Nice. Now I'll have to think a while about the f(x) question. Just a small pointer maybe?
Spoiler
f(x) = ceiling
f(x) = palindrome
f(x) = ? (I don't know yet)
f(x) = breast
f(dessert) = distress
Am I going in the right direction?

First of all, read the question once again, very carefully, look especially on the
f(x) = x
part, because I think you misunderstood something a bit. But I also see you sort of found the clue. Think about synonyms to the words you gave.

I think I've found the third answer.
And you mean:
Spoiler
f(height above ground) = top
?
I'll need to sleep on this one

Still not exactly. It is said that for the four given values of x, it is true that f(x) = x. In other words
Spoiler
f(height above ground) = height above ground
and so on. And think about some synonyms in the fifth equation.

I think I got the idea. This is my very first post here and I don't know how to hide text yet, so I won't be too specific. I understand that the first step is to find a synonym of "you", is it right? (hope it is!)
