Welcome to my blog, where I post infrequently about books I'm reading, cool things I've found on the internet, poems I've liked, and other things that catch my attention.

On a quick skim, I saw "Off-████████ " which sure makes me think "off-Broadway."

On a further skim, I note the very first sentence ends with "is an ████████ ███████. ", and that "is" suggests a living person. And that "an" needs to be followed by a vowel, which is making me think "American author."

So, the main thing we have to go on at first is punctuation. I notice the _._ in the bullet list about a quarter of the way through. There are similar _._______ blanks a few paragraphs later. That makes me think of numbers, so possibly a ratio or measurement.

"during," one of the free words, appears 28 times; that seems like a lot.

Then 1/3 of the way down, there's a bullet list with ~_ and _______ per ___, which again look like math and numbers.

So, my first wild guess is gravity, which is wrong but at least appears twice.


The latest delightful Wordle-inspired puzzle game is Redactle, "a daily browser game where the user tries to determine the subject of a random obfuscated Wikipedia article, chosen from Wikipedia's 10,000 Vital Articles (Level 4)."

I did pretty well on my first two attempts (game #10 and game #11). It takes me a while to solve them, though, so I'm not sure how often I'll take the time out of my day to play. Sure is fun, though.
