# A quick visual riddle to distract me from all this snow

The images below can be connected by a single word.

What is the word and what are the connections?

• So many allusions, in one word? Thought it was erf and then woof and then saddle. All wrong of course. How many letters?

• I guess you could say the paint color was a RED herring... Dec 28, 2017 at 14:33
• What is a dodgeball? Can someone explain? Jan 3, 2018 at 10:38
• It's a game (and a movie (Wikipedia), not to be confused (as I did) with Rollerball (Wikipedia)). Jan 3, 2018 at 11:10

The word is

point

Needle:

Its end is a point.

Hand:

The finger is in the act of pointing.

Car:

The point system in driving is a system of demerits for driving offenses.

Foot:

The picture shows the reflexology points of the foot.

Curve:

The point of inflection is where the curve changes from curving upward to curving downward.

Picture of room:

The picture shows perspective with a vanishing point in the middle.

Meat:

A point cut of beef is the second cut of the beef brisket.

Paint:

Some paint brushes have a pointed tip.

• Some good connections +1 but the answer's not "point". There's a much better fit (although one clue is a bit cruel... I think I'll add the knowledge tag actually, though the remaining clues should be sufficient. Dec 28, 2017 at 8:59
• The car seems to be Dodge Challenger. A classic muscle car and a superb play on words.
