    I’ve come close, but there are always a few that leave me perpetually puzzled.

    If you have, do you remember when? I’ll mark it on my calendar should I ever make it across the finish line. Lol

    I used to do a few crossword puzzles (online) I'm not sure if it was the NYTimes or not. On the one hand it improves your vocabulary (possibly) and keeps the mind active but at times it just pisses you off when you figure out a particularly hard one when you see the answer.

    If it's "legitimate" I just take it as a hard puzzle and that's OK. When it's something that the puzzle creator just made up, I don't enjoy it as much. You know when it's just a play on words or a play on sounds and the connection with the clue turns out to be very tenuous then I question the usefulness of crossword puzzles.

    We should see if we can (as a group on this site) finish one together. I could find one and add it here, and see how far we get.
