    Here's a tip: Think of a slot where you usually put bananas in supermarkets (or some smaller shops).

    I got it! I got it! Big thank you, Idiota .
    It is, actually, really easy once you know it, isn't it? But I don't see why it should be hard for Dutch-speaking persons... It isn't THAT much of a language problem I think... But I'll shut up, before I give out any hints .

    And realyy, don't listen to Crazy. He's just, well, Crazy?

    I never intended that to be a hint lol. I was just looking for answers of why it took me so long to finally find out .

    As a side note, Amarth thanked me for helping him, not for providing him with the answer, ok? I hope you all will quit staring at me like that now...

    Don't confuse poor Amarth, it's got nothing to do with the bananas.

    Judging by your earlier post, no it didn't.

    Oh, the banana hint did make sense, in a far-stretched, unneeded kind of way .
    #
    Idiota 11 years ago
    I wouldn't reccomend USING the banana hint. It's a hint, but you'll only see it's a hint when you know the answer.

    Ok, I just confirmed that I know the meaning of 'Var' Equinallin' I've got to say that if you truely read this whole thread, you can't miss the answer. However, this thread is mostly unhelpful. While a puzzle is supposed to be confusing, it's a bit cruel to flat out lie to misslead people. Therefore, rather than giving a new hint, I am going to tell you which hints are useful and which aren't...

    'The answer is right under your nose' - This is true in that the "answer" is obvious, not with reference to a physical location.

    'Sounds Elvish doesn't it?' - Not only is this useless, it wasn't meant as a hint. The words aren't elvish.

    'Something tells me that I should look in the back of the lord of the rings book...' - Not a valid hint, as I said, it has nothing to do with elvish or JRR Tolkein at all.

    'Think of bananas, and you might guess it soon enough.' - This wasn't meant to be a hint either, But after you know the answer you can draw some extremely far fetched connections. In short, forget about anything having to do with bananas and you might guess it soon enough

    'Think of what usually happens to bananas.' - Another banana hint, as stated above, ignore it.

    'What is a word but a collection of ? ' - Definately the best hint.

    'Think of broken teeth' - useless and missleading, ignore it.

    'Must be a problem with Dutch-speaking persons.' - I don't speak dutch, so I can't be sure, but I don't see how any language barrier would interfere with the 'answer'.

    'Here's a tip. It's not a riddle.' - This was actually one of the most usefull hints for me. Untill this hint, I had been thinking about it all wrong.

    'Think of a slot where you usually put bananas in supermarkets (or some smaller shops).' - Another banana reference, useless IMO, ignore it.

    'it's got nothing to do with the bananas.' - truely words of wisdom.

    Well, that's about it. Good luck to those of you still trying to solve this, if there are any.

    Hmmmm... more than a year, and I haven't figured it out.

    Captain_Smile 11 years ago
    I still can't think of it. Im fed up.

    Anonymous1157 11 years ago
    That really helped. I am now looking for an obvious synonym of "collection" that has far-out connections with bananas.

    I still don't get it even after 8 pages of discussion.

    Who ever said anything about a synonym?

    Well somebody said you need a word that means "a collection"!
    #
    Noctudeit 11 years ago
    I'm not sure who said that, but I believe they were referring to the clue 'what is a word but a collection of ?' In other words, what is a word a collection of?

    Stick to the clues that I said are useful.

    Anonymous1157 11 years ago
    But you said that one was the best one...

    No. It should be thought of not as the question "What is a word but a collection of?" but as the question "What is a word but a collection of __________ ?"

    That right there is probably the biggest hint.

    Really? I think that's quite clear. He told us to complete that sentence, so it forms a question.
    #
    Captain_Smile 11 years ago
    .... I THINK I GOT IT!!


    No just joking.... That sentence with the hole (what is a word but a collection of ________ ?) really helped. Im getting closer

    Just reminding you guys that I am one of the people who know the answer, so if you think you've got it, you might as well PM me (or Ville, Quanrian, MageKing17, Idiota and anyone else who knows the answer ).
    #
    Idiota 11 years ago
    I'm just saying that the reason why it took me so long was trying to figure out what to fill in that gap. Quanrian told me I had to see it as a question and wham, I had one of the major pieces of the puzzle fit.

    lol you'll get there eventually. I must say it's a good bit of entertainment just watching you people try to figure it out.

    Lol if you are laughing about me I will simply forget about it

    No no no, we're not laughing at you. We're just... entertained to see you struggle because you haven't figured out the answer.

    "u" and "i" do not go together.

    When I first read that, I thought "WTF?!?", but then I realised the truth behind that post...

    Yes, it is a bit cryptic, but I think it just might help.

    Captain_Smile 11 years ago
    Ooooh

    I think that helped quite a bit. Im getting closer.
