I started out wrong. I thought: If there is not enough light to SEE... It was all downhill from there.

This was a good one and one where the words didn't get in the way, unlike so many others. Keep 'em coming.

teddybairAus*
Dec 11, 2006

That was very well worded, and yes, that is how you spell "readjust". It was correct. Though I didn't get it either!

I got it right away!

"that is absolutly retarted not how spell redjust meaning it is technicly the wrong answer"

You have no right attempting to correct anybody else's spelling.

A Superb teaser! I had the answer within moments. After reading the comments, I was wondering who really did get the answers, but it doesn't really matter, as long as I know I had the correct answer... I have run into this teaser from a long time ago. But, to say that it is a repeat would be slapping someone in the face. And, I will not do that! Still, this is a fantastic teaser! Keep them coming!

Good teaser! I managed to get the read part right...just didn't know where to go from there...

udoboy i was thinking the same thing
scallioAus*
Dec 11, 2006

Oooh... tough.

I would have liked for the teaser to contain several sentences rather than just the one.

Great teaser.

The lightbulb over my head did not appear for this one but I enjoyed trying anyway!

After that explanation, I think that it could have been better with more than one of these puzzles. The explanation was as long as the puzzle!!!! Don't get me wrong. It was great.. I just would like to see more.

that was a good one i got it right YAY ME!!!!

Dec 11, 2006

I thought the answer would contain 2 separate words since 2 lines were given so I came up with TURN and UP. Boy was I out in left field.

QrystalAca*
Dec 14, 2006

I check teasers days afterwards, sometimes.

Anyways, I didn't get this, though I tried thinking of SEE and READ in the first blank. READJUST! Wow. Toughie but a goodie!
