I got all of them, but I was in the Navy. I was concerned that "Quartermaster" would not be something most people would know.

I loved it, though! Good job!

You guys are losers, get a life, it's Valentines Day!!!!!!!!!!

LOL

Feb 14, 2006

Good one fishmed. Yes, Happy Valentines Day folks. I only got one but that's ok. It was still fun to try. Let's see. Quartermaster is officer in charge of supplies for army troops or in the navy thw Od officer who syeers the ship and handles signaling equipment. I thought it was the guy in charge of handing out the pay, so I looked it up for all of us - duh I found out the guy I was thinking of was called the "Paymaster"!! How easy, huh! Anyhow there we have it.

bradon182001*us*

katjojoAus*
Mar 15, 2007

I got one of them. I have never heard of quartermaster.
Pizzazz2uAus*
Mar 15, 2007

This is a Superbly Excellant teaser! The main fact is how each one of us applies *what we have learned to everyday life.* And if you have learned this once before, wouldn't the second time around or better, make it that much easier?
KellingtonAca*
Mar 15, 2007

Cool, didn't know what a quartermaster was though....
12thmanAus*
Mar 15, 2007

woops meant "do you" not "you do"
QrystalAca*
Mar 16, 2007

Wow, the first one didn't STAND-OUT to me at all, and apparantly I'm no MASTERMIND either. And how many times as a kid did I sing "Quartermaster's Store?"

*clears throat, and begins to sing*
"There were peas, peas, on cross-country skis,
in the store... in the store...
There were peas, peas, on cross-country skis,
in the Quartermaster's sto-o-ore...

My eyes are dim, I cannot see
I have not brought my specs with me!
I have no-ot brought, my-y specs, with me!"

...but I never knew what a Quartermaster was. Thanks for looking it up, vlerma!
frozenrose_885Aus*

Wow, I got the last two! That's amazing, considering my terrible skills at these types of things.

Good one! Didn't get quarter-master-mind, though!

I see you a lot around the rooms of Braingle, fishmed, so a Teaser of this Calibra is not at all surprising. NO, I didn't get one correct. Actually, I thought Hair Comb. I am always too eager to find out the answer. Great Teaser.

The example word was an easy one, but the other 3 words were hard to figure out. Hair was not too hard, but the rest....
jaycr*us*
Oct 04, 2013

Got all three. It's gonna be a great Friday!
HABS2933Aca*
