Spoiler for Ring Prediction

think this one is a no. Each of the two words in the answer are definite synonyms. Just maybe not the first definitions/unexpected parts of speech/slang/etc.

Spoiler for Ring Prediction - try

well, maybe t_l, but different than what I have. not real sure of the connection between the second word of the clue and the second word of your answer.

Spoiler for I was thinking

Eh well. Try a few more.

"There's no such thing as 'one, true way'; the only answers worth having are the ones you find for yourself; leave the world better than you found it. Love, freedom, and the chance to do some good -- they're the things worth living and dying for, and if you aren't willing to die for the things worth living for, you might as well turn in your membership in the human race." -- Diana Tregarde in Burning Water by Mercedes Lackey

hey t_l - accept your argument and answer for the one from before. kinda see a connection with those two words in terms of an estimation as well.
can also make arguments for the two new answers as well. still have different ones in mind.

disclaimer - one of the words in my answer for the "Jealous Nut" clue is more of a type than a synonomous word. sorry bout that. all other connections are definitie synonyms.

Also - where A B --> C D; A and C, B and D , C and D are synonomous BUT any three are not necessarily so.

Spoiler for Or even.

that one works and was what I had, too.

Spoiler for knowing u...clean sweep

wouldn't put it past me on the last one. this one is different. the two words to the answer I have in mind might be considered doubly synonomous; with two completely different definitions

sorry, been neglecting this[/spoiler]

thanks for mentioning but no worries. I have been somewhat, also. knew this one was pretty tough. partially because it was quite difficult to come up with qualifying answers. Also, because of that, I thought there wouldn't be so many alternatives. maybe just a bad puzzle.

Spoiler for Expired Account

hey benjer3 - thanks for playing. I was skeptical of the relationship between the second words but looked up account and discovered "to account for" something can mean to put out of action; kill. So, okay. Nice
