Re: Metamorphosis

How about leaving one for me?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Metamorphosis

Hi barbie19022002,

"Juju" appears in many dictionaries, and the Collins Scrabble Checker (which is the main dictionary I use for games like this and has an online version found here) says it's a noun meaning a "West African magic charm or fetish".

Re: Metamorphosis

Hi Bobby,

Which part didn't you get? From AQUA to BLUE or from BLUE to JUJU?

I think the solution for both parts is fairly difficult to find, but I've got one for which all the words are in the online Collins Scrabble Checker.

I had trouble with both. Can I see your solution?

Re: Metamorphosis

That helps with the first part.

But what about blue->juju
