Very well said. I decided to create it because some of you were getting a bit perplexed by my seemingly unconnected links in the main thread. And here is the latest of them.

Electronics, DeVry University

A component of early electronics was the thermionic valve. In 1906, Lee De Forest invented the Triode valve. DeVry University was originally named DeForest Training School by its founder (after whom it is now called) who was a friend and colleague of De Forest.

If you look hard enough, you will find a link between pretty much everything. If you want, please suggest a couple of words separated by a comma (see the examples in this thread) and I will endeavour to create the link. Some will be complex, and others will be simple.

Horse, Shuttle

Horses compete in the Badminton Horse Show. In the game of Badminton, the object hit over the net is a shuttlecock. The shuttlecock is sometimes referred to by the shortened form of its name, the Shuttle.

Very well done, my thoughts were elsewhere.

That was a relatively simple one.

Dare I ask about the whereabouts of your thoughts?

To stop you all scratching your heads in bewilderment, here is the answer to my question I posed earlier. The question was Who is the phrase little grey cells associated with? And the answer: Agatha Christie's Belgian detective character, Hercule Poirot.

Veno, Altrincham

Sir William Henry Veno was the inventor of Veno's Cough Syrup. He became Mayor of Altrincham in later life.

I found many unrelated posts in Word Association hence I unsubscribed from that thread long ago. LOL.
Now that Dwarf has given his explanation, I understood what your links meant in that thread. However, I still dont agree with many useless posts in which the words DO NOT co-relate.

I was, and continue to follow the rule of the game from the 1st post. Which was post 1 word. Believe me, phrases or 2 words have come to mind, but 1 word means you have an idea where the thread is going, but the next posters word can take it on a completely different course. A Guy
