TGIF! It’s 2XP Friday which means if you play a competitive Wordle (see rules below) you get twice as many points for winning, and you lose twice as many points for losing.
Wordle today is a bit of a whirlpool too. I’m curious as to how sneaky people found this!
Anyway, I have yesterday’s puzzle and the answer below, so we’ll do that and then switch over to Wordle today.
It cannot be seen, it cannot be felt, it cannot be heard, it cannot be smelled.
It lies behind the stars and under the hills, filling empty holes.
Comes first and follows, ends life, kills laughter.
Well, let’s do this Wordle!

Wordle Bot Analysis
My guessing game started strong today but stumbled a bit in the middle. panic She brought me two yellow boxes and reduced the remaining solutions to just 32. Unfortunately, even though all the new letters are guessed on my second guess –pouty –I still have eight words left. Many of these, as far as I know, started with “BA” and you guessed it basal Although it might have been a smart guess basil instead of. However, luck was on my side, and I was left with only one – very vague – word: Balsa In order to win!
Today’s result: I get zero points for guessing in four and -1 for losing to a robot that guessed in only three in some way. Since it’s Friday 2XP that means I get -2 today. helpless!
The origin of the word Wordle today
The word “balsa” comes from the Spanish language, referring to a type of wood known for its lightness and buoyancy. The term “balsa” is ultimately derived from the Old Spanish word “balso,” which came from the Late Latin word “balsus.” The word “Balsus” originally meant “inflated” or “inflated” and was later used to describe a raft or floating tool made of light wood and buoyancy.
It is likely that the Latin word “balsus” itself came from a Gallic or Celtic source, as evidenced by similar words in other Celtic languages. The Gaelic word “balisos” or “balsos” refers to a raft or float, and is thought to have influenced the development of the Spanish term “balsa”.
Over time, the word “balsa” has spread beyond the Spanish language and has become internationally recognized as a name for a lightweight wood used in many applications, including model building, construction, and flotation devices. Today, “balsa” is a term commonly used in English and many other languages to refer to both wood and products made from it.
