You may want to specify that the letters CAT must be in order and sequencial. For example, "copy" could be to "trace", which does contain the letters "C", "A" and "T" - just not in order or next to each other...

Good use of language. I was able to get most of them, but missed a few. Well done!

Well that was pretty cool. i only got 1,4, and 7 though that was a great teaser, and no offense, but i just like the ones that you have to figure out, like riddles. i think theres a conspiracy to overthrow those with this kind! i dont know if im the only one or not...

#8 could also be replicate, and #10 could also be catechist.

Good job.

Oct 07, 2006

SORRY (I THINK) I MISSED THE BAD COMMENTS, THEY MAY HAVE SUPPORTED MINE.

THIS WAS VERY CHILD-LIKE, IT ONLY A FEW SECONDS AND I THINK MOST MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS COULD ANSWER THIS QUITE EASILY.

LET TRY TO STEP UP THE PACE.

I APPRECIATE TRYING, BUT RESULTS WOULD BE SATISFYING
lmurray*cn*
Oct 07, 2006

WHAT IS A MEAN COMMENT?

ONE INTENDED TO HURT SOMEONE

AN HONEST NEGATIVE OPINION AS TO THE QUALITY OF A TEASER SHOULDN'T BE CONSIDERED MEAN.

GET SOME THICKER SKIN

Teasers don't have to be difficult to be enjoyed. IMURRAY, you need to get a more positive attitude in life. Yours must be miserable. Never mind telling people that they need a thicker skin.
OldChinaHand**
Oct 07, 2006

Imurray, Bringles' little 'nat'...no more, no less.

On the other this teaser stirred up a few brain cell and a few goans, I'm sure. Good one.

Oct 07, 2006

Sorry...I met 'groans' as in you got me or 'Ah...of course' while reading the answer.

Starting the day with a teaser is CATching on with Brainglers (or are we Brainglists?).

If you CATch a look at the wiki, you'll see that aznboi1324 is...a middle schooler! Nice work.

Oct 07, 2006

OK Imurry, you want to step up the pace? Let's see a teaser submitted by you. Meanwhile, let us all enjoy the ones others have taken the time and effort to submit. I thought this one was easy, but I still didn't get all of them correctly. Next time. Thanks for submitting.

Awesome! I also love lil kitty cats! lol. Nice one tho!

Oct 07, 2006

Hang in there, Imurray! I'm sure there will be a teaser to test your talents soon! BUT for those of us who enjoyed this one, well....let us. and continue with your assessments to improve the content. Probably will be someting for everyone. I enjoyed this one!
iteachkidsAus*
Oct 07, 2006

Though I got most of them quite quickly, I find it ironic that I couldn't get "educator." Okay, maybe if I'd spent more time ... but this was FUN! I don't need to wrack my brain to have a good time.

lmurray, you said,
"LET TRY TO STEP UP THE PACE."
Please start with yourself. Use upper and lower case letters. Spell correctly. Write and submit a teaser or two of your own.

Good teaser, but I'm still groaning over medi(cat)ion, and as much as I take.
Thanks for submitting it.

Is it me, my server, or just because I am on different continent but I can't find any Imurray teaser my Braingle site. Has he every contributed anything positive?

I thought that one wa spretty lame. Oh and number 8 could be replicate. But nice job. But I prefer the harder ones. Thanks and keep the teasers comin!!!

Oct 07, 2006

Once again, kids, relax. This is only a comment section. I didn't have any difficulty with this one. The answers came, quickly. But, it is a reasonably good teaser. I have only been a member since June, but I will still give an honest opinion of the teasers. I just will not rate the toughness, because there are different levels of intelligence in this community. To me, I have just run into too many repeats. That could be because I will visit other sites and enjoy their teasers, too. Keep up the good work. Remember, a Comment Section! Good, Bad, etc.

Oct 07, 2006

FIRST off.. comments can be CONSTRUCTIVE.. and not always so negative. Yeah.. it was kinda easy.. I didn't get them all, but I didn't think very long either.. been a long day.

AND.. getting a teaser actually APROVED is a feat in it's self!...

GRATS!

