Fun:**** (3.27)
Difficulty:** (1.69)

When you behead a word, you remove the first letter and still have a valid word. You will be given clues for the two words, longer word first.
Example: Begin -> Sour, acidic
Answer: The words are Start and Tart.

1. Outer layer -> Oxidized metal
2. Defraud; violate rules -> Thermal energy in transit
3. Sensation of cold -> Local land elevation
4. Go upward -> Jointed appendage; branch
5. Strong metal rope -> Having necessary skill
6. Confined; restrained -> Old; grew older
7. Stop; discontinue -> Freedom from hardship
8. Lacking dirt -> Lacking fat


The shorter words start with these letters:
1. R
2. H
3. H
4. L
5. A
6. A
7. E
8. L

Easy, but good fun. Might be better without the letter categorisation, though, to make it a little harder (if a little less organised). Thanks for the teaser!

Fun! I got them all right with the hint except for 1-3. In my favorites! :D

Posted by Babe01/18/13
I did not try either. The clues were a bit dense for me. I could have thought of easier ones for us stupid people.

Some answers came very quickly, other, not so much. I liked it.

Posted by iggy3901/18/13
fun missed #7 but really liked it. thx :D :D :D

Cool. For #1 I got core --> ore, because there is technically an outer and an inner core at the center of the Earth. Could that be another possible solution?

Posted by auntiesis01/18/13
I enjoyed this one and then I realized I had done it before. I didn't remember it at all, so it was like a new one to me. Memory loss is fun !!! :D :D :D

Posted by bobg01/18/13
I like fridge-ridge and I'd add 'stone-tone' to the last one.

Posted by thecatladycac01/19/13
Nice teaser; I very much enjoyed it. I had to give the most thought to number four - I kept wanting to start with the word "rise", but the right answer finally came to me! I look forward to more like this one. :D :lol: :D

Posted by GertieMarie01/20/13
I found this one much easier than the last one I did. Lots of fun, especially when I have no difficulty getting them. haha Good work. :D :D

Posted by Obilio04/29/13
Needed the hint for 3 and 8, I'm doing all Marc's teasers and quizzes, because I know they will be great :D
