Haven't posted any real head-scratchers for a while, those wordy questions that require spadework or epiphany to nail the solution. In fact, can you make headway with any of these tortuous, and torturous, teasers?
1. What very Australian word can change its doubled vowels for a different set of doubled vowels in order to spell a second very Oz word?
2. What seven-letter verb beginning with S can be scrambled to spell its synonym in a different case?
3. What indoor game, popular during the postwar period, owes its name to the scientific name for a bird of prey?
4. And for those into music: what contemporary US indie rock band draws its name from a Russian short story?