PLUS, some ppl that enjoy this site are not always adults and that may have been a bit tougher than for the rest of us.

Good teaser regardless and obviously you can't please everyone all the time and there are more positive comments than negitive ones so that is a WIN for the BOOKS!
tdbrsun*
Oct 08, 2006

I like this one. And, I didn't get them all. (( Also, I am past middle school. ))) We all see things different. This is the kind I like to see once in awhile . Keep up the good work.
vlermaAus*
Oct 09, 2006

Very nice job. Some of the comments were less than constructive, but you must consider the source on the nay sayers. We have all tried to be nice, kind, loving, etc. but for a certain Braingler it just does not sink in! Too Bad!

Sorry to take up your coment time on anything except your teaser. I thought it was easy, but creative. More please.
OhEmGeeA*
Oct 11, 2006

dear imurray,

uhm yea i happen to be a middle school student but that does not make me "child like" i strongly disagree with your comment!!! negativity is "childlike" to me so... I LOVED THIS TEASER!!
QrystalAca*
Nov 08, 2006


That was fun, even though I had to give up on #2 and #10, and I had cariCATure for #8 (with a little question mark, since I wasn't confident of that answer).

I agree with the person who said they groaned when they read some of the right answers. I felt like I was on the gameshow "Family Feud", reading the unguessed answers out loud with the audience. You know what I mean?

Good teaser. CATch ya later!

i like this..it was fun... good job!

Oct 07, 2009

I enjoyed this. Thanks! The only one I missed was edu or - maybe because I'm a teacher. (And I missed 'music' in yesterday's riddle but I'm a musician ... sigh!)

But q1 is not quite right - 'catcher' is not a synonym for 'baseball position.' This is a little pedantic, perhaps, but worth remembering as it can be important to have accurate instructions.
MajorAlanus*
Oct 07, 2009

dalfamnest, the last time I played baseball there were nine positions on the team, the 3 bases, shortstop, the 3 fielders, the pitcher and the CATcher. Now granted it's been over 50 years since I played ball, but my grandkids talk about the same 9 positions. How can you say catcher isn't a position?
dalfamnestAnz*
Oct 07, 2009

Yes, even as a Kiwi I know where the catcher crouches! A synonym, however, is a word which has the same or nearly the same meaning, so that it could be substituted.

Can you think of a sentence where either of these would fit?
- there are nine 'baseball positions' [= catchers?]
- the ball flew through to the 'catcher' [= baseball position?]

My understanding is that instructions in teasers need to be precise and indeed some solutions hinge on correctly interpreting them. These are not synonyms.

This is not a serious criticism - I enjoyed the teaser.
elentirAus*
Oct 07, 2009

I would have to back up dalfamnest on question one. Catcher is not a synonym for baseball position. But, seeing as I got it and I can not think of anything else that works better, I can overlook it.

Fun quiz!

avonmaAus*
Oct 07, 2009

I only missed a couple - mostly because I just ran out of time.
In baseball, when they name all the players on the field, the man behind home plate is called the catcher. I think they use it as a position AND a person.
Just my thoughts...
I really injoyed this teaser. I do get tired of the "pickiness" "pickyness" whatever, of some players. This is a game - do we have some perfectionists, here??? Just loosen up and have fun.
Thanks for the teaser!
phyllisa*us*

I liked this teaser and I think catcher is a baseball position.

Oct 07, 2009

I agree with damfalnest. Using the word synonym in the instructions didn't seem right for the clues that were a group of words. Still... a cute teaser.

I enjoyed it, only one I missed was copy cat. Groan..... Very good teaser, easy but fun.

my name is hailee too an i got only 1 of them, so u aren't dumb at all! and doehead, you need to shut your trap about being bored with this teaser! i have a headache, and i was going to get some medicine, but i started reading this and i forgot to go get some because it was so good!

Oct 07, 2012

What a fun teaser! It was not all that hard and as I have said many times before I like ones that can be figured out pretty easily. The people in 2009 and back farther sure were grumpy! Thanks cute bug for your comment to me last night. Glad you agree, but sadly those people will probably never see it.
