All in one smooth motion, puts the heel of hand at chin, and pushes upwards producing an enormous, juicy "Sneeee-r-r-r-rk!" sound from the nose and a grinding "Gnnnnnn-nnnn-nnn" from clenched teeth. Continuing with the whole hand flat on the forehead, pushes upward and backwards, fingers becoming entwined with the hair. And pulls out a tuft of hair.

takes deep breath...exhales..

OK, guys and gals, one more time..

The two threads cannot be merged as they follow different rules.

Thread 1(Letter order CAN be changed, change one letter, produce valid word)

Thread 2(Letter order CANNOT be changed, change one letter, produce valid word)

So, I'll continue it from Elaine Michaels' Threads.


Thread 1: SUET -> STUN -> TUNA
Thread 2: TINY -> TINS -> FINS

Satchit,

Before you rip out too many hairs, maybe these two threads should be split into separate topics. Changing the rules of the game (or in this case adding a parallel thread with different rules) in the middle of 200 responses is asking for trouble.

Thread 1: NEAT -> TEAR
Thread 2: SINS -> SIPS

Hi Scott,
Sorry if I sounded a lil too harsh. No offense intended. Look, I am putting back my tuft in.

And, btw, I didnt change any rules. Only trying to accomodate everyone's whims. But I am at a loss with the last post by zakir.
Should we start a thread 3 for folks who want to put in random words. Something like Word Disassociation??? :roll:

Anyway, for the show to go on, may be the rules must always stay in the posts.

Thread 1(Letter order CAN be changed, change one letter, produce valid word)
NEAT -> TEAR -> DATE

Thread 2(Letter order CANNOT be changed, change one letter, produce valid word)
SINS -> SIPS -> PIPS
