How about accepting "lockjaw" for the one about part of the body freezing? :)

yeah all I could think of was "seizure". Maybe instead of "part of the body that freezes" it could be "part of the body that has been frozen".

I disagree. Something can freeze because of exposure to a low temperature or freeze in that it no longer moves, like a rusted bolt, or your jaw when you've got lockjaw. As the definition is written, lockjaw should satisfy. When I tore my rotator cuff and it healed in a manner that prevented a full range of motion, I was treated for a "frozen shoulder" by an orthopedic surgeon. Unless the definition is reworded, lockjaw should be acceptable. There endeth the lesson.

It is not the same thing indeed, but that is not the point. It comes down to how to interpret freeze, when hypothermia wasnt it (which i didnt really expect) i started thinking about freezing as clamped up aswell, unable to move. And epilepsy came to mind.

Again, i tried hypothermia, then lockjaw..

Bootleg should be accepted for illegally distilled liquor
+1
level 58

I believe bootlegging specifically refers to the illegal transportation/distribution, not the distilling. Bootlegging is smuggling.

Got all except ghostwriter. Embarrassingly enough, remembered it about 0.4 seconds after the timer ran out. Almost missed high-level celebrity - tried A-Lister, which is apparently common even if not a compound word. My brain died.

A person who imitates just does things in the style of someone else (like using the other person's voice), where as the answer really implies someone who does the same thing as someone else - like write an essay, use the same pickup lines, or even buy the same car.
