1:37 am

zas -- we all feel that way! or at least a lot of us do... we practice, we ask for help, we use the resources (a lot of good ones on Angelsong's page under the "Friends of Babble" link)...
1:38 am
zas

thanks for the encouragement. I'm feeling really stupid. My vocab is obviously the pits
1:39 am
stidmama

zas, don't get too discouraged! many of the words (especially the short ones) are really obscure, or from math or science or geology...
1:39 am
stidmama

duh! I meant geography...
1:40 am
stidmama

mrp -- could I get some help on the au 8 please? I am stumped (again)

geology too, stid... all those minerals
1:41 am
stidmama

thx hugabugs *brightening*
1:42 am
Hugabugs

speaking of geology, hehe... au8/50 is A yellowish, fluorescent minor ore of uranium with the composition
1:42 am
sherb

zas - when I first started playing, I told myself I'd learn some new words and expand my vocabulary... I've certainly done that, but most of them are words I never use in everyday conversation...
1:42 am
mrpresident

au8 - the season before winter... drop the last two letter and add the sometimes word for dark
1:42 am

Dogs, outside, barking.

hehe, geology, geography. I wouldn't know minerals from atlases sigh. I think I'm off to bed now. Maybe words will come floating in my dreams. Have fun all!

of course! so glad college geology is 20 years behind me... my prof would be apalled!
1:43 am

oops, I didn't put in the composition - Ca(UO2)2(PO4)2ยท10-12H2O.
1:43 am

that did it, thanks all.

hi holly, what's the dog barking at?
1:44 am

I just had to go to the dictionary -- and by that I mean the 20-volume OED on my shelf -- to define one of the words this thing just considered to be a match, since the dictionary link it gives didn't provide a meaning. Go figure. ;)

Very frustrating that ta___bud seems to be 2 separate words.
6:17 am

Hi Eva
ta7, just add a consonant to the 2nd ta6 (which sounds like something that is scruffy or worn, also a Scot? name for a common root veg.
6:18 am
FMitch

... and it starts from the t in the bottom right hand corner.
6:21 am
Eva

FMitch. I must be blind. Only have one ta6, the one that means to shred, tear, and no matter which consonant I add to that I get rejected. What am I missing?!
6:22 am
FMitch

LOL take the 1st 4 letter of the word you have and add 2 vowels to the end for the 6.
6:24 am
FMitch

and once you ahve that add another letter to make the word "even more so"
6:24 am
Eva

A very quiet and embarassed "oh". Thanks!
6:25 am
FMitch

Don't be quiet or embarassed, that not you!!! just go woohoo! when you get the 7.

Merp, who is looking out from my icon, is never quiet and rarely embarassed. He is walking around the bedroom tearing dried leaves from plants and muching them to let me know just how starving he really is. Sooner or later he will give one of the plants a hard tug and send it to the floor and then I'll HAVE to get out of bed.
6:30 am
FMitch

LOL good ol' Merp.
6:31 am
Eva

I'm constantly amazed at what can come from brain the size of a walnut! Lets me know how little of mine I actually use.
6:34 am
FMitch

FYI the 2nd ta6, take off the 1st t and make it a p instead and you will get another 6 word and if you play around with the endings you will find another pa6 too.
6:35 am
FMitch

... and that will lead you to a 7/32.
6:35 am
Eva

Thanks, I have those. Have all the 9's, 8's & 7's now. Still need to find another 11 6's.
6:37 am
Eva

My score has been dropping lately. Just don't seem to have the concentration to keep at it until the very end. It's just too beautiful outside and we have a very small window between freezing cold and when the biting insects show up- about a month and a half, so I'm wanting to be out in the world....how bizarre. Clearly have my priorities confused(-:
6:37 am
FMitch

I'm impressed, I have no 8's or 9's yet, mind you I'm still free typing rather than aiming at anything specific.
6:39 am
Eva

The 8's and 9's weren't that bad-aside from one very strange au8. Many of them come from the constellation you have been helping me with, more or less. The be prefix is important.
6:39 am
FMitch

Eva, you have to make the most of it, spring is coming but is late here inthe UK this year, but the odd day of blue sky and sunshine makes such a difference to the soul.
6:42 am
Eva

We've been having temps 20 to 30 degrees warmer than usual for this time of year in Vermont. Days like this induce the amnesia necessary to remain here - "What 6 month winter?" "What black flies, deer flies, mosquitos?" "What greyness?". Although the mud is inescapable this time of year.
6:42 am
FMitch

5 more mins of babbling then I must get on and do other things.
See you again soon Eva and thanks for the hints on the 8&9's
6:44 am

Time to feed Merp, meditate, take a walk, do some baking. Ah, what a burdensome schedule(-:
6:47 am
FMitch

Enjoy your day Eva :)
6:47 am

The be9 should actually be listed before the be8.

