Here is my favourite Scrabble anecdote, incidentally. Actual Scrabble talk starts ~2:25 for the purists.
"Under the spreading chestnut tree,
I sold you and you sold me."
And the attempt is on. Scaly in fine form at the moment. They are up to the 21st game and each board is only taking 6 to 7 minutes to complete.
Watched a bit of it, can see how they might break the record if they keep making up words. The hell is an 'umu'.
Looked at the link, decided I can't **** to that, clicked off.
Nah, fair play to the Beevs, and the other bloke.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
No idea what an umu is, never heard of it.
It's not the most spectator friendly game though is it, scrabble.
'cause in a clearing when the sunlight comes
exposing all the shadows in our intricate behaviour
i feel a sort of fading
we build our own unfolding.
Makes sense. I used to live in PNG; they had a similar thing there (earth ovens) but called it a 'mumu'. Suspect Scrabblers aren't overly concerned with definitions though.
Just clicked the video, words on this board 'ugliest' and 'crim'. Targetting the Aussie audience then.
"All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusions is called a philosopher." - Ambrose Bierce
Langeveldt: I of course blame their parents.. and unchecked immigration!
GingerFurball: He's Austrian, they tend to produce the odd ****ed up individual
Burgey: Be careful dealing with neighbours whose cars don't have wheels but whose houses do.
Uppercut: Maybe I just need better strippers
Remember when I use to watch Scaly on Countdown (good times). Interaction with Des O’Conner was awkward to say the least. Scaly has lost a lot of weight, shame the hair seems to be going as well.
Good stuff though, great cause.
I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowdOverrated XI Warner, Rutherford, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaulone day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

Wait, what happened?
I watched for a bit during the day. And then when I came back home tonight, the stream was offline.
Just after halfway Ray stood up for a break and stumbled backwards and onto the floor. Basically he was very dizzy, had a cold sweat and achy. We were concerned it was to do with his diabetes but it turned out that he was badly dehydrated, he had really low blood pressure and whatnot. He's in hospital getting his fluids replaced.
That's too bad. Were you on world record setting pace? I hope you raised the funds you were hoping for.
