Calm / Fit

OR

Slack / Act

OR

Casual / Art (another stretch)

OR

Rest / Action ?

...

Putting two of them together--

Rest / Act is probably better than the two it came from.

Present / Past (passed)

yeah, gonna pass on that stretch. tho mine's not so great jfor this one either.

1) Thankyou for the welcome.

2) Call me slickfuzz if you wish, but be VERY CAREFUL how you pronounce it. May I call you simpleshiny or unadornedvitreouscoated ? lol.

3) Yeah, the answer was a bit tenuous. My thinking was along the lines (eg) "the outbreak of flu spread countywide"

Best wishes,

slizz (<-------- and if you don't get that, I am NOT explaining it)

whoops ........Something gone wrong here, should have been on reply. sorry

your first half matches mine and I like the combined last one as another alternative

While I'm stretching, I might as well go all out.

Further / End

I guess no.

not it EDM

flow close

hmm, an almost alternative. gonna say the opposite relationship needs to be a little stronger

1. more reason

2. relaxed scene - calm storm by fabpig and rest act by Molly Mae and _____

3. remains true - left right - by Thalia

4. stops payment - halts advances and withdrawals deposits- by Thalia and _____

5. high chair - extreme moderate by Mollie Mae

6. common sale

7. subject closed - open shut - by mojobrain

8. general demand - approximate exact by t_mo and DudleyDude

9. deliberately starve - slow fast by DudleyDude

10. current approach

11. still tacky - quiet loud - by EDM

12. elementary compound - basic complex - by Thalia

- Molly Mae had half of 2. and EDM just about half of 10.

old new....???

not that, sorry

addition deduction

yes indeed! I was thinking just increase or gain but think yours is most definitive as opposites. Nicely figured.

Take / Bring

dont think so M M.

Only three to go. Molly Mae had and EDM just about Noone's gotten 6. which I thought would be one of the easier ones.

running / standing

gonna say a bit too much of a stretch

gross / net ?

nope, not looking for that, fabpig.

Public / Private

personally, cant make the relationship between the second words

I haven't looked at other answers...Here are my guesses. Some I'm pretty sure about, some are a stretch...

1. addition/deduction

2. softened/set

3. leftovers/whole

4. arrest/release

6. accepted/discounted

7. open/shut

8. vague/direct

9. chewed over/eschewed

10. ?

11. stationary/outdated

12. basic/complicated

Yes to 1. Yet another alternative to 2. Think 3. and 4. are a little of a stretch on the synonyms side. No to 5. I really like 6. Similar in a way but different than mine and perfectly valid. Yes to 7. Yet another alternative for 8. And I think there are better ones for the rest. Good stuff, onetruth

1. more reason - addition (or increase) deduction by fabpig

2. relaxed scene - calm storm by fabpig and rest act by Molly Mae and softened set by onetruth and _____

3. remains true - left right - by Thalia

4. stops payment - halts advances and withdrawals deposits- by Thalia and _____

5. high chair - extreme moderate by Mollie Mae

6. common sale - accepted discounted by onetruth and _____

7. subject closed - open shut - by mojobrain

8. general demand - approximate exact by t_mo and DudleyDude and vague direct by onetruth

9. deliberately starve - slow fast by DudleyDude

10. current approach

11. still tacky - quiet loud - by EDM

12. elementary compound - basic complex - by Thalia