See you later.

7:45 am
Cathy

good clue Sheryl .. thnx, I didn't have that one :)
7:45 am

I plan to leave the page up, although the original purpose of putting it online was very different from what has evolved.
8:09 am

Sheryl-- just found the ni6 myself. It's got that "sometimes vowel" added to the ni5 right above it :)
8:09 am
Atalante

april fool's stuff: http://www.answers.com/topic/a pril-fool-s-day
8:09 am
Sherylr1961

what was it's orignal purpose angel, I use it to find out what the icon for the day is and to get the stats
8:12 am
Angelsong

the original reason I put the resource page online was so that Babblers could see it and see how it works, to decide if they wanted their own page just like it to store on their hard drives.
8:12 am
Sherylr1961

I wouldn't be able to make my own page, just don't have the brain power, lol
8:13 am
Angelsong

sheryl...I make the page for people who want it. you don't have to do it yourself.

" a dirty book never gathers dust."

interpret it as you will.
9:03 am

do you?! EW! (sorry!) I can't think of anything worse! But she does - its something to do with a magnesium deficiency apparently!

And yeah, I hope HUrshy's ok ...

9:06 am
renfield

nut....howdy pardner....is that earth down there?
9:06 am
evanonut

no, no, i'm sure it's mars.
9:06 am
Atalante

that explains it all Babs!!!! Cos most of our chalk is made of magnesium carbonate not calcium carbonate (like natural chalk) her doctor can only think its something to do with her body wanting to balance magnesium levels
9:07 am
harpjane

true or false: eating chocolate helps a magnesium deficiency? (hi)
9:07 am
artlady

'bout time, Babs. Jamie needs the moolah!
9:07 am
Babbler

not to mention it's utterly delicious, Atalante! *smacks lips* ; D
9:07 am

eating chocalte helps EVERYTHING!

harp, that's a good look for you!
9:08 am

nut - just as i imagined!!!!
9:08 am
artlady

Atalante...what would ever cause someone to START eating chalk? Body imbalance or not!
9:08 am
Babbler

Jamie's cute, he can have all the dosh in my purse if he wants! ;D
9:08 am
artlady

Harp, isn't chocolate one of the major food groups? It is on MY food pyramid!
9:08 am
Atalante

good question ... babs? *puts interrogation spotlight on* why did you start liking chalk?
9:08 am
evanonut

yes yes, such an imagination.
9:09 am
Babbler

chocolate is essential to our general health and well-being. helps produce tryptophaN (??) which helps produce serotonin (??) all the feel good hormones. :D
9:09 am
artlady

speaking of iron sudoku, what's with 3 easy puzzles in a row??? Of course, then I have more time to Babble...
9:10 am
evanonut

and babs, we all know that emulates the feeling of first falling in love *sigh*
9:10 am
artlady

Wow, Babs. Such erudition!
9:10 am
Babbler

umm, Atalante, well, I don't know. It just looked so lovely and chalky, and then I tasted it and it was yummy, and that was that really. : )
9:11 am
Atalante

doesnt it squeak against your teeth like is does on blackboards? ew!
9:11 am
evanonut

i bet like those wintergreen lifesavers.
9:11 am
Babbler

that squeak never bothered me.... but no, it doesn't, Ata! : )
9:11 am
Cathy

Haz -- loved your Cousteau doggie so much, had to go find my picture of the swimming kitty. You may need to refresh, as I just added it :) :)
9:12 am
artlady

Well, I guess it might be like chewing on Tums.
9:12 am
Atalante

thank goodness for that! *shudders at squeaking*
9:12 am
Babbler

ooooh!! I'm addicted to wintogreen lifesavers!!! can't get them over here!! I have to beg my buddies when they visit the states!! which reminds me.... artladyyyyy???? please could you get me some wintogreen lifesavers?? pretty please? :D
9:13 am
renfield

dear atalante... i like birthday candle wax..... is this a sign that i like birthdays or birthday cakes? please help....waxing away in texas
9:13 am
Atalante

there's a shop in London you can buy them Babs - or I can bring you some back in a few weeks if you'd like!
9:13 am
evanonut

oh jeez these icons - babs, want me to ship you some?
9:14 am
Atalante

dear renfield, I'm afraid that that is a sign that you really are completely mad. Please try eating chocolate instead, or if in emergencies, try earwax. It's more nutritious.
love
atalante
9:14 am
evanonut

ren, it's 50 here, but it was 75 yesterday. wish it'd make up it's mind - ps - says here that craving for birthday candles is a sign that you have a bowling deficiency in your life.
9:14 am
Haz1558

