I = Chek?
True story? FYOI? FSEI? (from your own imagination/from someone else's imagination?)

If "I" isn't you, is "I" H/A/M? H/A/F? If "I" isn't you, may we call "I" Sam?

<<true>>

True story: yes. And it's ME.

Kaylee, how do I get my sentences to appear in bold print like everyone elses. I tried copy/paste but it goes in like this no matter what? Do I do it as an "upload attachment?"

Chek: On the left of the screen is a "Formatting" link that gives a lot of tips. But for bold text, do the following (sans spaces):

\ b { Your bolded text goes between the braces. }

Now to questions:

You didn't know that -- a fact? A piece of trivia? Is it relevant where you learned "that"?

Well THAT didn't work!! You're just going to have to recognize that your questions will appear in inbetween <<>> these left and right arrow thingys. And my responses will be UN bracketed. I really don't feel like taking a course in HTML, too.

welcome! also, replace the b with i for italics, and with u for underlined text. you can even type in a color name instead, like orange, blue, and so on =) Also, you can sandwich tags inside each other (for example, I was doing that all inside italics. So for example, \orange {orange} is how I got orange text, spaces removed.)

Was the fact about a person? A thing? A belief?


If you're really sneaky, you can show how to do the formatting without the spaces:

this is
\b{bold}: bold

And this is \blue{blue}: blue

Is it an object that can be used for something? And usually is? Is it a very common object? Can it be found most places in the world?

is it found in the house? the garage? a workplace? would it typically be found inside? or outside?

would you estimate there is a greater than 50% chance I have one of these? own one of these? how about multiple of these?

can i buy one? from a supermarket? would it cost less than 5? less than 20?

did your doctor tell you this fact? nurse? dietician? local shopkeeper? tradesman? refuse collector?

would you estimate there is a greater than 50% chance I have one of these? own one of these? how about multiple of these? I myself have 4 of them; I should think you'd have at least 1 maybe two of them.

can i buy one? from a supermarket? yes, you can find them there, but typically you would go to a place geared for this kind of thing. would it cost less than 5? less than 20? don't know what that translates into, but they can cost between ten to fifteen dollars.

did your doctor tell you this fact? nurse? dietician? local shopkeeper? tradesman?possibly this one. refuse collector? no to the others.

does it have to do with the history of the hammer? the way it's made? the material? its use? why it's called "hammer"? its shape? some places it can't be found? its weight? its colour? its movement? its texture? its shine? the sound it makes when you hit it? what "hammer" is called in some other language? any of this on any sort of right track?

what "hammer" is called in some other language? This is closest, but it's more what I read it was called, and it was called something that is quite common and yet you would never associate that with a hammer!! At least I never did and I have been around tools all my life. For me it was a totally new concept ... large hint that!

i'm a bit confused - is this related to a literal translation of the word 'hammer'? Or lack of a literal translation?

Or a brand name for a hammer in your own language that seems completely inappropriate for what it is? e.g. The puzzler 3000

i'm a bit confused - is this related to a literal translation of the word 'hammer'? Or lack of a literal translation? I read a book that was not specifically about hammers but mentioned this particular fact about the hammer that I had never associated with it. If you zero in on the book, you should nail down what it was.

Or a brand name for a hammer in your own language that seems completely inappropriate for what it is? e.g. not a brand name, a generic noun. The puzzler 3000<-- ??.

ok, was it a fiction book? non-fiction?

was this word used as a synonym for the word 'hammer' in the book?

if you didn't associate this name with a hammer beforehand, how did you know that it related to hammers having read the book - was it obvious from the context? were there pictures of hammers? was it a brochure selling hammers and other hardware?

was this word used as a synonym for the word 'hammer' in the book? No, it mentioned it in the context like, " ... even the hammer etc., etc.".

if you didn't associate this name with a hammer beforehand, how did you know that it related to hammers having read the book because of how much sense it made after reading it. Was it obvious from the context? I never would EVER have referred to a hammer like the way this book did. But after considering it, I thought anyone would be hard-put to repudiate it! were there pictures of hammers? no. was it a brochure selling hammers no. and other hardware? no.

erm..i'm not sure what to ask now, sorry...

So there's something more to it than the book describing the hammer as an extension of the arm? as an additional finger? limb?

Solitiare, what email? Could you send again, please?

I see from your answer just above that I was wrong, so never mind.

**** SPOILER ****
I have a book on animatroncs which states that any device which helps you do work is a machine. The hammer helps extend the arm so that you can do the work, therefore it is a machine. Who would've thought it? Great job!\b

... thank you all for hanging in there with me on this my first attempt, here. It was fun, but I must say it IS hard sometimes to know how to answer some questions while trying not to mislead people. You guys asked some pretty "nailing" questions. Great job, Great job!
