Just a little puzzled with the puzzle..... How could BIG be "more minuscule than minuscule"?

I like it. I got it wrong. But it's still good

@ iam1ru12, somehow I don't think you looked at the answer. The word big only has 3 letters and is therefore more minuscule (i.e. smaller) than the word "minuscule" which is 9 letters long. Understand?

Lui, love,
"mile" is not the longest word in the dictionary. Some say "smiles" is because "it's a mile between the 's'es." however, if you're going for words of length, the dictionary also includes "light-year" and "parsec" (a "parsec"is slightly more than 3 1/4 light-years)

I thought of AIR. It's microscopic but you actually see Oxygens, Nitrogen, Hydrogens, etc. (not air), yet it's big enough to surround us?

I thought it was the word I because it is shorter than all of those small synonyms and it is still big because when you see it for the most part it is capitol.

A LITTLE 2 EZ, reminds me of what gets bigger the more you take away from it?

Not hard, but I like it. The answer just comes to you if you've seen many riddles like this.

I thought it was an atom...or a molecule... I'm gonna add this to favorites.

While I get the riddle, the use of the word 'microscopic' is very misleading and actually makes the answer wrong. Microscopic means that it is so small that it cannot be seen with the naked eye - i.e., it can only be seen with a microscope. Clearly, you can read the word 'big' without the use of a microscope. Other than that, though, it would have been a good one. Cheers.

AAAAH. Don't like it, but thanks for posting it. Better answer would something to do with the universe (i.e. the earth, our solar system, etc.).

I though maybe it was ego. Ego would fit,wouldn't it? Anyway, I liked it.

Ok that was an easy almost obvious answer, but the clues are wrong.
Microscopic means "too small to be seen by the naked idea (requiring a microscopic be seen) neither word is "microscopic", so big is not more microscopic than microscopic - they are equally microscopic.

SHorter than short could have been used instead.

Congrats to teaser creator. You have created the 1ST (that I have encountered) ' HINT " that made it harder, rather that easier

Thought it was a really good teaser even if I didn't get it. Not good at getting these anyway.
