  • I'm gonna guess they have...Duff in common. >.>

    Duffman of The Simpsons

    Duff McKagan of Guns'n'Roses

    and um...

    People carry their golf clubs in duffel bags?

    BAH!

    BAH I SAY!
  • Oh Bah back at yah.
    You're right but I think that duff is a kind of bad shot in golf. I'll consult my good friend Charger on that.
    In the mean time please take the floor.

    Aha! Makes sense. >.>

    Anyway...What do these have in common?

    Gentlemen
    Elevator Attendants
    Door Frames

    :huh:

  • Let me guess, being a perfect gentleman myself I never pick my nose. The elevator attendant he wears gloves right? And finally the door frame is made out of boards.

    So, the answer, quite obviously, is "Holding the door".
  • I hoped it was obvious! I was getting worried!

    Floor's yours, manly man!
  • Thank you mister Hippie, please notice that the ne in man ne man is pronounced as by the Knights of Neh.

    Now we move on to the tripplets

    What does:

    Coffee,

    The APi arcade

    and Drills,

    have in common?
  • Pssh! Won't stop me from calling you manly man!

    As for the question...I dunno!
  • What does coffee, the APi arcade and drills have in common? :g:
    Drinking caffeine, obsessive playing and grinding noises.

    They all keep you awake at night or make you lose sleep?
    (If that's right, what are your neighbors doing drilling at night?)
  • Correct you are, the floor is yours.

    what are your neighbors doing drilling at night?[/b]

    You tell me! :wacko:

  • I was going to post an NFL question, but I guess it might not be common knowledge around the world. <_< <br />
    So... I'll try this easier one.

    Pot

    Gumby
  • Guess you could throw "Rexs' favourite foods" in there as well :D

    Clay!
  • Yes, my fixated friend. These are things that are made of clay.

    Yep, JDM is right, just up to manne to confirm now. Nice work JDM. :clap:
  • Quite interesting, but I was reffering to the popes MAIL in perticular, not the vatican as a whole. Sorry, wrong
  • Im kind of stealing here, jdm can have it if he wants but is it once again... "Independence"

    Texas : Texas, the independant state retaining their right to withdraw from the union

    Popes Mail: Has his own individual mail service as the Vatican is an Independent country and therefore the popes mail is independant.

    His Holiness Papal Name

  • No,
    it's great that you are supportive of jdm and all but to tell you the truth I did not have the slightest idea that Texas had some sort of independence right and therefore, by default , that can not be the answer I'm looking for.
    What else is Texas known for? :g:


    OK, this edit may spark things up....

    Rex's' head is made of skull,
    of what might Texas be full...
  • OK, you guys wont get this.
    The answer I was lookig for is "Alot of Bull!"

    Texas-full of bull
    The popes mail is called a bull when he sends out a sort of rant,
    and the the sexual escapades of a 15 year old boy are usually alot of bull too.

    So, with that said and done I leave the floor to whom ever wishes to go next.
  • Okay, this is the first time I've seen this thread. Just read all the way through it so I think I get what it's about.
    So on that note I'll give it a go...

    What does...
    Pele
    The Referee who sent off Wayne 'Shrek' Rooney in the FIFA World Cup Quarter Final between England and Portugal
    and David Beckham of England
    all have in common? :g:

    I hope I've done that right :blink:



    Okay, I don't know if anyone has actually looked at this yet, or at least thought about it. Anyway, I was going to give you all a BIG clue but it would've made it far too easy so instead I'm going to give you a clue along the same lines as my original clue but more er general so to speak.
    Anyway, to help you with my three things try thinking about...

    Geography

    Hope that helps a little :g:
  • Let me see... :g:

    Don't know a whole lot about soccer (that's what we call it) <_< but I'll take a guess. I've heard of Pele and Beckham and I saw the match in question but that doesn't help me much.<br />
    Ummm, they all failed geography in school?
    Wait, I know. They all vacation in Hawaii?
    They all have Brazilian wives? :blink:
  • [b]He he he, Charger. I don't think Posh is Brasillian but good guess.

    I've been doing some research and to tell you the truth I can't find anything obviously linking theese men together.

