And The Clocks Were Striking Thirteen

I hear that some of the world's best Scrabble players are Thai mathematicians -- they memorize which word combinations are legal, and play the game for maximum value without speaking a word of English. Maybe it's less distracting that way; certainly, they never had to play a game where their brothers laid down letters to spell "irondick" and then attempted to claim that it was a word.
