Word Scrambler II - off-topic fun

#1

Post by Hoi Polloi » Sun Nov 21, 2010 2:09 pm

For those of you that didn't catch the original word scrambler, here are the simple rules:

(1) you may keep the same letters or swap 1 letter in the word for a new letter of your choice (it will always be 5 letters)
(2) you may re-arrange the letters to make a new word, whether you changed a letter or not
(3) you may add commentary above or below the new word, but the new word should be in all caps and in a row of its own.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

In honor of the upcoming national holiday, I will start with a quote from Abraham Lincoln's Proclamation of Thanksgiving from 1863: I do therefore invite my fellow citizens [...to...] fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of

PEACE

harmony, tranquility and union.
Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you. -St. Augustine
We are reformers in Spring and Summer; in Autumn and Winter we stand by the old;
reformers in the morning, conservers at night. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I know a guy who actually started smoking to get a RASPY voice.
"The home run became glorified with Babe Ruth. Starting with him, batters have been thinking in terms of how far they could hit the ball, not how often."
~Rogers Hornsby (He hit over .400 3 times in his 23 yr. career. His career BA is .358 2nd highest in history. He won 7 batting titles.)
