The Balance!

This is a game dlaire introduced to the Random Thoughts thread!  The questioner provides two definitions of the same word, preferably linked by "isn't that the same as."  The guesser figures out the word!  Some examples from Random Thoughts:

dlaire: It helps you build the building, isn't it the same thing as being a magnificent bird?  [Crane]

satyreyes: A fragment of mathematics, a unit of quantitation... isn't that just the same thing as making you feel more inert, less sensitive?  [Number]

dlaire: Escaping from troubles and pain into the land where nothing exists, an act of cowardness... isn't that just the same thing as the biggest sacrifice of human, the bravest thing a person can do when life is unbearable without destroying that person's humanity?  [Suicide] or [dreaming]

satyreyes: A winged messenger of peace... plunged from the sky.  [Dove]

Paradox: The thing which once pierced the hearts of salmon and buffalo alike...  isn't that the same as the someone who takes the reins when there's a job to be done?  [Spearhead]

And now, try this on for size!

A hotel surrounded by snow or sand, enormous and luxurious... isn't that the same thing as an option, sometimes the very last one, exercised in time of great need?  (For that matter, aren't they both the same thing as putting the same objects in a different order?)

Resort!

A thing that the powerful have... Isn't that the same as what one could say if one was unsure about whether they would do something or not?

DOH! Sorry I don't know how I missed such an obvious thing.

I will try to do it right next time.

Back to Paradox's riddle:

I'm not sure about this one.  Could it be an axe?  That word is slang for guitar, and I imagine someone wielding that word might be the stalwart of an adventuring party, but this isn't a very elegant solution and probably isn't the intended one.  Paradox?

Re: The Balance!

Player?!

The bread and wine used in the Eucharist.  Isn't that the same as the basic assumptions or principles of a subject?

Re: The Balance!

Still don't get it.  Rock is stalwart, I guess, but what group were you talking about?  emot-confused

Tamago, are you looking for sacraments?

I can only assume that stalwart can also mean as stead as a Rock but it is a bit of a stretch.

Sorry satyre but not the word I was after, it's more...fundamental than that. emot-biggrin

Not the answer I was looking for but while the bread and wine used in the Eucharist is considered the Body of Christ, there is another name it goes by that fits the second part better.

The bread and wine used in the Eucharist Isn't that the same as the basic assumptions or principles of a subject?

I thought of "fundamental" for the second half, but I can't find any source that says the wafer and wine are called "fundamental" or the "fundaments."  But I've never been to a Eucharist, so I guess I wouldn't know... is this the answer you were going for?

Re: The Balance!

The answer is elements. I may have chosen an obscure term for the Eucharist.  I will use something easier this time.

A big basket. Isn't that the same as a restraint that confines?

Re: The Balance!

This one I know!  It's gotta be hamper.  Good one!

I'm gonna start numbering these so we can talk about them more easily.  We've had twelve, so this is:

#13
The earth, as contrasted with air or with sea;
Chopped up to a powder, like spices for tea.

#13 is ground, to be sure!

#14: Fuji, Katahdin, Everest and Washington... Do you not do them too when you get on top of your lover?

The first time you looked at her curves you were hooked
And the glances you took, took hold of you and demanded that you stay
And sunk in their teeth, bit your heart and released
Such a charge that you need another touch, another taste, another fix

Re: The Balance!

Not positive, but I think #15 is flak!  Very nice!  emot-smile

#16
Deific Egyptian of malice and menace;
What six games might make in a quick round of tennis;
To firm up or harden; to put on the table;
The place where you'd find a mid-shooting Clark Gable.
