I'm going to have to look up gastropod, because all I can think of is someone who uses their stomach as a foot...

Hmm, snails. So, actually a quite appropriate moniker. Learn something new every day on Jetpunk.

I AM a grandparent, and I missed it...

Haha that's the only one I missed. I think it's because when I saw parent, I just started thinking about parents, and so grandparents never occurred to me.

I'm a grandparent who missed it too. My first thought was transparent and I never thought about family after that.

True, but if I had to do it all over again I'd skip the parenting part and go straight to grandparent - much more fun. (Just kidding, dear children.)

Took me much longer to get 'bio-' than it should have done. I couldn't get 'photo-' (which also works for that clue) out of my head.

How can something "photodegrade"? I just typed that word in and the spell checker checked it. Is that when light slowly eats something up?

Am still trying not to decide what a megasexual might be. But for the millisecond question centi would be equally good, was the first prefix I tried.

A millipede implies an animal with one thousand feet, but a millimeter is one thousandth of a meter. You can't have it both ways.

Having it both ways is an important part of being a megasexual.

After I got gastropod, that was it. I couldn't think of any other pods. So I got all but one.

Maleficiary/Malevolent should be valid too.
