    Personally, it sounds like Icy.Blitz is a lot more intelligent than StealDragon, but just to clarify, why don't we have an intelligence contest? The first one of you who can tell me what "Zounds" means wins my respect, cause I remember having to look through 5 separate shakespeare books when I was in highschool to find out what it meant.

    *Hint- It's not on dictionary dot com, or for that matter any other dictionary-esque website.
    zounds Pronunciation (zoundz)
    interj.
    Used to express anger, surprise, or indignation.
    [Shortening and alteration of God's wounds!.]

    Congratulations! Even though you are neither Icy dude or Dragonator or whatever, you still managed to find an annoying definition. The word actually stems from people's idea of "Christ's wounds" as an abbreviation back in the 1500's day. Basically, instead of saying "Christ's Wounds" you could abbreviate it to Chur-ounds, which somehow turned into Zounds.

    I guess I'll have to give you a new word..... uh..... lemme see....... what is the definition of "Leets", and I don't mean Elites. This is a very hard challeng, so anybody who's up to it may participate.

    - A portion; a list, esp. a list of candidates for an office.
    - (Eng. Hist.) A court-leet; the district within the jurisdiction of a court-leet; the day on which a court-leet is held.
    Leet ale

    You are very close, although wrong. You have part of the definition, but it is not explained fully. Leets are Courts to quote "Held by the Lord of the manner" in the sense that they are unjust courts. If I put you on trial for breathing, that would be a Leet, especially because I am a king. And no, I did not add that last part to justify myself without having to delete any of my original post ramble ramble ramble.......

    Oh, and by the way, the other definitions you have are not middle Elizibethan. I'm not sure if I mentioned this before or not, but these are all Shakespearean terms. Anyways, I guess I should try a new, harder word. How about "languish". Sound good?
