hehe, i originally had "FORT_ _ _" as one of the options, but i guess the editors thought that this ancient programming language was too obscure.. =)

I did that, Bluetwo. I took it out because it is really an acronym, not a word, and most word games don't allow acronyms. Hope you don't mind too much. Now that I think about it, I probably should have just left it in. I'm sure you wouldn't have gotten many (or possibly any) complaints.

"Strand" is like a strand of hair, or a strand of cotton etc.

"strand" can also mean to leave someone alone in a helpless or difficult situation (like, "i forgot to pick up susie and stranded her at the airport").

When I saw t___sit, I got it right away. The word just popped into my head, and the rest of them worked with ran. Very easy, but fun.

Maybe I'm just slow today, but where are you supposed to enter the answer? The only options it gives me are the "show hint" & "show answer". I know the answer, but don't see where to put it.

Good one. It was easy enough, but it did take a little longer than most are saying. Everyone is so bright. At least that is what they imply!

don't know what it was about transit, but that helped me, too! it's always fun to get it quickly-helps balance the ones I don't get! thank you!

"F _ _ _ TIC" really helped me.

Yeah, a programming language wouldn't work for me, either, even though I've heard of it; it's not a real word.
