The Anatomy of a Sailor

I love this. Now somebody get creative and make one for kayaking.
Well it looks like Heisenberg is still sorting out some distribution issues. Australian police discovered a shipment of methamphetamine worth approximately $163 million (US) this week. What makes this slightly unique is that they found the nearly 400 pound haul stuffed in amongst a shipment of kayaks coming out of China. 19 of the 27 kayaks in the in the shipping container was filled with meth.

Terrible Word Search: Kayak
Tuesday, 04 February 2014

Looking for a challenge today? Find the kayak in the word search above. Here is a hint; the word appears only once. The idea for this comes from Charles Lohr who decided to see how hard it would be for a computer to build a word search based on only the letters you gave it. I wrote a program that creates them in C. It took about 30 minutes. It simply produces letters from a list of letters I provide it, and checks to make sure that the word in the search does not show up. If that word does show up, it starts rewriting some letters. Eventually, it creates a wordsearch without the word that you're searching for. More info:
