Someone ruined my day by mentioning a certain place. I have never been to that place, not has anyone I know, nor do I have any unfulfilled longing to go there, nor has anything upsetting to me happened there. How come mention of that place ruined my day??

Is this a real incident?

Did the place remind you of something that occured there that you did not quite agree with?

If it will help to find out the name of the place.... is it in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Australia or Africa. Or, is it a place in outer space?

Probably there are places in the other locations as well, with the possible exception of outer space

The place -
Is it a city? Village? Town? Country? Tourist spot? Imaginary place?
Does the name meant something bad/dirty in your language?

is it relevant who the 'someone' is? would the effect have been different if someone else said it?

was the name mentioned as part of a relevant conversation? was it in a question? a statement?

were you surprised? shocked? disappointed? upset? annoyed?

had you heard of the place before? had you heard the word but didn't know it was a placename?

did you learn something new? something unexpected?

Hi Felicia Nimue :-)

are any of these relevant to your annoyance - your politics? your name? your hobbies? your work? your appearance? your friends? your family? your co-workers? your students? your pets? (how is Palomides?)

were you annoyed at the person who said it? were you annoyed that such a place exists? is there just one place with this name that is relevant?

When you are using this name, do you more often refer to the place than the other meaning?
Is it a name given to the place, or a name that people have started using to describe the place. The latter part would be "the hood", "downtown/uptown" etc?

In general, are you sensitive to the kind of disaster that happened to this man? This man in particular? Other people that have the same or similar disasters?
Is it traumatic to most people? People around them? Does it require therapy?

Do you react the same way if you see the name/word in written?
Are you using the word/name yourself? A lot? Are you avoiding it? Is it removed you your vocabulary?
The reason you get upset, is it because: you feel guilty, it describes something about you, it reminds you of something that hurt you, something you could not help to stop, it requires an unpleasent response from you, it says something about the person saying it, you cannot tell the truth, you are disappointed with the other person?

ok have you ever been to this place? to another place with a similar name? did you have a bad experience there?

just to double check you didn't have any connection with the person who died? or any of their family? or friends?

did you just hear about the death and associate it with the name of that place?

did this someone mispronounce the city name like 'arkansas'? that would upset/annoy me!

are the cities generally named after a person? a people? saints? battles?

does the mention of the city make you think of past events there? past events involving the same word? similar word?

Hi :-)

I can't see where to go on this one..

So someone said the name of a place.. but it is irrelevant who said it? so the actual problem is the name itself?
and the name reminds you in some way of something unpleasant? involving harm to someone? physical harm? emotional harm? but it's not relevant who in particular is harmed?

and we should be looking for the link between you and this place? or you and this name?

so the name upsets you - is that because any of these are relevant - racism? slavery? torture? murder? republicanism? Mallory? cats?

is the problem that you just don't think a town should have a name like this? or you think it is a word that should not be used at all?

does the word seem to speak of what happens there? or what sort of people live there? or who is welcome there?

Is this word also: a proper noun other than the place (person? or thing?)? A verb? An adverb? Does it have a double meaning- in addition to being a place, does it also have a different definition?

Have you always been upset when hearing this word? Or did something happen that caused you to dislike this word? Have you said this word a lot? Is the word hard to pronounce?

I was hoping you'd answer whether the place is also a name for a person OR thing, so...

Is the name also a name of a person? Famous person? Person you know? Person you knew?

Is the name of the place also a thing? An object? A weapon? Something that does harm to others? Something that everyone knows about?

Something happened that caused you to dislike this word. Was this something emotionally traumatizing? Did it cause you any sort of pain? Physical? Mental?

In order for someone to be upset about hearing this word, would the same thing have to happen to them?

So, the name is also an intangible noun?
Is it a state, a quality, an idea, a thought, a feeling or a concept?
Taken from its context, would most people consider this noun having a positiv or negative value to it?

Taken from its context, would most people consider this noun having a positiv or negative value to it?the other thing the noun refers to is liked by some & disliked by others. many [people are neutral toward it

Do you have any relevant phobias? Any relevant superstitions (along the lines of "The Scottish Play")?

Will you feel the same irritation when this puzzle is solved, and the name of the city appears on the screen? If I were to say the name of the city to you now, would you feel the same irritation?

Just to check: The name, is it also one noun, ie not composed of two or more words/names?
Does the name remind you of something you have experienced yourself? If so was something inflicted on you or someone else? Could it be described as: a loss, unjustice, unfairness, frustration, threat, sorrow, persecution, suffering, bad habits, stupidity, death, embarrassment?

