Shortly before the movie "Cloverfield" came out, there was a huge viral campaign to leak out bits and pieces of what the movie was about, since no one knew what the monster was going to be. It was fun to try and figure things out between the Slusho clues, "leaked" photos and clues embedded in the trailers. Reading the message boards where people shared their discoveries, I was amazed at clues people were able to find by using technology I had never heard of before. I think it was an audio analysis of a trailer where the person ran the item through a specific analyzer and discovered a waveform hidden image that led to another clue. Pretty cool viral campaign for that movie. All I managed to do was notice a normal-looking license plate number on a car in the trailer where the statue of liberty head flies down the street that you could type in as a url and find another website with clues.

Tiredofnicks: Bullsh|t, it's mental masturbation. I used to subscribe to Games magazine and completed challenges like these before the internet came around. It's not real fulfillment, this is experience talking.

It's a waste of time and effort, especially when these same people could be using those skills for human benefit instead of a fleeting sense of glory.

After finishing hundreds of puzzle books, my experience is that it's busywork. I threw them all away, with no regret. There are simply more and better rewarding pursuits than chasing your tail like a dog.

I heard about this puzzle years ago. At this point, it's just an endless game nothing more. At least a dog gets to catch it's own tail now and again, these people are being sent on wild goose chases without real reward.

The author of this article designed the code... reason I know
#1. Writes like its a mythology from the designers view... (ex: describes the beauty and wisdom of the archaic crap one would need to know)it is crap
2. Calls it a WORLD MYSTERY... well maybe in the sense its online... not necissarily because of anything else. That's kind of trumping it a bit...
#3 knows which posts on reddit were clues... come on... you just knew...
#4 describes poetically the per
on that was deciphering this "world mystery" code... like the author would care... enough to transcribe inane details...
Chase your tails if you would like...

I would be a little hacked off (pun intended) if it turned out to be a Nigerian prince needing help to get his millions out of the country.

I solved both those old ones, and helped write the one coming on Jan 4/14...

...and if you believe THAT one? I have a nice bridge to sell you!

Interesting stuff @drawman61! I read the whole thing & was enlightened.
