MastermindThis week we're joining.

Game:  There are 5 random words below. Join two of them to create a new concept.  Explain what that concept is.

  • president
  • list
  • minute
  • earth
  • chart

Challenge:  For extra challenge, make up a history for how the concept came to have this name as well

Strategy: Sometimes the joining of two seemingly unrelated words can create an interesting new concept.  Fon insance, a dead ringer is a term meaning a fairly exact duplicate.  It's history actually comes from horse racing.  Normally the concept comes first, then we come up with a word combination to describe or refer to it but it can be quite fun to try and go in the other direction.
