Very Random Thought of The Day

Scrabble!!!!

I was thinking about Scrabble, the board game. And then I started wondering how the hell German speaking people can play Scrabble. German words are soooooooooooo long.

Check this word out, “Rechtsschutzversicherungsgesellschaften.”

Or how ’bout this one, Freundschaftsbezeigungen.” 

I’m not making this shit up. These are real German words!

The official rules of Scrabble dictate that each player takes 7 letters to start the game. I’m guessing there are hardly even any German words that only have 7 letters in them. WTF? And then, with, let’s say, the average German word being about 20 letters long, you’d need to be playing on one hell of a gigantic over-sized board. I’m just not grasping how it’s possible.

Spending the rest of the day trying to wrap my brain around this.