    The closest clue I got is New York.
    Pel
  • I just realised I have made possibly the biggest blunder ever.
    It should have read like this

    What does...
    Diego Maradonna
    The Referee who sent off Wayne 'Shrek' Rooney in the FIFA World Cup Quarter Final between England and Portugal
    and David Beckham of England
    all have in common? :g:

    I shall now go and hang my head in shame and hide until possibly the next World Cup or at least Euro2008 :bag:

    p.s. you should all get the answer straight away now. How on :censored: Earth did I confuse Pele and Maradonna? If I drank I could've at least blamed it on booze...

  • I'm still baffled by this.

    Maradona and Elizondo are both from Argentina and has taken part of a world cup final. Beckham has not.
    Beckham plays for Madrid, Maradona has played for Barcelona both teams are Spannish. Elizondo has (as far as I know) never been much of a football player.

    Beckham recieved a red card - got blamed for Englands loss
    Elizondo gave Rooney a red card - got blamed?
    Can't remember that Maradona ever got sent off in an important game...


    What am I missing here? :g:
  • You're oh so close there Man. If you don't get this you'll kick yourself silly because it is sooo simple. You're overcomplicating it. Remember the clue, think GEOGRAPHY

    Just thought, to make it interesting I'm gonna put a time limit on this. If it's not been answered by around 12pm Wednesday UK time (1pm Western Europe time, er about 6am ish in parts of the US, dunno AUS time) then I'll post the answer, ok?



    OK, I'm guessing you're all stuck on this one so the answer is...

    Argentina

    You see, as pointed out by Manneman, Maradonna played for Argentina (most famous for the Hand of God goal against England)
    The Referee (Elizondo Horacio or whatever his name is) who sent off Shrek against Portugal at this years World Cup is Argentinian.
    And as for Beckham? Well technically there's TWO connections. The one I was looking for was that he got sent off in France '98 World Cup. Who did he get sent off against I hear you ask? Why no other than Argentina.
    The other possibility, which I would've accepted, is that he was sent off for Scum United (Sorry Manchester United) in the World Club Championships in South America. Who sent him off? Why none other than our "friend" who sent off Shrek in this years World Cup.

    So there you have it. Told you it was easy, lol :D

    So for the next one, how about something truly easy? In fact it's so easy that even little children could get the answer.

    Anyway...
    What is the connection between...
    a Giant Spider
    a Giant Snake
    and Dragons?

    Get thinking people...

    Well congrats...
    That didn't last long.
    I'm gonna be mean though :devilish: and ask if you can say in which books the Giant Spider, Giant Snake and Dragons appeared.
    First one to say that get's to have their turn at this game :clap:
    --------------------------------------------------------------Update----------------------------------------------------------------
    You have to give the FULL name of the books...
    i.e. Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone NOT the First Book
  • Well guess nobody can figure out which books these three creatures were in.
    The Giant Spider and the Giant Snake were both in the 3rd book Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
    The Dragons were in the 4th book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    Seem as nobody got it fully, I'll give it to Charger who DID work out the Harry Potter theme. I just wanted to see if Charger, or anyone else, could give the exact connection to the Harry Potter universe.

    Ah well, take it away Charger...

  • Thank you for the concession. I have seen all 4 movies but I never read any of the books and since you asked for books...

    Anyways, back to the game. This should be pretty simple.

    Cheese
    Sand
    Potato
  • Are they all part of your *secret* recipie for spunge-cake?
  • Manne, if I told you that, it wouldn't be a *secret* anymore, now would it?! :D

    I'll give it a few more guesses then I'll add a clue. Surely someone will get it before then.
  • All I can think of is something to do with the ground.

    Er, Potatoes are grown UNDER the ground
    Sand IS the ground
    and Cheese is made from like Cows and Goats that LIVE on the ground

    I seriously can't get this.
    All I can think of is that Cheese can be called Dairy (as in a dairy product)
    Potato can be called something else, but can't remember right now.
    Come on, give us a clue, pleeeaaase :crybaby:

    Your clue for potato is - Think preparation. :rolleyes:
    Your clue for cheese is - Think presentation. :g:
    Your clue for sand is - You don't get one. :D (That's a clue right there)
  • Ok, I am 90% sure its NOT this, but here is a connection I made...

    Potatoes - Make Shepards Pie

    Sheep + Shepards = Cheese

    Sandy soils are preferred for intensive dairy farming because of their excellent drainage characteristics.

