And as before - show your math for full credit.

okay okay! Hit me with a wet fish often enough, then serve it to me on a platter....

:D

x=kiss

ie

s (double curves in back)

x= variable= var

ie =for example

s= double curve in back

i just can't seem to think of anything else to let me put an 'n' in there...

Good reasoning chicory. Finally a new spin on X. Really think the solution for X will establish a baseline for solving the rest of the puzzle.

X = variable = var. is not it. So varies isnt either. Really good thinking tho. As you point out, you did go from two ins to none.

That's amazing chic. Am really starting to understand that creating these type of riddles are easier than solving them. As good as the reasoning is you cant

just switch two letters.

that is how you pronounce it isnt it, or is that gneiss. not it.

x=no,not

n in

ei back(wards) for example

ss

not neiss (gneiss)? (the g was invisible)

Help! Where is everybody?

Glad you came back. No to No. You played all along with the last quickie. Am trying to make these things cumulative (which is not to hard as I'm learning with you).

Not it, but you do have something here that is extremely important.

When you have the riddle solved it will "READ" as the phrase and not necessarily spell it.

Decided to edit that as a hint.

And as before - show your math for full credit.

x=y (curves)

two curves =s

ys=wise

n

back=up?

I need to go back and remind myself what's already gotten

That is a good start. Going back will fill in a few blanks and get you up to speed.

x = y tho uniquely creative is not it. s and n are correct. back=up is not.

x=10

in=n

for example ie

double curves in back s

Super close!!!!

X = 10 = TEN is correct. just need to finalize the rest. It's not tennies or the like. Remember, it's a phrase

10 was clever. I thought:

x=o (hugs/kisses or tic tac toe)

s

n

ie

Okees, let me take a stab at this..was worried it may have been solved before I got here...

X two curves in back for example

X=spot (X marks the spot)=O

two curves=S

in=N

back=directional

for=4=A in l33t

example=X

OSNAX=AXOSN...I've apparently got nothin'

I'll keep tryin' though.

I do love these POW's of yours...starting to see how you play.

back=directional which is correct. (also s and n are correct as established previously) use this with some of the most recent past posts and slam!

Closer yet. I expect that you would have heard this phrase that is the answer.

Wait, that doesn't work. Scratch that.

in the spin on "ie" but other than that, all is logical and creative, just not exactly precise so not the correct phrase.

really appreciate the thought process

Very well riddled, plainglazed. Though I am still fond of my sine wave...
