I take on the entire Internet. Some words are meaningless. You learn a lesson that will serve you well far beyond Wordle. I get to use the word "heuristic" in a sentence.

If James Webb makes it to L2, it just might be a Christmas miracle. Also, a little code saves us from an intractable polynomial equation.