Ok i'm guessing the people of this particular city get on with their lives without being upset by the name of their city or what it conjures up?

Is it just something personal with you why it would lead to your annoyance?

Some personal trauma? lost opertunity? lost love? a reminder or some personal disability or inadequecies?

This one is tough...I feel I am going around in circles.

Let me see what I have so far, according to your responses...

Someone mentioned a place to you that unmade your day. It was one noun, proper and intangible, and it was homonymous with something bad in English.

The place meant something different to you--an incident that you would like to forget, and one which possibly would require you to make an unpleasant response (is this because you would have to say--ugh! I can't believe you mentioned that word!)?

Something bad happened in the place (a city), but according to hints we need not focus on what happened, but your relation to it (is it a phobia of yours? is it something you would not like to think about because it deals with your final days? death? growing old?)

Another hint stated that even though someone was harmed there, we should not focus on this person (this means we should not delve into history and look at specific events like holocaust? 9/11?)?

You also stated that it could be a fictional city that would work as well? (I am confused with this, does this mean we could make up a city name using the word that displeases you and bother you as well)? I'm don't quite follow that hint, since it was a real place that the person mentioned that bothered you...

Would looking through an atlas help--maybe for words that you might not like?

I'm glad to know that I am not the only one OWT!

The other meaning of the city name, is it:
attribute of an object?
abstract concept?
natural phenomenon?
characteristic of a person?

Is the "bad" word in English? Would it be as "bad" in other languages? Would you have the same reaction if this word ( which may no longer sound as the name of the city ) was said in a different language?

Let me see what I have so far, according to your responses...

Someone mentioned a place to you that unmade your day. yesIt was one noun, proper and intangible, yes and it was homonymous with something bad in English.{Well, not everyone would consider it bad. And as for being homonynous, the problem is that the city name is also the name of something else. FIND OUT WHAT!!}


The place meant something different to you--an incident that you would like to forget, and one which possibly would require you to make an unpleasant response (is this because you would have to say--ugh! I can't believe you mentioned that word!)? no

Something bad happened in the place (a city), but according to hints we need not focus on what happened, but your relation to it (is it a phobia of yours? no. And it's IRREL wherther anythin g bad happened in that city is it something you would not like to think about because it deals with your final days? no death? no growing old? no)

Another hint stated that even though someone was harmed there, we should not focus on this person (this means we should not delve into history and look at specific events like holocaust? 9/11?)? Again, it's irrel what happened there

You also stated that it could be a fictional city that would work as well? yes. Or a fictional person(I am confused with this, does this mean we could make up a city name using the word that displeases you and bother you as well)? no I'm don't quite follow that hint, since it was a real place that the person mentioned that bothered you... The puzzle could work the same way if it were an imaginary city whose name bothered me

Would looking through an atlas help--maybe for words that you might not like? no

so, i am assuming that it wouldn't be helpful to go through an atlas to find names that might fit (with the description of the noun as being intangible, personal, and homonymous with something bad in the English language)?

did your annoyance with this word have something to do with a past personal experience of some sort?
boyfriend? bad breakup?
marriage? divorce? ex-husband?

does the word include a person's name? a person with whom you had been close? a person with whom you are no longer close?

When you say that neither you or your friends have been "there", is "there" the place, the noun or both? Have you really asked you friends?
Would asking people if they been in "name of place/noun" be an ambiguous question? If you referred to the noun, would that question be considered rude/strange/private/condescending?
Would the question refer to something that you have experienced?

so, i am assuming that it wouldn't be helpful to go through an atlas to find names that might fit (with the description of the noun as being intangible, personal, and homonymous with something bad in the English language)?Your assumption is correct

did your annoyance with this word have something to do with a past personal experience of some sort? yes
boyfriend? no bad breakup? no
marriage? no divorce? noex-husband? no. All these suggestions are very OWT (on the wrong track)

does the word include a person's name? no a person with whom you had been close? no a person with whom you are no longer close? no

When you say that neither you or your friends have been "there", is "there" the place, the noun or both? The place Have you really asked you friends? OK, you're right--as far aas I know, they haven't been there. What's more important is that whether they or I have been there is irrelevant
Would asking people if they been in "name of place/noun" be an ambiguous question? no If you referred to the noun, would that question be considered rude/strange/private/condescending? none of these
Would the question refer to something that you have experienced? yope

would it be helpful to try to figure out what your past personal experience was? i.e. to list out things that might have bothered you?

