you can never get anywhere because before you do, you have to go half the distance...
Also... since nothing can be shorter than a Planck length, that was pretty much a given.

My guesses (in secret text to avoid spoilers): taser, round, crock, broil, proof, proxy I definitely got a bit lucky, there were other valid words I had not eliminated. Third guess was weak sauce -- should have thought harder about it.
My bests are in 3.
I lost today's, for the second time. I had 3 greens in the second turn, but still didn't get it. The last two had a LOT of potential combinations.
