    B I T E S If 1 then T is middle letter. Not B or S from BALLS - 0 and second and fourth letters already established.

    I'll need help with the scoring. Especially since this is somewhat uncanny. Probably deserves extra credit but the OP would have to jump in yet he would be the recipient... R E P L Y dang! no joke.

    ENTER if 5 --> woot woot
  4. I'm game. I check in at least daily. Don't always sign in tho.
  5. Hmm, let's put the axes of the trapezae on each of two motorized pinions which would travel the full length of each of two racks in the time the swinger travelled from platform one to trapeze two or from trapeze two to platform two. Assuming the length of each rack is infinity/2, the platforms could be infinity apart.
  6. and a Spoiler for some additional thoughts:
  7. Spoiler for one calculation That is if my math holds up.
  8. without getting too political, what I meant was, just as the word spouse can mean either one, so does the parallel term in the answer.
  9. Don't think it could ever be possible
  10. Hey hey you two - Wilson, know it's been a while since you posted the above but gotta say, very clever as always - indeed too clever for me. And just reviewed these and only now do I fully get your previous stab at this one. Always been fifty fifty on the spelling of that arid wasteland or after meal treat. Love it. T - thanks for the bump. All's true in your spoiler above with the exception that the spouse is not gender specific. Cheers
  11. Well hello there Tylerj21 and welcome to the Den (though have seen you around for several weeks now). Have been meaning to rework that last line to both tie in and rhyme better but now no need. Well solved, sir.
  12. Immature and on the go If scared, proceed with caution When embarrassed, still you know Take heed before you run
  13. HAPPY NEW YEAR plasmid Spoiler for auld lang syne
  14. I have the 30 letters but not the 32 clues.
  15. Hey Thalia - am now sure the number of blanks are as TSL last posted ---NO----ART-------IS------KEY
  16. Spoiler for may be at least a partial proof along the lines of the formal proof
  17. Spoiler for having something to do....
  18. Hey Thalia - gonna go with three out of four correct in your two responses above. Not yet on the Arabian. Should have said that plasmid was half right on his last stab at that one. Spoiler for a little more on the Byzantine one
  19. Spoiler for maybe you are...
  20. you gotta know I've been wracking my brain on this one and cant stop. Gotta at least take a swing at it at this point... Spoiler for speaking softly
  21. hey T - realized the Andalusian is a horse as well as an adjective describing a certain population so the mount bit along with "fast track" is just a smoke screen. Mount of a different kind is relevant to the answer. Also, these Andalusians are not contemporary. And finally, since this one is a toughie, it might be best to attack the meaning of "fast track" first (again nothing re horses). And your second one's not the same as mine tho mine is a food stuff. hey plasmid - your first above, wellll, nah your second one is very good and potentially an alternative. My "spouse" is either he or she and the third just aint twisted enough also a good pun Wilson but canter gris.
