Today’s Wordle #595 Hint, Clues And Answer For Saturday, February 4th
We’ve arrived at the first Saturday of February. Hopefully you’ve kicked off the weekend in style, or at least with a Wordle in the bag. It’s still the dead of winter, but we’re finally getting some less-wintery temperatures, with highs in the low 50s—which is basically summertime compared to all the below-freezing weather we’ve been having.
I thought we’d kick things off today with a bit of history. Specifically, two famous people born on this day long ago:
Rosa Parks was born on Feb. 4th, 1913. Parks became famous as a Civil Rights activist during the Montgomery bus boycott when she refused to vacate a bus to make room for white passengers. She was arrested for her civil disobedience and became the public face of the challenge to Alabama’s loathsome segregation laws.
Alice Cooper was also born on Feb. 4th—though decades later in 1948. Born Vincent Damon Furnier, Cooper became a famous rockstar and showman and a raging alcoholic before sobering up and becoming . . . a pretty normal dude named Alice. The shock-rocker now lives in Phoenix, AZ where he runs charities, plays golf and has a radio show. He’s also a born-again Christian.
Alright, let’s do this Wordle!
How To Solve Today’s Wordle
The Hint: Dim.
The Clue: This word starts with a vowel.
The Answer (Spoilers):
This was actually kind of a tricky Wordle today. In fact, it was so tricky that I thought for sure I had at least tied Wordle Bot. Alas, the fiendish AI got today’s in just three (with a heaping pile of luck, quite frankly).
Tread got me down to 143 remaining solutions, which isn’t terrible but isn’t great, either. Stout shaved that down to just seven. Still, seven is a lot and my next guess, quilt—however marvelous—only cut that number to 1.
From here it took me a while to come up with the final answer. Unlit is just one of those odd words you don’t think about much. It’s not that it’s archaic or uncommon. You just usually here lit or dark. Rarely unlit. Oh well. That’s zero points for 4 guesses and -1 for losing to the Bot, for a grand total of -1.