    That should just about show you how spent I am on this one...

    Could do define what you mean by cheese "presentation" there charger?

    Don't doubt yourself. You are 100%! :D

    You all seem to be getting sidetracked on animals. Maybe it's a language thing? You might not call some of these things the same where you are from? Here is the dead give away clue...

    One is a "tool" I am fond of but hate to be using it.
  • I think Ive got it... you can Shovel them all...

    Shovel the potatoes to get them out of the ground.
    Use a cheese Shovel on the cheese.
    And of course Shovel the sand.

    Yes? No? Maybe?

    Im thinking shovel is in this somewhere...
  • When I'm thinking potatoe preparation I don't go as far back as digging it out of the ground. I start by peeling.
    But then Cheese you don't peel, you slice the cheese, right?
    You can slice potatoes, if your making fries or gratinating them.
    But then, sand-slicer? Only thing I can think of there is you might end up in the sand if you slice your shot in golf.


    Then there is the Majik track....
    Mr Potatoe Head,
    Cuts the Cheese,
    Hangs around the sandbox :D
  • Majik track. :laugh: That is hilarious! :clap:

    On your other guess, you are so close you can almost taste it. If you were any hotter you would spontaneously combust. Now, to just find the correct term...
  • Is it SHAVER?
    Not that I have any idea what that has to do with sand?
  • Not a shaver or a slicer or a shovel. But thinking about the "sand" will lead you to the answer.
  • What about wedge?

    Potato wedges?
    Wedges of cheese?
    Sand wedge (golf)?

    Bah...

  • Yah baby! Thats what I am talking about! Sweet, gotta love it... so its my go now I guess...

    Ok... clearly I was so out of it at five in the morning yesterday that I buggered up this topic completely... sorry everyone. Kind of got stuck on a thought and didnt go back from there. So here is your *real* three words.

    ---> A Perfect Answer
    ---> Death
    ---> Emotional Baggage


    There we go folks.
  • Do we need a clue then or have we just forgotten?

    Tell me if you need a clue and your wish shall be granted :)
  • Yup, I think a clue would be readily accepted.
    Preferably not a Cryptic clue either :angry:
  • Perfect answer = You hit it...
    Death = You consume it...
    Emotional Baggage = You wash it...

    Too bad, its cryptic... but actually...
  • Er, meat?

    As in you hit the meat with a cleaver to cut it
    you eat meat which is dead (usually anyway) so that's the death part
    emotional baggage and meat? er, you wash the meat to make sure it's clean before cooking it?

    Please let me be at least close.

    If not then Lethal is :devilish: EVIL :devilish:

  • I am :devilish: EVIL :devilish: sorry Jay!

    Nuff said...
  • Sooo...

    I'm going to make a wild guess. All have to do with heads?

    Perfect answer - Head on or nail on the head.
    Death - Deadhead
    Emotional baggage - Headcase

    I know this is probably wrong but you could give us an alternate clue while shooting down my answer! ;)


  • Your right charger!... In the sense that yes... you are WRONG. I guess I should give a small clue, charger you are definitely on the right track. If I were you I would move in a downwards direction from the head, with your answer.
  • er I'm think Chest then...

    er Chestbeater
    Deadman's Chest (as in Pirates of the Caribbean 2)
    and third one? I'm not quite sure about that one :wacko: Emotional Baggage and Chest? Er, what's the connection between those two? :g:

  • Arrr... methinks your off course with the chest there Jay, I meant downwards, as in much further downwards. Perhaps even... off the body...
  • Off the body? what as in the ground again? Didn't we already have the ground suggested? Or was that the last thing that you got right? It was sooo long ago now it seems like an eternity has gone by.

    I'm confused :wacko: Unfortunately, doesn't take much to do :crybaby:

    You are so close its beyond beleif there jay... perhaps if you can stop crying for a little you can get the answer! Quick, before some other scoundrel jumps on it... :harhar:
  • Would this be "dirt"??

    You hit paydirt
    Death = taking a dirt nap
    Emotional Baggage could maybe be "dirty laundry".. ?? Am I even close!?!?!?!?!? :blink:
  • Oooooooooh, *what have we got for her Johnnie!!!*

    It was;

    Dirt

    1. To Hit PayDirt
    2. Take a Dirt nap
    3. Dirty Laundry

    !!!

