Hi folks, a little neologism for you...

...I regularly Constast and have recently being offered a choice of ways to stop doing so. . Please define the verb to Constast

I will test the quickie paradox by stating that this will not last long

Do many people constast?
Do you constast at your workplace? At home?

I could technically answer yes but I think that it might mislead Time? Effort? Emm doesn't everthing involve time and effort. However not a whole lot of either is required

Is brushing your teeth relevant? Is constasting bad for your teeth? Do you do it without necessarily being aware?

Today is my 6th forum birthday. Sad as I am i decided to see how many puzzles I've hosted in that time and was surprised to learn that my current puzzle is only my 89th. Im my defence I do suffer regular bouts of puzzlers block.

I'm amazed at some of you and your ability to come up with so many puzzles. What's the secret?

Are you chewing something meant to be chewed, like gum? Or something else, like a pencil? Or a part of the mouth, like the tongue or inside of the cheek?

I don't have a "secret" to coming up with puzzles, per se (I explained more in the chatroom), but I keep an eye out for scenarios that would make good puzzles.

Ah, I re read that it's nothing to do with your nails. Back to the drawing board.

You say that it's something you 'have' to do in that "I'd like to stop having to do it." Does it irritate you that you have to do it? Anything to do with weight control?

Do you bite your nails and then crunch the nail between your teeth? I do actually but it's not relevant to this puzzle. Nice to see you back this way Lynne. Hope your back is better, as a long term bad back sufferer I can sympathise

You say that it's something you 'have' to do in that "I'd like to stop having to do it." Does it irritate you that you have to do it? Anything to do with weight control? No to both. Just to explain in case there's any confusion, I have to do this insofar as the alternative is not very pleasant

So your chewing habit isn't rude, right? Does it lead to a negative outcome for you? For other people? Or is it not necessarily negative, but leads you to miss out on a better outcome than what you get the way you do it?

So your chewing habit isn't rude, right? Right Does it lead to a negative outcome for you? Quite the opposite , if I didn't do this I would suffer a negative consequence For other people? No Or is it not necessarily negative, but leads you to miss out on a better outcome than what you get the way you do it? See above but I should say that Constast is only one way to reap this benefit. There are more practical and long term ways of doing so

I think I can save you the trouble of invoking the LTPF list of dental procedures by telling you that my dentist told me recently that I need Root Canal treatment and a crown.

So your next post should tell me what Constast means

is it chewing on the side where you need the root canal? Quite the opposite but enough for me to declare the

************Spoiler******************

On a recent trip to my dentist she advised that she would need to do root canal treatment on a dodgy molar that I have. After the root canal I'd have to get a crown as well. This would set me back the small sum of 1500.

During the check up my dentist said that 'you've probably been subconsciously chewing on the other side of your mouth to avoid the sore tooth'. She was right and a neologism was born.


I bet that Chewing on One Side To Avoid Sore Tooth is something you've all done from time to time.

Thanks for playing.

I chew on one side or the other to avoid the middle because I have a sensitive tooth there. Good puzzle.

Thanks Balin and avoiding a sensitive tooth would work without changing the neo.

There's an advert at the top of this puzzle now offering me cheap dental braces.
