Question

Guest

And now for something completely different.

Inspired by hugemonkey's I've created five words or word phrases (indicated in parentheses).

Each list of puzzle words should be put together to make the answer word/word phrase.

Each of the answers represents a danger to our current world and society. (Of course, there are many dangers in the world, I just chose a few.)

Here is an example of how the puzzle works:

Example Puzzle.. = ......Translation

writing fluid ......... = ......... ink

signal ................ = ......... cue

cove .................. = ......... bay

eschew ................ = ......... shun

ink + cue + bay + shun = incubation

Let me know what you think of these... and good luck! :D

Puzzle 1 (1 word)

subterranean mammal

radio

Puzzle 2 (2 words)

unused

see-through

upright position

Puzzle 3 (2 words)

seed extract

medicine

Puzzle 4 (1 word)

Japanese sash

metropolis

Puzzle 5 (1 word)

above

snap

not me

rest

eschew

#4 Obicity / /??? I don't know what is it :blush:, the dictionary doesn't contain//

I'm working on the others, just posted before someone beat me :rolleyes:

Wow, that is not what I intended, because each line is one part of the clue, and you broke it up ito may more clues, but you did it so well it works and I'm giving you extra credit for that one! :thumbsup:

Still looking for the original answer though...

Plant?

Yay! you got it!

"plant", from the clue "upright position", as in plant your feet on the ground, plant a flag on the moon, etc.