did your experience have to do with another person? an animal? maybe a dog--(I know a lot of people who are bothered by dogs). an event? a teaching? advice?

ok, so it was an event that annoyed you.
was it in highschool or before? graduate school/ postgraduate school? recently? does time of event even matter?

was the event:
political in nature?
some sort of protest?
a type of parade?
religious in nature?
grand opening of a new store? (New Starbucks, perhaps...that would annoy me!)
a birthday event?

was the event:

religious in nature? no
grand opening of a new store? (New Starbucks, perhaps...that would annoy me!) no. I generally like stores, esp. those selling food or clothing, & I particularly like Starbuck's because I love their apple fritters & marble cake with whipped cream. Why on earth would anyone be annoyed at an opening of a new Starbuck's copmplete with nice rich cakes? Are you on a diet??
a birthday event? no. By the way, while "event" is Ok, the annoying item also fits into a narrower general category that would be much more helpful

Is it likely anyone else would be annoyed by the event? Is there anything specific to you that made it annoying?
Is it likely this event has ever happened to me? To anyone else on the forum? Are we likely to have a similar word which reminds us of our annoying event, and we don't like hearing?
Does the noun refer to the thing that caused the annoying thing? something that was present while you were annoyed?

HINT: You've now established thast the city name annoyed me by reminding me of something else with that name. this may seem uninteresting & unsurprising; so I'll add that the other thing annoyed me in a way that ONLY things in its very specialized category could annoy someone. So--find the catergory.

Nice puzzles you set. Definitely "lateral" <smile>

Questions:
Did someone suggest you should visit this town / place?
Did some-one close to you "pass away" in this town/city (in for example, the state of Michigan?)?
Did someone suggest that it was an appropriate place for that person to die?
Was it suggested that as a result, the deceased person would not have far to travel on his/her final journey and this upset you?

Are there any relevant circumstances during this day of yours, or is this just a normal day? For instance, if I had bet on a horse that had been beaten by one called, say, Reynoldstown, I might not like to hear that name again ... anything along these lines?

Is the event a personal one? or does it involve more than one person? (consider a list of numbers asked!)

Is it an everyday event? or a once in a while type of thing? Is it regular (ie happens according to a rough timetable) or random like london buses?

IS it culturally based... ie more liekly to happen in the US? or in UK, or in France or in an arab country?

The very specialized category, is it a category of something visible? tangible? audioable?
In this specific puzzle, is it a category of: people? animals? objects? events? -isms? stereotypes?
Do you put yourself in this category? Your friends? Family? People you don't like?

OK.... question mistook... let me put it another way... does the event require one person to take place? two people? three people? etc etc etc... The original event probably required many people (hard to say how many), but one person would suffice for the reminder.

IS it culturally based... ie more liekly to happen in the US? or in UK, or in France or in an arab country? The particular event is much more ;likely to happen in the US, but the same sort of thing, based on a similar event, could happen anywhere.

I'm a little confused...could you recap?
As far as I know we have established that someone mentioned a place name which also has another meaning. The other meaning is something audible, which annoys you for a particular reason. Is this right? I'm sure I have missed some details though, as I have only just started following this puzzle.

I'm a little confused...could you recap? Add the following to the puzzle description: Although the actual sitaution involved mention of an actual city, this puzzle could in principle work as well with mention of an imaginary place (or person or thing). What happened in the city is irrelevant. Lots of people could be annoyed this way; my myriad quirks are irrelevant. But spound is relevant. Someone who has been deaf all his life could not be annoyed in this way.
As far as I know we have established that someone mentioned a place name which also has another meaning. The other meaning is something audible, which annoys you for a particular reason.

Is the title of the song also the name of the place? Or a line from the song? Or is the place name just mentioned in the song or its title? Does the place name remind you of a song you hate? Do you have a personal interest in the song? Did you write it? Sing it? Or someone you knew wrote it/sang it?

Keep in mind that for the puzzle to work, it practiucally has to be a sone. A book title or article title weouldn't work. Think about why not. Do you have a personal interest in the song? no Did you write it? no. I've never written a song Sing it? no Or someone you knew wrote it/sang it? no

Is there some reason why you would be forced to listen to the song you hate? Did the person mentioning it make you realise that you would have to listen to it for the whole day (thus unmaking your day)? Were you at some performance venue? Is the person who mentioned it singing the song? On the radio? In person? Are they talking abut the song, or talking about the place?
