Not quite sure how it happened, but I found myself on Quora this morning, looking to see if anyone had written anything about word searches.
Lo and behold, this fascinating question arose:
What is the maximum number of English words that can be fit into a 5x5 word search?
It's interesting to think about the problem that way round, where the words aren't specified and instead there is complete freedom to use whatever words you like.
I sense another little mini-project coming on.
