What rubbish about blind people. My point is that when you're playing a conundrum, you're given a mixed-up 9-letter word already ready, calling for a fast reaction to solve it ahead of your opponents (OK, it might be slightly different in terms of the audition).

Whereas, if the conundrum was just put out a letter at a time, that's basically the same as a normal letters game with the only difference being that you have the knowledge of knowing that there is a guaranteed 9-letter word in that selection. That's the point I'm making.
I thought the point you were making was that conundrums only work when presented visually, hence why you couldn't fathom how it would work over the telephone. If they only work visually, this excludes blind people from participating.

You follow?

No, of course you don't.

Cheers.

Surely there's people you don't like though, people who you'd find it funny if they messed up and ended up with egg on their face? That's all I'm on about. The fact that she's a woman is irrelevant, I'm not sure why you keep mentioning it.

I'm tempted to apply again, as I lost to D O'D on my first appearance, and while in a worse medical state than I am now. Maybe Damien or others can advise me on how this would be regarded?
