Rules be damned!

Too significant not to include:

CRISPR

And for such as SNAFU, POSH, FUBAR, TV, HIFI, WIFI...?

Those have all been tried in the past, all but "posh" have resulted in the "set of letters" being hidden, or the poster having to stand around in Rocky's.

Now SNAFU has been used as a name in World War II military cartoons. The character was Private Snafu.

Producer---Brooks.
Mel Brooks' movie 'The Producers'.
Which included the hilarious production Springtime For Hitler.
Which the producers of the show intended to be so outrageous that the show would bomb, which is what they wanted. To their chagrin, it became a hit, and the show was wildly successful.

Recently there have been a few entries that do not have a link to the last post, but to one further back in history.
This can happen when two respond within a short time of each other (say a couple of minutes), which is fair enough. However some have been tens of minutes "late". If you find your post is very late, and doesn't link to the current last word then either hit the red-x, or (preferred) edit your post with a new word - either of these actions will save your bar bill in Rocky's, or a moderator hiding your word (which in this game can cause lots of "fun" and is very much a last resort).
Would this be what you're talking about Rob seeing as the last word was my "manufacturer"?

Yes - I do however see a link between manufacture and brooks - Brooks make bicycle saddles......

I would proffer a little bit of a warning to those that have active blocked user lists. There will be occasion when one may miss something interesting/useful, I just wish there was a way within BOINC to block a user in one thread, but be able to see them in another.

Raptor is the the current US interceptor. I was thinking of using F-22 or MIG-31 but wanted to keep to a word.

ThrustSSC is a proper name. I know it's a weird one but it is the name of the car that hold the current land speed record. So it naturally follows the prior 3 words.

But not on their own publicity material, and the Guinness Book of Records uses the two "word" version - it was pure media laziness that lost the space.
