I liked this one. When your re-read the rebus, knowing the solution, you can hear the sack full of pennies drop as you start questioning your own intellect.

Or RTS or RTION or RTING. But a very cool puzzle (which I couldn't solve).

this is weird, if you look at a keyboard, P is above L diagonally, and M is also above O&K (wrapping of course), so I assumed that D was to X.
But the original answer is very clever.

Isn't "Distopia" a word? It has the opposite meaning of the word "Utopia."

Great Puzzle. I enjoyed it thoroughly, even though I had to resort to a dictionary to find words that started with it. Next, H is to ? (too easy)

hilton, I too went the keyboard route and came up with D is to RX. Another example of making the simple complex.

I almost saw the teaser how it was supposed to be, but then I was still kinda confused at the last part. I thought it was DISTOOK. Meh...

I agree with Mystic. The answer jumped right out at me. Excellent, though!

Came up with "Distort" quickly but clicked on the answer with little confidence, thinking there must be many possible answers. Still liked it.

Great fun..I got the first two words right away but took me a bit if time to get the third. Then it was there!!
teri12265us*
Sep 22, 2005

This was good. I usually don't bother to log in and comment, but this was worth telling you "good job, you got me!".

I was thinking (or was I?) algebraically since P is 2 away from L alphabetically, and M is 2 away in either direction from O and K, so I was trying to work out some complex problem. Silly me!
Take Care All!

Clever and fun!! I didn't get it and feel like a fool. I made it way to complex We need more of these. My hat is off to all who create these daily teasers.

I was following the same line as terri12265, I guess, looking to the keyboard, but then I downloaded it and...like a bag of hammers...nice work.

to Teri12265: I'm not sure what you were thinking, but P is not two letters away from L, it's four.
(I'm surprised no-one else saw that.)

Sep 22, 2005

Dude...easy other answer that doesn't go along with yours, but it works perfectly.

Look down at your keyboard.

Look at P. The only other letter in that diagonal is L.

Look at M. The only other letters in that diagonal are O and K.

Look at D. The letters in that diagonal are R and X.
Just so's ya know.

Sep 22, 2008

Good one! Strangely, I saw this immediately - probably because my eyes are so tired the letters ran together rather than forming individual words.
FredSAus*
Sep 22, 2008

I took is at Profit is to Loss
Margin is to OK
Hence D is to S (supply).
I'm tired though. Good riddle.

Sep 22, 2011

THAT was a clever one - and I had no clue. I thought it was the distance each letter was from the beginning or end of the alphabet! AND, it was starring me right in the face! I loved it! We're home from the hospital - everyone is doing well! Hi to my dear friends!

Interesting puzzle but too many possibilities .... in addition to the two answers given by the creator ...

Distorting, distorts, distorter ... (this list is too long to continue)

distome, distomes, (a type of parasitic flatworms)

These are just off the top of my head, I am sure if one were to look it up, there would be many more ...

and since we were not told how many letters the answer is, given the first word had 1 letter added to it, and the second example had 2 letters added to it, it would follow that the one we were asked to solve would have 3 letters added to it.
gaylewolfAus*

I LOVED this one - very clever. I do NOT remember seeing this before and I even commented on it. Thanks for posting!
