You must not think me necessarily foolish because I am facetious,  nor will I consider you necessarily wise because you are grave.  Sydney Smith.

Spoiler for First and fourth


yes and yes, Y-san. well done. as to the rest, suspect your example might have come from one of the clues? if so (or not) will say the rest of the answers come from general synonyms vs examples/types/associations.

Spoiler for 6th


am glad you stuck with that one fp, right on.

Spoiler for Update


ps - i see you there Y-san

Yeah...I was attempting to log on to post the answer to 2 but my netbook decided that was too many programs to run simultaneously and died. Oh well...

Question: For the 7th one, am I right in thinking "collapsed" is the indicative word? I don't like to assume (unless it's going to be followed by a rigorous math proof ;P)...you know what they say about 'when you assume...' that is somewhat similar to this puzzle...

Women are definitely stronger. We are [Fe]males, after all...

Some of what makes me me is real, some of what makes me me is imaginary...I guess I'm just complex. ;P

you got it. down to the last four.

guess you could say fabpig cut you off at the knees... as for your question, the direction to subtract is "collapsed in" as a(nother word for) heap is not a verb. okay, not an adjective either. being fairly generous with the hints as the synonym for "barely alive" is not the most common word but think well within the vocab of your average BrainDenner. - Ich bin ein.... umhhhhh donuts. sorry, not a clue. just some train of thought rambling.

This one is definitely stimulating my mind.
Thanks for the post!

and thank you for the compliment. welcome to BrainDen, maSkraP!

*Shrugs* actually it's probably more accurate to say my CPU cut me off at the knees...

And the word I was confused about was "barely", which I know is not taking away, but to me, neither really is "collapsed"...the matter is still there, just in a scrunched up fashion...but that's probably just me. :blush:

Spoiler for My vocabulary is not particularly exiguous...


I'm running into the 'as I try to do these, I keep coming up with more of them syndrome'... ^_^

shinless either way, eh? and the barely/collapsed issue i get, too. maybe collapsed as in fell apart or better perhaps - disintegrated. still a stretch i agree. a little riddling license to make the clues somewhat sensible is sometimes in order (as is punctuation, etc.). and am of course thankful for your munificent vocabulary. nicely figured, Y-san.

Spoiler for Second to last...

and correct again, of course. the two r's kept me thinking i had messed up this clue.
