 1) I could only manage 6. 2) 33 × 2 Atomic Number for Dysprosium Host races rut Sechsundsechzig (German) International direct dialing code for Thailand Total Number of books in the Bible World Record For Number of Hotdogs eaten in fifteen minutes 1 is wrong and I don’t think I can give you 2 yet because ‘host races rut’ clearly isn’t right :P Originally posted by funiax:1) I could only manage 5. 2) 33 × 2 Atomic Number for Dysprosium Historic Route Sechsundsechzig (German) International direct dialing code for Thailand Total Number of books in the Bible World Record For Number of Hotdogs eaten in fifteen minutes is correct and you’re missing one very important word out for #2. Originally posted by MaistlinRajere:‘A Historic Route’? Nope. Historic U.S. Route? Originally posted by Bluji:Historic U.S. Route? Yes. I don’t know what I’m going to do about points now because I really don’t want to give 0.25 of a point. Also, no puzzle tonight :( Aw, I’m too late.. I suppose splitting it 33/34 of a point for me and 1/34 for Bluji would be fair since that’s how many words we each added in.

I think you should give it all to funiax. Sorry Blu, I’m gonna give it all to funiax. :P Originally posted by SamsterSamster:Sorry Blu, I’m gonna give it all to funiax. :P I will remember this >:D Puzzle 121: Answer both of these for a point. 1) Which four letter word can be placed before all the following words? WATER, COLOURED, CUT, WOOD, COMB, BOWL 2) Which of these letters is the odd one out? A, F, H, K, L, N Number one is rose Number two could be a lot of things. I’ll go the easy route and say A because it’s the only vowel 2 A because it a vowel or would it be that simple 2) L because it takes 2 lines to write as compared to 3 lines with the other letters 2 is N. Hint: the alphabetical ordering is accidental. thirdslip and afklol both get a point. I figured the fact that A, F, H, K & L all appear on the second row of a keyboard (in that order, too) was a better answer. Then again, maybe you just gave us 6 randomly selected letters and awarded the half point to whoever gave the best reason. No, that was genuinely the intended reason.
