A single word connects these images:

That thing you sleep on Evidence of combustion.
Place where you can pile your trash Those things on your keyboard or mouse right now
Eating utensil Road sign
Part of a boat Part of a recreational vehicle

The final two aren't as intuitive but the same word can be found within them:
(You can click on either for a larger version.)
Ancient structures Real celestial bodies

What is the word, and what are the connections?

The answer is:


The title refers to:

Pickup Truck


Truck Bed
Fire Truck
Dump Truck
Hand Truck (Also know as a hand cart)
Fork Truck (Fork lift)
Truck Stop
Skateboard Trucks

Finally(very clever by the way):


  • $\begingroup$ Truck is what I was thinking of, yes. The last two are a little different, remember. There is more than one moon in that picture. $\endgroup$ Apr 13, 2017 at 20:31

    $\begingroup$ Change moon to moons in your answer and connect the two words, you'll get the word which means "Showing irrational behaviour". $\endgroup$ Apr 14, 2017 at 7:25

Think I got it:




Pick up time


TBO: Burning time
Waste of time
Time on your hands
Fork in Time
Stop time
Seven times table?

Note: This was wrong and the images not included here were edited in after to make the answer more unique

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe: Burning Time for the Fire, Time on Hands for the hand, Spacetime for the celestial objects? $\endgroup$ Apr 13, 2017 at 18:28
  • $\begingroup$ @TwoBitOperation ah thanks, hadn't heard of a couple of those $\endgroup$ Apr 13, 2017 at 18:29
  • $\begingroup$ @n_palum oops, thanks. And its a fork in time $\endgroup$ Apr 13, 2017 at 18:44
  • $\begingroup$ +1 for thinking of an answer I clearly never considered. I've added two more images that may help improve the question / narrow down the possibilities. $\endgroup$ Apr 13, 2017 at 19:29

    $\begingroup$ @EngineerToast yeah re those, can you maybe tell us what they are? Doesn't have to be the specific word, just what it is in general. Its hard to tell $\endgroup$ Apr 13, 2017 at 19:33

Wild guess, is it:



King-sized Mattress/bed


Orange, colour of the royal family/king of The Netherlands


Landfill/hill, referring to the children's game King of the Castle


Hand of the King, GoT reference


Fork, a move in chess, the game of kings


Stop, what peasants do when approaching a king, not something a king does


7 wonders, fit for kings


8 moons of Neptune, god/king of the sea

Apologies for the bad formatting, the spoiler thingies were being weird




Like a red pickup truck?


Red bed, a type of rock
Red Fire
'red trash' is a term for a redhead, according to the Urban dictionary warning: NSFW!
Red fork is a town in Oklahoma
Red sign
Red Pyramid
The Moon turns red during an eclipse.

Since the OP has already commented on which is the right answer, I just thought I'd throw my two cents in for the last two images:

The seven wonders of the world will leave you awesTruck
Some puzzlers seem moonsTruck for these types of puzzles.


is it:

a lift?


- for title picking up > lifting
- bed lift? > like adjustable beds
- fire lift > like the elevators firemen use
- trash/garbage truck lift > are they the things on the sides of the trash trucks that picks up the bins and dumps them in instead of people?
- hand lift > the things people use in like um warehouses, like fork lifts
- fork lift
- stoplift is like a shoplifting prevention program
- idk what that thing is but it looks like its a spring or air pressured device that could life things up?
- truck lift > like the beds of a truck that dump stuff out
- random pyramids thing may be the fact that they needed lifts to build them? or some type of pulley system
- moon lift is like the whole idea that there should be an elevator you can take to the moon or something like that

idk if this is right but some of them fit?


Mom, get the camera.

Isn't it

global warming?

Hardly a word if you ask me. Skip over the rest of this if you don't want to know my answer. I have no idea why ">!" didn't make it a spoiler.

The bed is warm the fire is warm
the hand is the hand humans have in global warming
the other stuff is all something that contributes greatly to global warming.
The fork for example is our food
the landfill is pollution
the other two are industry - I don't know what those are.
The bonus images are civilization and other celestial bodies.
The bodies are vulnerable to warming.
Civilization is the cause of global warming.

Am I right?
