Who's defending?
stares pointedly at Deusovi
 
Mike defending:
 
Q? ok then
 
No, not Q. I am defending ""
 
I see
1: The sound of one hand clapping
 
So it's one of the many zero-length words
PASS 1
 
4:16 PM
but ... nobody contacted it.
 
I guess that means you've probably guessed it.
Contact 1.
1:
Am I right?
 
1 ✔️ Yes that was my word. How ever did you guess it so soon
And @Rubio I've been told that I don't need to wait for a contact if I'm sure that a clue is the correct word
 
(I know. hehe)
(The customary response to "but nobody contacted it" is "I know." :) I'm just playing dumb. I do it well)
Since I obviously attacked successfully it's my turn to defend. so ...
Rubio devending: P
 
2. No joke, it's @Deusovi's least favorite opera
90. Sourcerer
 
90: It's not PRATCHETT, but probably isn't
90: It's also not PHP
 
4:27 PM
90 Nope!
 
hm
 
It's also a terrible clue, hold on
90: Sourcerer in a favourite title
 
welp. I suppose I should ask if the spelling is intentional then.
 
50% chance of yes
 
90: It's not POTTER. (meh)
 
4:35 PM
90 Nope
(10) Mammal playing dead is heard after death
 
(10) It's not POSTHUMOUS but I don't get where the OUS came from
 
Because... "POSSUM IS"
 
oh. gotcha
 
Why is nobody else here? Someone please save Rubio from my terrible clues
 
also, terrible clue. I love it.
 
4:42 PM
(7) First two ply, brown toilet wiper
(3) Nail down a proper start, for example
17. Madly scientific alternative to family therapy
 
currently experiencing technical difficulties sorry, please stand by
ugh. browser went completely insane.
(3) It's not PEG
 
(3) ✔️
I can only come up with so many bad clues at a time
 
4:58 PM
(7) It's not PLUMBER. that took a while. why "wiper" ?
 
@Rubio It's one of the job's many... duties
 
@MikeQ booooo
 
(5) Right in diseased middleman
 
5: It's not PROXY
 
(5) ✔️
 
Sid
5:01 PM
Ha! Diseased=Poxy?
I love that
 
(4) Left in dog stopper
 
4: It's not PLUG
17: It's not PSYCHOTHERAPEUTIC ?!

Ok, too easy :P
 
(8) Boxer, pug, I, I, I, I
 
5:07 PM
that's horrible.
 
I know. Say it anyway.
 
You should be ashamed.
 
Aug 9 at 2:40, by Mike Q
I'm always ashamed
 
lol!
8: It's not PUGILIST
 
I have that bookmarked
8 ✔️
 
5:09 PM
Can I contact 90?
 
sure.
PASS 90 assuming you're contacting it.
 
I'd say 90: Potter
 
35 mins ago, by Rubio
90: It's not POTTER. (meh)
And twas not the boy who lived
 
Didn't read up until there
 
It was however PHILOSOPHER, as in "Philosopher's Stone", the name for "Sorcerer's Stone" used outside the US
 
5:11 PM
pff, "sourcerer"
 
And as we all know, "outside the US" is located in the UK, and all British spellings have one more "U" than American spellings
 
Not a fan. :)
of the clue, not the books
 
" "outside the US" is located in the UK", wat lol
 
@ffao TIL ;)
 
@ffao don't you know there are only two countries on earth? the USA, and the other one
 
5:13 PM
"The USA, and the unimportant other one."
 
It's along the lines of "List the countries that use Celsius instead of Fahrenheit"
 
@Rubio well, that's what I was implying, but I didn't want to outright say it :P
 
@Avigrail Escellent. Now if you can just revivify yourself in your proufile description, you'll be in good shape.
 
It's outside the US, so it would be a proufile
 
5:15 PM
@Deusovi important subtext deserves to not be subtext. :)
 
(And yes, I know that no matter how many times I make that joke, it still isn't funny)
 
Do people from inside the US say "S" ?
"I'm from the SA"
 
no - people outside the USA call it the UUSA.
(Obviously!)
 
So much to learn! I better stay with my 3D models and the aliens
 
why has @deus not contacted 2 is my question
 
5:18 PM
yes, I'm wondering that too
 
It might be a joke after all
 
Sid
@Avigrail that would make you someone from South Africa
 
Which essentially is just "not US"
 
(8) Broken tine in five prefix showing sorrow
 
contact 8
 
5:25 PM
15: ...
22/7: ...
 
contact 22/7
 
Someone else please make a clue

22/7: It's (really) not PI
 
@Rubio 8 and neither am I ✔️
22/7 ✔️

15 No but that's definitely my caliber of dumb clue
 
5:32 PM
305: It's not PIN
405: It's not PERCENT
 
305: ✓
405: close enough ✓
 
5: It's not PERIODS?
 
5: nope
 
105 or 205: It's not POWER perhaps
 
contact 205
 
5:34 PM
contact 5
 
105 is POWER ✓ (205 is not)
 
106. Almost voltage
 
15: It's not PHOSPHORUS
 
contact 106
 
15 P ✔️
 
5:36 PM
contact 205
 
205: It's not POTENTIAL? POTENCY?
POUND? heh
 
none of those
 
mutter.
PASS 205, I'm gonna kick myself.
 
205: Pressure
 
205: PRESSURE
 
5:39 PM
yup
 
oh. derp.
 
verb, not noun
 
I hope all of my clues die
 
I hope 5 lives
 
Rubio defending: P ...er what was my word again? ... oh yeah A
 
5:40 PM
5 does not live :c
 
and it was likely POINT
 
indeed it was
 
points, surely
 
7: Marauder
 
nope
just POINT
I would not have accepted "points" from anyone
 
5:40 PM
2 lives
17 dies, was PICKLE
106 dies, was POTENTIAL
 
heh. I was going to guess POTENTIAL on 106 next, then forgot to do it
 
POWERPOINT, PRESSURE POINT, PINPOINT, PERCENTAGE POINT
 
ahhhhh.
 
34 still alive
 
Would "Voltag! (9)" be a valid &lit for POTENTIAL?
 
5:42 PM
I'd say no. hehe
 
definitely not
 
Sid
@MikeQ I don't understand that clue
 
Voltage is electric(al) potential, I think, and the non-word "Voltag" is potential (almost) the actual word "Voltage"
 
Sid
That would be the def, okay. Wordplay?
 
Ah you're right, it's not valid cryptic
 
5:46 PM
34: It's not PACIFIC maybe
 
9: Thick Skin?
 
9: It's not PACHYDERM
 
9: yep
 
7: It's not PATHOGEN?

(8) 2d6 sounds like heaven
 
see?
 
yep, looks reasonable to me
 
contact 8
6: Athenian Aspect?
 
I'm really trying to pretend 8 isn't there.
 
5:51 PM
(7) PhD and MD sounds like an impossibility
 
ugh.
 
contact 7
 
someone stop him before he puns away
 
err, although it's the second 7
 
7, 8: It's neither PARADOX nor PARADISE
 
5:52 PM
20. 20c (sometimes)
 
7, 8 ✔️✔️ You are welcome
 
5': eh. It's not PAGAN ? hehe
 
yup
 
that felt like a stretch.
 
that's because it was a stretch
 
5:54 PM
(8') $0.20 sounds standard

35: It's not PARTRIDGE
 
Too bad you know it :P
 
I've never heard this song in my life and I know it
Contact loves that
 
5:59 PM
yes, because it has a long list of words starting with fairly common letters
and it's not immediately gettable
(usually)
 
PASS 6
 
6. PARTHENON?
