WORD PUZZLES

I don't know about some of you but I have found that some of the word puzzles are not correct - for instance: the saying is STANDUP DOUBLE not STANDING DOUBLE in baseball and tonights puzzle had one that I have always known it as TIME HEALS ALL WOUNDS - not TIME HEALS ALL THINGS - maybe we in Michigan just know things different then in other parts of the world. Anybody else have a view on this subject?

I just figured that whoever was making them up had a regional bent...and I don't think everyone gets the exact same list of words anyway. But I'm from Michigan originally, so maybe it is a mid-western thing

I do the Word Puzzles ad enjoy them, but being a Brit most of them are quite alien to me anyway! I still haven't a clue what half of the phrases mean once I get them right! I must admit though the ones I do find a little easier sometimes contain phrases that slightly differ from the British version, but I just guess that's language for you!!

I haven't had many problems with the WordPuzzles that weren't simply due to the fact that I do not know as much as I wish I did. That having been said, I do often wonder where certain phrases come from, as I have many times not heard of them before filling in the puzzle.

I am in the UK, and I have to say that even in this small country *sayings or phrases* tend to differ slightly depending on what part of the country you reside in. So it makes sense to me that the same will happen the world over.
Having said that, I fail to have heard some of them, even when I have the answer already lol. I just except it as it is

Here in the South (Tennessee) we also say time heals all wounds. I noticed the difference myself. It's not a regional thing just who ever wrote the puzzle got confused or something...

I thought it was "time wounds all heels". yes, they have dropped the ball on a few, like the cited answers, but i still love the word puzzles and have a bigger issue with the obvious cheaters who are posting unreal numbers and times. I know work is underway to further address them, but they still bug me. I guess winning is more important than how you win, that is the ethic we are seeing all too often in the world as it exists today.

I too noticed several incorrect answers on word round definitions.
