  1. not in bad shape. in good nick no doubt. just not a perfect fit.
  2. definitely getting closer to the overall thrust of this one but not the same yet.
  3. hey hey Wilson - your answer is illuminating as usual but you will need an altogether different flight path/approach for this one.
  4. sorry fabpig, DD already registered the intended answer.
  5. of course, the tide turns, you got my drift...
  6. for the three answers above: yes, yes, no. huh? staggering I know but you cant sway me otherwise. rock on...
  7. This balancing act, will totally depend And as a result, adds up in the end It's not very nice, on average you'll see By definition though, intending to be In a timely manner, it goes with the flow Foreshadowed events, shocking you know At peak performance in every instance And all just a phase when going the distance On the right path as a matter of convention Or otherwise orient, toward heaven's ascension So now go figure, your brain time to wrack One answer remains, hope it you will crack Links to similar ones from before: http://brainden.com/forum/index.php?/topic/11427-bottoms-up, http://brainden.com/forum/index.php?/topic/10676-hot-headed, http://brainden.com/forum/index.php?/topic/9818-forsaken, http://brainden.com/forum/index.php?/topic/9745-same-sounding, http://brainden.com/forum/index.php?/topic/9526-sword-play, http://brainden.com/forum/index.php?/topic/10888-same-old-same-old.
  8. woot woot - DD - well played only the final answer remains. may need to consider the setting when this one started.
  9. hey hey DD - indeed great to see you here. did not fully think this one out re the many synonyms/near synonyms that fit both directions of the clue. your first definitely falls in that category. usually try to put some clue that makes the answer more definitive. thought the two directions to be enough. oops. the next one in the wings is better I promise. thanks you guys for staying with it.
  10. that is indeed a fine answer. fits both the direction established in posts #23 and #31 as well as the last 1/4 of the couplet as in post #34 (especially with the original version). so very close to the answer needed am ashamed to say you still need another. but you're right there. EDIT: in rereading post #23, it similarly fits the last 1/4 of the couplet as well - rats
  11. i agree, tho sometimes the next day i find myself questioning that conviction.
  12. nope, that wasn't a hint, just a play on your previous response. close again from the other direction. perhaps combining the two? rewrite: For certain parts of speech, they're commonly portrayed Some just acting out, behaviors aptly displayed
  13. i cant fully visualize this just yet but think the ant can travel ever so slightly shorter than kukupai's answer above EDIT:
  14. guess you're about ready to put this one to rest. alas, not those but good to hear you're in it 'til the end. wanted to have a rewrite along with this reply but haven't quite been satisfied with what ive got thus far. y'all are still not far off and may get it before I can come up with a better clue.
  15. hate to break it to you, Wilson but not that.
  16. afraid I've forgotten mine - sorry for the delayed response. fear we're veering off the established theme. think fabpig's #23 is still closest yet. do see the path from that answer to your latest, Wilson. just not the one needed. might be possible to work backwards from the final answer to get this one - not sure.
  17. hey hey you two - all politics aside it looks like the fabpig has indeed set the scene quite nicely once again. both narrowing it down now. perfectly fitting answers to the couplet but am still looking for a different word.
  18. Hey Wilson - not my answer above. have been working on a better clue with no success. this one is a little weak I fear. next puzzle is better I think (yes, one in the wings). recognition of key words as much as meaning of the verse might better steer to the answer intended. and now think your spoiler issue is not viewing them but in composing? have you tried writing out the tags? typed out like this: [spoiler="spoiler title here within quotes"]hidden content here[/spoiler]or you could cut and paste like you did above and delete all but the spoiler tags. cheers, mate