Cathy - glad you liked the icon - I just picked it from Google images under April Fool because I thought it was such fun.
9:15 am
artlady

So Babs, I have to add that to my luggage in June, eh?
9:15 am
Babbler

hey Ata, think you'll make it up to London to the Babble convention and meet artlady? mid-June.... : ) (and bring my wintergreen lifesavers??) ; )
9:15 am
renfield

LOL atalante!!! and nut!!!!!
9:16 am
Atalante

yup! should do!
9:16 am
Babbler

oooh, yes please, Artlady!! :D:D:D:D:D:D
9:16 am

9:16 am

That is a great pic, Haz ! The expression on its face is priceless :)
9:16 am
evanonut

no no ren, that's not a joke, says so right here *points* on nutmed.web
9:17 am
Judi

Worthless information (and not an April Fool's lie): Wintergreen Lifesavers spark in the dark. Turn off the light in your bathroom. Stand in front of mirror. Bite wintogreen lifesaver. See spark. Really works. Weird but true.
9:17 am
renfield

ok nut.....i'm better at eating chocolate though...
9:17 am
Babbler

that's very true, Judi. (I've done it many many times!!)
9:18 am
evanonut

true, quite true
9:18 am
evanonut

chocolate bowling ball? it'll leave skidmarks though.
9:19 am
artlady

Ummm, Judi? You need to find a hobby.... ;-)
9:20 am
Judi

Artlady, Babble IS my hobby. Worthless information is just something that sticks in my head. By the way, if you really want to have some fun, put a marshmallow in the microwave for about 30 seconds and see what happens.

9:22 am

I have to say, playing iron sudoku and babble at the same time is really causing my brain to spark like Judi's lifesavers!

judi...will we need to clean the microwave afterwards????
9:23 am
evanonut

what! no micoriwave! * faints from shock *
9:24 am
Judi

Only have to clean the microwave if you zap marshamallow or Peep too long. The trick is knowing when to push the stop button.

i'm back, lol, troops all fed
9:25 am
Babbler

yes, nut. I read that it nukes all the nutrients out of food and you're just left with fibre and water, effectively. So I thought, 'what a waste of time' and gave it away. My family took it, but only to reheat, not to cook. (my orders!) : )
9:25 am
Babbler

hi sheryl : )
9:25 am
evanonut

guess that means i'm still safe using it to make my tea.

Oh dear, I only have 36 words...time to focus...or get cleaned up to face the day. Good thing y'all can't really see me...I'm a fright!

9:47 am
Atalante

sudoku is really nothing to do with numbers
9:48 am
Sherylr1961

okay explain that don;t you have to make sure everything adds up in rows
9:48 am
Samy

i'm talking about how people understand 5/12
9:48 am
amandacath

Hi all! I see that after we brought down that wall of A's the other day, we now have one of U's to contend with.
9:49 am
Atalante

because nothing "adds up". you have to have one of each in a series. in ironsudoku, you have the option of using different colours or different letters, for example. its patterns.
9:49 am
rolin

samy/....un 5/12 means the word starts with un have 5 letters and because when you have 5 letters the score is doubled it is worth 12 points...the original 5 letters therefore add up to 6
9:50 am
Sherylr1961

ah i see i haven't even been over there yet, addicted enough to babble and spend enough time here, family would kill me if i get another computer addiction

9:51 am
Atalante

*grins* I loathe numbers with a deadly loathing, and I love sudoku. Don't be put off by the numbers aspect - they are simply a pattern to be used
9:51 am
GingerUK

any help with w's please, I have 3 that are a 4, 5 and 6, each adding one letter and a very common word...
9:51 am
artlady

Sudoku is just logic. Of course, often the logic is waaay beyond me, but it exercises the gray matter! ANd I don't need hints... :-( Babble's another story.
9:52 am
Sherylr1961

speaking of hints, lol
9:52 am
Sherylr1961

you guys have talked me into it, i will go try sudoko right after this
9:52 am
artlady

