# What word am I thinking?

I'm thinking of a word you can spell on one hand.

If you add "e" or ɛ, it might describe the man who lived here:

Add the sound of the world's favorite drink, and you'll find something often worn here:

Add the first 3 letters of this island's mechanical secret, and you'll find a common setting:

Add The One Who Originated and drink some with Coke.
Yes it's spelled wrong but you'll be too gone to notice.

What is the word and why?

Is it:

Urban

I'm thinking of a word you can spell on one hand.

5 letters in urban for 5 fingers on one hand.

If you add "e" or ɛ, it might describe the man who lived here:

An urbane man would live in that "courteous and refined [...] manner."

Add the sound of the world's favorite drink, and you'll find something often worn here:

Tea is the world's favourite drink (after water) and makes a T sound (the letter t)
T + urban = Turban
Turbans are worn predominately by Sikhs and Muslims as a religious practice, and here is an image of the Muslim population.

Add the first 3 letters of this island's mechanical secret, and you'll find a common setting.

A sub, as in submarine. The island uses submarines as a weapon.
Sub + urban = suburban
The suburbs are common area [citation needed].

Add The One Who Originated and drink some with Coke.

I have no idea. I think "The One Who Originated" would be some religious reference, like Adam or Eve. I also think "Coke" refers to cocaine, rather than the famous carbonated non-alcoholic drink. (and, for completion's sake, it's definitely not coal coke), as you wouldn't drink something with another drink.

Also, should I unhide this as it's not the answer?

The hint:

> You want a hint to get you started?? The solution starts with you!
I think this means it is where I am. Since I am on the internet, I am in an urban area.
It may also mean "The solution starts with you" ("u"). Urban starts with "u" ("you").

• Correct for the most part! What does the ɛ refer to? A hint for "The One Who Originated" is that it's musical, not religious. – Calvin's Hobbies Mar 15 '15 at 21:38
