Nope. Only allowed to quit once you've mastered the Nations of the World quiz.

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.

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.

... eye, suit, meter...

Yes, although I think for "eye" and "suit" the usages are so different as to make it worthwhile. I'm not sure about "metre", as both uses are about measuring. Not quite as close as "mobile" though!

Still, I'm not sure that it matters.

Yeah, mint condition means just like when something was minted, usually figuratively following the numismatic sales pitch.

Frame, eye, rug and square are figurative uses following the literal use.

Pipe and mobile are examples of the same word, you're just thinking of them differently under specific constraints.

got all but one with over two minutes to spare, then stared at my computer for two minutes before getting 'strand' for abandon / unit of hair with 3 seconds to go!

The organ one got me for a while, but it looks like I wasn't the only one that got stuck on it! "OHH...that kind of organ!"

I hear you! I was blazing through it by just looking at the word on the left side and guessing -- I think sometimes looking at both words can slow me down or confuse me -- but "strand" took me a good while to figure out. I kept thinking of some sort of official measurement or something.