Atalante, I thought I hated numbers until statistics in college. Then I loved them! I discovered (or rather, REdiscovered) that I am a very atypical art person.
9:52 am
Atalante

ginger, take your common word and change the third letter
9:53 am
artlady

Sheryl, it's a pretty easy one to start with.
9:53 am
GingerUK

thanks Atlante :-)
9:53 am
Atalante

I say I loathe numbers, but I did do a PhD in mathematical biology :P I love how numbers form patterns, and I do like stats. But anything else is RUN AWAY!
9:54 am
Sherylr1961

maybe i will flip there for a bit and come back and tackle those last 2 words on here, be back
9:54 am
GingerUK

got it but I wouldn't have guessed that, can't remember last time I used it....
9:55 am
Haz1558

Sheryl - are you still looking for two w words?
9:55 am
Babbler

what's mathematical biology, Ata? that sounds interesting! I love patterns and numbers. (says she who messed up today's sudoku already)
9:55 am
Atalante

have a go - ask for tips on how to work the thing while over there - babs and friends should give you a few nudges in the right direction :)

9:56 am
ExWren

There is absolutely nothing simple about sudoku (?).
I'm not afraid of numbers, having worked in accounts most of my working life, but I cannot do the 'S' game
9:57 am
brandyjack

Sudoku has nothing to do with numbers. It's pure logic. You could do the game using the letters A thru I just as easily.
9:57 am
Babbler

it's not really about numbers, ex wren, it's about patterns. It's about what has to go where. It doesn't have to be numbers, you can use any symbol. I've seen a silly one in a mag that used make up and shoes! :D
9:58 am
brandyjack

Not that there is anything easy about Sudoku...... Just managed to finish one this morning.
9:58 am
Atalante

well ... I was looking at how fish changed their shape and size on coral reefs through geological time. So there was a lot of stats, and making up new statistical methods, and also a lot of working with a huge number of dimensions to plot out how the fish changed in both shape and size. At one point, we started playing with databases including 149 dimensions LOL!
9:59 am
Yvo

thank you haz ,as soon as i find the sp i will hopefully find the "be"
9:59 am
ExWren

I know the theory, but I always end up with about 5 empty squares, and nothing to put in them
10:00 am

10:00 am

Ata, so it's about number patterns in biology?

Please pass the fish. I just struggled with the at 6/18. Brain freeze.

Hi brandyjack!

artlady

Hi stid. I notice you're back, too... ;-)
10:02 am

10:02 am
Babbler

what did you focus on for your PhD?
10:02 am
Haz1558

Hi, stidmama - yes, I do take breaks! I was away this morning doing the horrible grocery shopping and am just back from a walk with the dog. Glad to say I've got the grid finished.

So, does anyone else share my current minor problem, which is that I have been Babbling so much that the letters have worn off my keyboard? Good thing I am a touch typer ;D

OH, and, Good Morning All! Will be bouncing in and out unpredictably all day -- so if I don't respond to you, it means I got pulled away :)

10:10 am
GreyWoulf

Sorry, didn't mean to interrupt the convo :)

I take my hat off to all of you who have achieved or are comtemplating your PhD. I have never been able to exercise the self discipline necessary to achieve one :\
I never even made it past a 2 year college.
10:11 am

hi GreyWoulf, movieman!
10:11 am
Babbler

Ata, hmm... well I have lots of strengths and interests and passions. I live in South London, so there are a few good uni's around for me to choose from. And then there's the Open University if they don't take me...
10:12 am
artlady

When you come from an entire family of teachers, you don't have a lot of "choice" about college and career. My daughter will be the 4th generation (if she finishes college in education)

well i believe all these things myself - that it is possible, that it takes work - it's just that it doesn't mean much to her coming from me, i've only been married 6.5 years. but if there is proof of people who ARE still happy after a long time, that would be more significant to her.

No, not because of that - didn't you lose a night's sleep due to babble? And yesterday you felt terrible?
2:35 pm

there are like 20 words that i don't think i've seen before even in babble
2:36 pm

hello everybody
2:39 pm

No, it is a perfectly "normal" grid, probably a little easier to take, since there are no infinite lists of any one letter like 're' or 'ma'. Enjoy!

2:53 pm
mab

I'm sure you know this, hurshy, but if one doesn't seem to help, another will. It becomes quite a waiting game.
2:54 pm

try not to miss days -- they take time to build up...and if you ever go off -- i promise you cold turkey isn't the way to go. when i went off i was dizy for days (the first time)
2:54 pm
harpjane

hurshy, it's worth it. you'll be amazed!
2:55 pm

true - hursh - but missed days are not as deleterious as you may fear -- full effect may be delayed a tiny bit, but that's all :)