    Well done speedie, you are up!
  • YIPPEEE, I won!!!!!!!! :clap:

    I've said it before, but I'll say it again, while I'm not "aces" at answering these, I'm still much better at answering them than posing them, so Lethal, would you mind please taking my turn? You are obviously very good at posing them!! Thank you!!!!!!! :hug:
  • How on this EARTH did you get those answers? Typical that I'd help someone else get the answer :angry2: Would never in a million years of got that PayDirt one, never even heard of it as a word :wacko: Are you SURE that's even a word?

    Ah well, I'm determined to get the next one so everyone stay away or else... :boxing: lol
  • Aaaaaaw Jay, I'm sorry!! I guess I knew about paydirt 'cause I'M OLD!!! :D There are advantages to maturity ya know!! heeheeheee If we can get Lethal back in here, I promise to only look at what he poses with just one eye, I promise!! ;)

    Well now that just isn't fair. If we've gotta be like 30 or over to be able to answer these questions then how can people like me answer them when I'm still 7 years off being 30?

    As for only using 1 eye to look at the posts? Could you possibly squint with that one eye so you can only see like one line, or even one word, at a time? Pleeeaaase ^_^

  • Okie doke, here we go again... get ready for another brain melting one...

    Your three items are;

    - A receptor which activates osteoclasts
    - Number of dimensions (computer programming)
    - Drawn up in line abreast

    Thats right, its a spine tingler... heh heh heh.
    Well... not really, its actually pretty easy!
  • OK I found the connection.
    The word is RANK.
    A receptor which activates osteoclasts - RANK is an abbreviation for "Receptor Activator of Nuclear Factor κ B".
    Number of dimensions (computer programming) - RANK in programming "is usually a synonym for (or refers to) "number of dimensions"; thus, for instance, a bi-dimensional array has rank two, a three-dimensional array has rank three and so on."
    Drawn up in line abreast - RANK "is a line of military personnel, drawn up in line abreast (i.e. standing side by side)."

    So, Am I right? I must be.....surely.....come on.....am I? :blink: :wacko:
  • Wow, nice one there Jay, yep your right!

    Fire away.
  • I won????? I WON!!!!! I WON!!!!! I WON!!!!! :clap:
    Hehem, excuse me :blush:
    Right I'm gonna go away and think of something to REALLY bamboozle you all.
    I'll post something tomorrow because only got about 10 minutes left of my two hours I can use the computers.
    So check back tomorrow from about 4pm (GMT) onwards, ok?

    Edit: Friday 13:35 (GMT)

    Right here it is.
    Hopefully, this will bamboozle a few of you, but let's see.
    Er, if it turns out you DO know the answer straight away, could at least give it a full 24 hours before answering? It gives other people a chance to answer that way. So you can't answer straight away UNLESS you've NEVER answered one of these before, then you can have a go straight away. If you've answered before and you answer straight away then your answer won't be accepted whether it is right or wrong, ok?

    Anyway here are your three items...

    Polar Icecaps
    Monsoons
    Steam Engines


    What do those three items have in common? One word connects all three. What is the word and how does it connect the three items?

  • Wow. Those are some tough restrictions you are putting on the game. I thought anyone could play not just who you want to play. :g:
  • Well I wasn't sure how easy it would be. I tried to make it a bit hard, but then, looking at the clues, I thought maybe it seemed a bit easy. Hence, give other people a chance thing.
    Anyway, guess away now!!!!! :D
  • Water in three states. Solid, liquid and gas.
  • Oh come ON, couldn't you at least pretend to find it hard? :angry:

    FINE, your turn Charger <_< <br />
    Edit: Think I'll REALLY have to try harder next time. Need to find something that will stump even the mighty quiz person that is Charger :g:

    I wouldn't try too hard, Jay. That was a good one and it did take some thinking. I really wasn't sure if that was the answer or not, it was just my first guess. Half the fun is when the questions are not too hard, that way anyone can answer them and the thread keeps moving. After all, the name of the game is common knowledge! It just looks like not many peeps are playing these days?!

    Let's stick with any easy one....

