And that level doesn't even exist yet. JetPunk is the physical equivalent of Hotel California; you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.

"Foot" should be an acceptable answer for the unit of length/poem item.

Not really - although 'foot' is a rhythmic section of a line of poetry, it isn't really the rhythmic pattern, which is what the question is asking for.

The mental image of a bunch of people trying to play cricket with kookaburras as bats is quite humorous, so thank you!

I love these too, but I'd love them even more if at least some of them were harder and with plenty of time. You know...instead of racing through them just to get a good time, it would be more like puzzling over a crossword clue, and the puzzling is fun too, and more satisfying when you finally get it (that's what she said).

I think that's what polysemous homonyms are. Not sure though

A pair of true homonyms is homonymous purely by a coincidence (just like leaves and leaves), they must have unrelated etymology.
