Hey Jkb and Wilson, sorry I've neglected this one. Yesterday being a "holiday" here, am expected to squeeze two days of work into one. Had intended to much earlier give some direction. This is more of a puzzle than a riddle. One where there will be a list of answers. The "endless chain" of words just obfuscates where each "clue" starts. May give some more ideas about the structure but am thinking it will become evident after two are solved next to each other.

Hey PG. Struggling even more than usual with this one.

Good Morning, just keeping this one alive ;)

NEIN! (nothing to do with the crazy shape ;) )

And good morning MrsP, thanks for the promotion!

I first thought that you maybe took normal riddles and then ran them through an online translator and then back again into English but I couldn't figure anything out by thinking that way. And Wilson's guess of 'nine' made me think of Lennon saying 'number nine' over and over in Revolution 9 (Beatles on my mind today

:) ) so I thought maybe a list of song titles that have been double translated but I couldn't find much that way either. So I decided to move on to maybe cryptic clues since they tend to be weirdly worded anyway. It's a big stretch, but it's all I have at the moment.

Is not necessary a bit of closed

a bit of closed -> cLOSEd -> lose

is not necessary (i.e., is unneeded) ->lose

lose?

Hey DD-

not that, in fact, there really are not any cryptic construction style/charade-like play on words at all in this one. Cool idea re the online translator but not that either. And not the song title list. Good thoughts all, please keep at it.

Just trying to isolate "phrases" to try to find possible clues with answers.

underwater projectile -> torpedo

to deeply inhale -> gasp

closed orb -> globe, ball

Yeah, this is me grasping at straws :wacko:

cellular invertion= phone or grout

similar to floor covering= concrete, cork, stone

glorious lamps=sun ,stars

dehyrated calcified = bones, trees

heavenward to deeply= outer space, space

the first is the correct interpretation, not the whole answer for that one tho.

also...

only one of the cellular invention is the correct interpretation and will throw in that calcified remain = bone

okkie......

nope, the other one.

about chess= moves

heavenward=upward

in the barricade=caught, stopped

deeply inhale=gasp, breathe

researcher is not nessary=known

this particular instance= now

And..

sorry Jkb, none of those. gonna say this but dont give it much mind until later or the end - half of the interpretation is half right for the heavenward interpretation(s).

A race/runner?

not that Wilson. there is a theme for this list but it is very general.

these are idioms or common sayings that have synonyms or misinterpretations substituted?

kinda dehyrated per calcified remain = dry as a bone (or bone dry)

in the lead about chess heavenward = check up

poke with a trident thus kaput = fork over?

Awesome catch HM, I've been staring at these since he first posted and couldn't come up with anything.

that "Put a fork in it, it's done" might be a better interpretation.