    Ring
    Balls
    Tacks
  • Is it a body part of some kind? In the case of Tacks I can only think of Thumb as in Thumb Tacks, and Thumb goes with Ring as well, but Thumb Balls? Doesn't make sense to me unless it's an American only thing like Thumb Tacks (which we call Drawing Pins) but I knew about Thumb Tacks via WWE and ECW :mellow:

    Anyway, go back on subject, is it some kind of body part? If not, I'm stumped :g: and this is supposed to be EASY? :blink:

    There may be body parts in there somewhere. I wouldn't rule them all out. It's not thumbs.

    A clue, just for you, to help you get through.
    Including the first three, but this one is new.
    To get the right one, you must combine two.


    Does that help?

  • OK, I typed in all 3 words into Google and it came up with search results as Jewellery. Sooo...are they all types of Jewellery?
    Rings are just well rings,
    Balls are some sort of like Jewel Encrusted Ball or something,
    and Tacks are Tie Tacks.
    Am I close? Miles away?
    That little clue ryhme thing you provided was even more cryptic than the three words :wacko:
  • i was thinking feet - but not coz im a dirty google cheat like Jay :p



    Ring - Toe RING

    Ball - BALL of your foot

    Tack - Tack(le) like football


    see.... no i know its not right but i had no other ideas - is it even close??
  • I'm feeling like a kleptomaniac here and am going to take oddish's answer to a step beyond what she said.

    Toe Ring
    Ball of your foot
    Thumb Tack

    Am I correct?? :huh:
  • Well, we've got some players!!! :clap: Unfortunately, none of these answers are correct.

    Only one of the three is a body part and two of you literally don't have them, but figuratively could.

    A single word relates to each.
    All of them, figures of speech.
    One of them, you try to reach.


    That will help! :blink:

    [i]p.s. I am NOT a google cheat. Just easier is all with some things. If needs be, I'll use Ask.co.uk or Lycos or something next time :harhar: lol.
  • Figures of speech?

    What about 'brass'?

    I dunno about 'brass ring', but 'brass balls' sure makes sense, and I'm sure I've heard 'brass tacks' someplace...iono.
  • Hmmm. Let's examine the clues.

    To get the right one, you must combine two? Copper+Zinc=Brass

    One of them, you try to reach? "Reach for the brass ring" is a common expression regarding the strive for success.

    A body part one could figuratively have? Brass balls would fit there.

    Enough farting around, let's get down to brass tacks. ;) KFH has once again shown he is smarter than the average fried hippie! The answer is BRASS.

    Sorry if some of you found this one too difficult.

    Too difficult? Nah, was really easy :censored:
    Well proves what I've already said before, I am too young for some of these things. Although I have obviously heard of Brass Balls, but the Brass Ring and Brass Tacks things? Er, no, never heard of those sayings :blink:
    Well go KFH for getting it right. You see, the colonel DOES know best :D Even if he HAS become a hippie
  • Alllrighty...lemme see what I can whip up real quick. Mind you, I just woke up, so this might not be the most difficult one...or it might just be inane.

    Monitors
    Food Containers
    Paperwork


    ...yeah, good luck with that one. Hardly even makes sense to me. :huh:
  • Big guess to start things off - You can RECYLE them?
  • Monitors use electricity like its food,
    You store food in Food Containers
    Paperwork and food? Er, something to do with Paperwork is the food of big high executive type people? :wacko:


  • Again...nope! >_> I'ma give this another day or so before I throw in the towel.
  • Gis a clue. Go on, you know you want to :59:
  • Hmm...well, it's in reference to something having to do with an item.

    This item comes in several vivid and well-known colors. >_>
  • I WAS going to says Ipod with reference to loads of different colours plus it has a Monitor (Screen), but can't think of how Ipod relates to the other two things :wacko:
  • Alright, I'm throwing in the towel on this one. :P Like I said, it was pretty obscure and I threw it up late at night after a long day of work.

    I just used the first thing I saw when I look around.

    Nameably, something stuck to my monitor.

    Monitors, food containers, and paperwork/folders/etc.

    All of them cliche locations for post-it notes, eh?

    Alright, somebody keep this rolling! I'm too brain-frazzled!
  • WOW - KFH - That was a pretty clever one!!
  • >_> Clever, or just plain obscure? Hard to say!
  • Okay KFH, I'm going to keep the ball rolling with this one.
