Sorry, that's my fault. Last time there was a new batch of quotes, I asked for Shakespeare.

Sorry, monty is right about there being a mistake. Still, I don't know if it would allow you to solve without filling in all the boxes. It looks like whoever entered it accidentally created boxes...

That's weird. If numbers are in the middle of a quote but not in boxes, they aren't meant to be solved. Like years or percentages. That doesn't sound like what you encountered, just putting it out...

You're missing a letter. The 2 is a frequency marker. Without seeing the quote, I'm going to guess the letter is a U, with the English/Canadian spelling of something like honor/honour.

Sorry about...

Counting people in the middle of a quote, I see 20. It's usually in the low 20s at the start of the month. Then, there are the usual 100%-ers like me who haven't been playing enough to get in the...

Switching people like that, at an early age, can lead to dyslexia and other learning disabilities. I tend to believe that's why the rate of dyslexia is higher in lefties. It wouldn't affect a young...

I don't know about that, except the left hand usually has the more complex piano part. I'm also a lefty who uses the mouse with the right. It sounds like a lot of people use the mouse with their...

@gryhnd - If you type left-handed, maybe you're a secret lefty! :) Although I play most sports right-handed, and I'm most definitely a lefty.

The secret test is which leg goes first when you put on...

Yo!

Here's another one. (And my crypto-twin, Lurker)

Qwerty keyboards favor lefties, with most of the often-used letters on the left hand. Perhaps that's part of our speed in online cryptos.

All-Time Rankings

Out of curiosity, does anyone know how often the all-time rankings updates? I know it isn't instant, but is it hourly, twice a day, or once a day? I've noticed new players with over a hundred...
