I like beavers. They give me a place to swim.
I am a word that can mean hard, rigid, fixed, unmoving, and determined.
I am an 80's "Rock Star" with a white line across my face.
An 80's punk band wanted to exterminate me with their "spray" name.
Who am I and what is the word?



Answer

A dam ant. (An ant in a dam.)
Adam Ant (80's rock star with a line across his face.)
Hard, fixed, determined, etc are all synonymous with adamant.

Interesting teaser for us 80's folks. I don't really get the part about ants swimming though...do ants swim?

No, but they build dams, pooling areas for fishies to swim. Those fishies eat floating ants, don't they

Very good teaser! If I hadn't had Henry Rollins on the brain, I would've done much better. Rats!

Nice play on the beaver theme, live ants use dead ants to make a raft so they cna float, but this only happens in extreme situations like a flash flood.

Mentioning Black Flag and Adam Ant in the same sentence is almost blasphemy. Henry Rollins is a ROCK GOD....mr ant is that little itch you get behind your knee, the one that is gone 5 seconds after you scratch it.
