Rand got me too. I finished the rest of the quiz, so I knew it started with an "r" and ended with a "d". Tried a whole bunch of middle letters until I hit upon it! Fun quiz!

It's an allusion to wartime pilots trying to make it back home with a damaged plane, maybe one wing hanging by a thread or propellers not working...so, on a wing and a prayer.

I am tempted to argue that "expert" is not the primary meaning of the word "guru" - that would be "leader", "master", "teacher". The meaning "expert" is secondarily acquired, I would say...

I agree. I think guru is more of a guide (spiritual or not) or perhaps a mentor. (Sharing their life-lessons)

"Guru" is commonly used in the US as someone you seek out whose knowledge of a subject transcends your own, an expert. Car gurus, computer gurus, network gurus, etc.

...guru definitely not an expert in the uk, neither do we give coal to naughty children (don't give it to good ones either as it is a fossil fuel and not eco!)...not sure why imac is an apple offering, could have been ipad...

No one REALLY gives coal to children, it's just part of the Santa story. I mean, maybe some people did way back in the day, but not now certainly. As for iPad, it doesn't end in "c" to loop back to the beginning of the quiz.

Waaaait, these chain quizzes link the last word back to the first? I never realized that, and it didn't matter until I also tried iPad over and over again. The rules don't say it loops back...

The clue for guru needs to be changed, that's just not really what the word means. And while it looks like most people got it, there has to be a better clue for fast, right? I kept trying to think of words that meant non-food, or decorative food that isn't meant to be eaten.

I got it though be reading somewhere that the last word links to the first aswell. So apple and i _ _ c, was enough to think of the answer. But originally I had no clue what was meant (might be a language thing)
