A neologism?

*kaylee kitteh ducks the inevitable lot of cheezburgurz being thrown for stating the obvious*...ooh, cheezburgurz. *nomz*

Hehe...sorry.


You do not like the feeling of skeutenk. Is it a feeling = emotion? Sadness? Anger? Depression? Illness?

Or feeling = touch? Is it an object of some kind? Solid? Liquid? Gaseous?

A neologism? YES! There's a little bit more to it though.

You do not like the feeling of skeutenk. Correct. Is it a feeling = emotion? no Sadness? no Anger? no Depression? no Illness? no

Or feeling = touch? Yes Is it an object of some kind? no Solid? Liquid? Gaseous?

Is skeutenk a texture?
Is the touch initiated by you? By something/someone else?

Does it cause pain? Do most people like the feeling of skeutenk? Do you know anyone who does?

Is it something like breaking a nail?

Would you get the feeling if both shoes were tied too loosely? Or to tightly? Or is it the unequality that bothers you? Is it the situation when one knot have gotten loose and you've had to retie it, meaning the laces on this shoe are now tighter than on the other?

Is it the situation when one knot have gotten loose and you've had to retie it, meaning the laces on this shoe are now tighter than on the other? This exactly!

*****SPOILER*****

Skeutenk is the situation when one knot has gotten loose and you've had to retie it, meaning the laces on this shoe are now tighter than on the other.

Thanks to Balin especially, and Galfisk, Shez and others.

Good puzzle!

And you're right -- I hate that feeling, to the point that if one of my shoes comes untied, I simply retie both shoes.

I generally tie my shoes loose enough that this doesn't bother me--i.e. having to retie one of the laces doesn't make that foot feel squeezed, it just makes that shoe feel more secure on my foot (which is a good thing). Or else I just don't notice the skeutenk.

Interesting -- your "skeutenk" and the early neologism "sklurp period" (Peter's?) both about shoes and when they get (re)tied. Any connection between the beginnings of the words, or is that just a happy coincidence?

Actually I just looked "shoe" up here and saw "skeu".
