It pulls words randomly from those that have not been posted this cycle, so
it has to show every word before it goes back to the start.

We had gone through a big chunk of the wordlist when we received a ton of
new words two years in a row. That means that the system will have to go
through all the new ones before it will be done.

If we keep adding 360+ words a year we might never get back to the base TKD
words... ;)
