But faster cheating than waiting for tomorrow's paper.

No, no, merely the strategic out-sourcing of linguistic aptitudinal technology in order to proactively maximize one's temporal and intellectual efficacy.

not to break up this instructive dialog or nothin', but using OneLook in this way is just the same as using any Crossword Dictionary, be it online or brick & mortar -- it merely admits defeat and shortcuts waiting for tomorrow's paper.
