Technically hyperinflation is the rapid devaluation of currency. Things aren't getting more expensive but the paper you use to pay for those things is worth a lot less day-to-day or in true cases of hyperinflation, hour-by-hour. Also, not all content in a web document is hypertext. That refers only to the text that has a web link embedded in the text.

I've been to Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq, and I can say without hyperbole that this is a million times worse than all of them put together.

Hyperspace should work for hyperdrive. There are more works of science fiction which mention the former than the latter.

Hyperlink refers to the address, or "the way to get there" - not the actual content.

Actually, "hyperlink" just refers to the link *to* the address (or, put another way, the link containing the address). The address itself would be a URL.

Technically, "hyperflex" is to bend a joint beyond normal range. "Hyperextend" is to straighten a joint beyond normal range (or to bend it in the opposite direction from which it is intended to bend).

As an unwitting expert in this subject area (I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome; feel free to look it up!), I can confirm that jd2001wizard is completely correct. Because I knew what you meant I eventually got it, but not after trying the correct answer, "hyperflex". I'd ask that you'd change "bend" to "straighten" in the clue, but if not, would you at least accept the correct answer? (And it'd be best if the right answer would be the one displayed too, technically making "hyperextend" just an alternative answer. But since hyperextension is so much more common a health problem, wouldn't it just be nicer to change the clue instead? {Insert sweetly beseaching, eyelash-batting smile here.}

I didnt understand why hypermobile was not accepted at first, got hyperextend later. I most likely have ehlers danlos aswell. (definitely hypermobile and a lot of other symptoms related to joints and ligaments, plus I can get bruises from simply sitting on a chair or leaning against a table,)

Hypodermic does not really mean below the skin, that's subcuteneous. The only context in which it is used medically is for hypodermic needle and even in this setting it's an archaic usage that is being discouraged. In terms of doing operations, like cutting thru skin or obtaining a biopsy it's always subcuteneous.
