i7/56 - what the hole in old-fashioned school desks is for...
i 7/48--more scratchy
an edible c 7
more clues for the l-7, and c-7 please
got the c
The l/7 involves the stuff that you have to pick off your sweaters.
Babble must not be very good in bed... doesn't even know what a clit is!
runningforhome, i was thinking the same thing....lol
thanks for the l-7 clue....got it
lol runningforhome... so babble is definitely male ;)
Great, puzzle is working and not so big today... I am going to enjoy this one!
If that edible C7 is worth 48 points, I'd say the edible part is debatable!
Guess it must be... found a 2nd C7/48 that isn't edible, I suppose. Related to the cellular, outermost extraembryonic membrane, composed of trophoblast lined with mesoderm - so now you know!
whats happened to the little box that says how many points you get for 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 letter words???
Atalante, it has been gone for at least a week, I would guess. Subtract 3 from the number of letters and multiply. That is how I remember it but sadly that requires thinking! :)
Atalante: When the current ads went in, the box went out. We can probably still find it in the puzzle archive link -- ??
I think if you click on Babble rules, it also tells you how the scoring works. I think the problems with the grid started with the new ads.
I know its been gone ... I was just hoping it was going to mysteriously reappear ;)
Thanks for that roberts1 - but you're right, it does require thinking LOL!
It requires all my thought processing to get about half the words so every little bit matters to me. Particularly today!
I'm watching the news reports on the bomb blasts in London and hoping this terrible thing hasn't affected any of our fellow babblers from the U.K.
everything's ok here .... my husband's up in a building right next to Liverpool Street - but the building is structurally bomb-proof - whew!
It's a terrible thing.
I just don't see what they expect to gain from it all ...
I am only able to get news reports via the web which is very slow today, it all begins again, my thoughts are with those in London today not far up the road from me. God Bless.
is there another clue on the "edible" C7/48?
its so hard to wake up and hear about things like this happening all over the world...i have family in london, so i need to call my parents to see if theyve heard if theyre all ok...
c7/48 The small intestines of pigs, especially when cooked and eaten as food.
Some people consider that edible - not me!
ahhh...silly me, i thought babble woulda required the real spelling...
Just got up, Pray all our babblers are ok!!!
very quiet here in the City of London and have no idea how I'm getting home today
To my English Babble friends. My heart is with you. I am originally from NY, and I know what you are feeling now. I hope you and yours are all OK.
we have all the 7's listed...can we work on the 6'es now?
i dont have any yet!
A6/18 x4, K6/30, W6/39, T6/27, N6/18, L6/27, L6/33...that leaves one more.
sorry make that A6/18 x3 and C6/33 x2....NOW there is only one left.
well, well, well...good work leef!
R6/18 is the last one...enjoy.
i am stuck on the non edible c-7.....any clues?.....want to get that before i work on the 6's
modina, sprite gave a definition for the other c/7 at 2:01 am. The word is kind of similar to a word for a singing group.
re C7, here's a definition: an irregular, rapid, uncontrolled, involuntary, excessive movement that seems to move randomly from one part of the body to another
ok, i have looked through three dictionaries....still cant find that last c-7.......arrrggg
re C7, Google it
ohmygosh, I'm so sorry--that was a definition for C6 not C7--very distracted by BBC coverage of London!
re C7 same idea as sprite but different wording: Membrane attached to, and enveloping, the embryo. Defines the extra-embryonic cavity. Performs a major nutritive function by connecting the embryo to the mother.
i found a word that matches that definition....which is what i thought it was....but it is not in the puzzle.
i have tried every variation possible....it just doesnt work....i am getting frustrated.....
modina...i got uber-frustrated too....but i finally found it, and so will you...just keep noodling the last 2 letters.
finally got it.....thanks for all the help.......
now i only have 9 more six letter words.....lol
heh, i still have 8 more myself
I only need four more... I'll make a list of all of them (and the sevens) with clues once I'm done. :)
Grrrr... I found all the sixes and sevens, and had a list of clues all typed out, and then my computer froze before I could post it!
Okay, here they are, hopefully my computer will be nice this time.
