I assume you mean abbreviating the months to three days, like Jul. Aug. Sep. etc?
Nice answer :D, but nope! Keep trying!
PS. think poetry.

PS. My lists remaining (only 'cos I was losing track myself):
EIGHT: C, D, S, W, X, Z (still, but you're so close)
FIFTEEN: scooter, lighthouse, motorcycle, skyscraper, gasworks, windmill
SIXTEEN: October, April, March, July, May, August


I will put a new list up when either mine or Otakuman's are finished.


*smacks forehead* OH. April is the only one with 30 days.

Ding! Ding! Ding!
Alfador wins a cookie!
A nice one, not one of those nasty ones that tracks your movements across the internet.

Clues for the remaining two, because I got a new list to post...
EIGHT: Ask Theodor Geisel... He sure knows his alphabet!
FIFTEEN: You'll need to pull this list apart to see how it comes together.

... :kiss:

FIFTEEN: A skyscraper is the only artifact whose primary purpose is not to convert one type of energy into another, but merely to provide space.
Scooter and motorcycle: chemical/electric to kinetic energy
Lighthouse: electric/chemical to light
Gasworks: chemical to electrical (or if you mean just a facility for pumping gas, then electrical to kinetic)
Windmill: kinetic to electrical (for modern windmills; old style was just transmitting kinetic energy from wind to grain via wind blades, grinding stones, and gears.)

EIGHT: C, D, S, W, X, Z (still, but you're so close)
FIFTEEN: scooter, lighthouse, motorcycle, skyscraper, gasworks, windmill

EIGHT: D is the only one that doesn't have the same shape as its lower case equivalent. Cc, Dd, Ss, Ww, Xx, Zz

FIFTEEN: Scooter is the only word that cannot be split into two words. light house, motor cycle, sky scraper, gas works, wind mill.

Correct on both counts! Well done!

I believe I promised some new lists...
NINETEEN: Io, Titan, Ganymede, Callisto, Amalthea, Europa
TWENTY: caper, sowed, wares, wired, water, dozen
TWENTY-ONE: crocodile, penguin, possum, snail, echidna, turtle
TWENTY-TWO: leg, glove, shoe, cap, thumb, ear
TWENTY-THREE: Helium, Xenon, Argon, Chlorine, Krypton, Neon
TWENTY-FOUR: ladder, wheelbarrow, bottle, pocket, dumpster, tank


OtakuMan's lists:
A-ONE: Astro Boy, Black Jack, Cyborg 009, Metropolis, Wonder 3, Unico
A-TWO: YattaMan, ZendaMan, YattodetaMan, TekkaMan, OtasukeMan, ItadakiMan
A-THREE: Grave of the Fireflies, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro
A-FOUR: Case Closed, Bleach, Crayon Shin-Chan, Samurai Champloo, Trigun, Naruto

I think I solved number 3...

PS. Alfador, you seem to have somehow put on my Overthinking Helmet. Here, let me help you with that... /CLUNK/ Annoying thing, I don't know why it's still laying around here... ;]

Titan: not a moon of Jupiter. Is the largest moon of Saturn.

21: Possum, the only non-egg-layer.
23: Chlorine is the only peasant gas.
24: A tank is the only one that can move on its own; the others require force to be applied from without.

TWENTY-TWO: leg, glove, shoe, cap, thumb, ear
TWENTY-FOUR: ladder, wheelbarrow, bottle, pocket, dumpster, tank

TWENTY-TWO: Leg does not go inside another element of the list.
TWENTY-FOUR: Ladder is not a container. A more fun answer is that its the only one that has holes, from a topological perspective, but I'm pretty sure its the first answer. :P

Correct on 19 and 24! I like your second answer to 24, but the first was indeed the answer I was after. You could argue that both answers suggest the same thing...
As for 22? That's an interesting guess... but no.

Correct on 21 and 22 (took me a while to realise you meant as opposed to noble gases)!
Fair enough answer on 24, I guess the word "tank" was a little ambiguous.

That leaves lists Twenty and Twenty-Two up for grabs.

Just a stab in the dark, but "dozen" is the only number word.

Sorry Internutter. Worth a shot, though.

Clue-y clues:
TWENTY: Get to the heart of the problem.
TWENTY-TWO: is already a clue!

Twenty: "wired" has an I and an E. The others are all a/e or o/e.

'dozen' is the only one for which the middle three letters don't form another word. Ape, owe, are, ire, ate.

Alfador has it! :mrgreen:

I... suppose...
oh, you mean like a pant leg, or a thumb on a glove? Good guess, but nope.

For Twenty-Two, I'll give you another clue clue...

?!?...

I've been coming back to this one for the better part of a week, and I STILL have no idea what the answer for S_P's list is!!! I don't even know where to begin!
I swear you've just pulled a bunch of words out of the dictionary at random. Is that last "leg" actually part of the list?
(These games are much easier to make than they are to solve.)

...
Hang on, I just put them into a search engine... and came up with this.
Ha ha! I knew there was something familiar about it!!! Good on ya! :mrgreen:

(at least you didn't Rickroll me.)

Reposting these, now with hints in Invisitext. I hate to see something go unfinished!
TWENTY FIVE: turquoise, plum, aubergine, heliotrope, saffron, olive
{Source?}
TWENTY SIX: Bubble Bobble, Arkanoid, Qix, New Zealand Story, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong
{Who made what?}
TWENTY SEVEN: Reykyavik, Canberra, Seoul, Washington, Cairo, Copenhagen
{A little top-heavy, don't you think?}
TWENTY EIGHT: milk, tallow, wool, eggs, silk, wax
{What do you have to do to get them?}
TWENTY NINE: 1236, 0723, 0840, 2271, 1542, 2028
{Peace-lovers would have trouble with this one.}
THIRTY: tail, cut, assemble, shine, shadow, ghost
{Only one of these is missing something.}
