  • Boysmom and The Magic Thumb

    Just thought we should take the burden off the Green on 50 thread:

    To RussDNails My brain gets tired far before my thumb does!

    and to Naboka, I’m only 23 so I have no spouse to tend to! Saying that, I guess I should explain the name “Boysmom” lol. My mom created this account when I was 11 and her and I would sit at the computer and play every day together. Fast forward to April, and the start of quarantine, I needed a new word game to play to occupy my time and was able to recover the account.


    Ah! That explains the incredible improvement over the missing 12 years. I've meant to ask how you had virtually become a different player with such an improved skill set in that time. The answer is: you actually are a different player.

    The phone dexterity seems to be part of your age group's culture. I watch my son and daughter (26 & 29) with amazement. Their thumbs dance over the screens with lightening speed. Texting for me is an absolute tedious chore. Your mind and my kid's minds interact with screens at speeds I can't match or comprehend. A completely different set of neural pathways you guys have.

    Unlike your friends, I would have guessed you're aware of and recognize patterns at a speed level I can only imagine. Very impressive that you've accumulated such a huge, accessible storehouse of words so quickly.

    Love the story of your mom and you.

    This quarantine has been interesting. As a positive, it provides more time for art classes on line.

    love the name of the thread Naboka and thank you for the kind words.
    This is a rare case where the board was so good that I almost saw too many words and was forgetting to do words I had just thought to do. Here’s a video as promised, my apologies for the somewhat poor quality

    Also, I just realized I cropped the video short - I got 174 words and 841 points

      The wife teaches kindergarten so I get exposed to hundreds of book titles. I liked the title of the thread too, but, this is a weird world, so I was slightly apprehensive about it being misunderstood as sarcasm rather than a fondness for the magic of human capacity.

      Wow on the video.

      I'd be jealous.

      But jealously's a waste of soul space.

      So, I'll simple admire your skills--and be happy there are people better than me to give me reason to improve. Imagine a world where running a 4 minute mile was considered physically impossible.

        Nice video, honestly I couldn't tell what words you were getting just seeing your thumb moving everywhere. I really didn't think the phone would even register words that quick, but I never moved that quick swiping. Your hands are very dexterous, it's beautiful to see in action. I'm sure your mother is impressed! And lol at (that wasn't very good) at the end, I do that a lot to. I'm 31 myself and started playing Wordtwist in 2011, I believe, under a different name (wordlearner999).

          BTW, as Einstein said, "relatives can be a pain in the ass."

          Hearing you say, "that's not very good" after your game just goes to show that "relativity" is sometimes found playing Wordtwist.

          If I'd done that well, I would have peed all over myself with elation and not washed for a week.
