It comes from a video game (Call of Duty: AW) which prompted players to press the 'F' key to engage in the action of 'paying their respects' during a funeral. That thing took off as a meme and then started being used as shorthand for "That sucks, mate".

There are definitely better pirate-related clues to get at "Arr," but I agree, prefacing "matey" is most likely "aye," so I works better than R here.

Cockney accent drops the "t". Also, this still needs at least another 30 seconds added to it. I went pretty freaking fast throughout the whole quiz and only got caught up on two answers for maybe 10 seconds, and yet I still couldn't even make it to the last 5 questions. Gives you no time to think at all.

depends what they are trying to say.

"west ham" has a "t" but no "h" So does "Geoff Hurst". "Harry" has no "H". Martin Peters has some sort of gutteral noise instead of a "t" both times. It's not "marrin". "Tooting" has one "T" and then a gutteral noise instead of the second one.

'j' is also dotted in lowercase, not just i.
+4
Level 61
Jul 10, 2021
I assume it's because of the phrase "dot your i's and cross your t's. If you don't do either of those, the lowercase letter just looks like an l, whereas j has the curve on the bottom to differentiate it.

By the way, is there a mathematical working-out behind the worst scrabble tile?
+4
Level 73
Jul 12, 2021
I think it's basically because Q is one of the least used letters in the english language, along with Z, X, and J. But with Q, you almost always need to also have a U in order to form a word. Not sure of the exact mathematical way to express it but with those two pieces of information it seems fairly likely that Q must be the worst letter to have

Not mathematical per se, but you can run simulations. For expert players, a Q on your rack is worth about -10 if I remember correctly, while a blank is worth about +25. Obviously this is just an average and depends on the game situation.

Since Qi is a word, having a Q isn't that bad. It is great on a triple letter or word score. A rack with four I's is far more annoying than having a Q.

Q can be good when playing with casual players, but against experts neither of those things is that great.

Qi is nice if you get the Q near the end of a Scrabble game (where it's hard to make long words) but if you get it near the start then it's pretty bad, pro Scrabble players average over 30 points a go, so an 11 point word would usually be a bad play.

As for the triple word tiles generally pros will deliberately not play a good word if it gives their opponent access to the triple word tile because it's basically giving their opponent easy points. They probably also wouldn't play a vowel next to a triple letter tile either for similar reasons.

I thought exactly this - a Q can get you a fairly hefty score (20ish) with fairly little effort, but it's not often contributing to the kind of devastating score (50+) that you need to make repeatedly if you're going to beat a seasoned player. Could be a match-winner on its own if it comes at the right time, though!

The intersection can also be a Y as well as a T. Y-junctions are pretty common. (See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-way_junction).
