    Did you get a different verse for "man ___ lost" than the one that was previously posted? The one about being bald didn't seem right.

    The bald man line fits in nicely, but does it make any sense in the actual context of this puzzle?

    Oh and about the bingo clues... I got a place name. Is that what you got?

    Oh and good grief. Right after I posted this I realized what the ZZZZZ meant. Niiiice.

    For the bingo card, I think the part I'm missing must be related to the ZZZZ comment...there's something in the puzzle that suggests a city in the Pacific Northwest, but it's missing a few letters and the answer feels forced to me. Is this the same location that others here are getting, and if not, any advice?

    If by "context of this puzzle" you mean having to do with silver or keys, then no, it doesn't make much sense. But then neither do several of the other verses. Until one figures out how the verses need to be utilized (if they need to be used at all), forcing conditions on them beyond the obvious typographical ones may be premature. If you can find another verse that fits in that location, more power to you.

    I have no way of knowing if the verses I have chosen are unique, and I have very little desire in trying to prove their uniqueness. All I can say is that for the given font type and size, I have verses that match the locations of unredacted text, as well as obey the margins and letter/word breaks formed by the text-balloon connectors.

    I still don't know what the zzz's mean...? But I got a complete location from the Bingo Card, in that area, that was't forced at all & was complete: beginning & ending with the letter E (hope that helps).

    Sorry, I don't know how to do that "hidden" function?

    Mysty - to do spoilers type in "[" then "spoiler" then "]" before what you want to hide and "[" and "/spoiler and "]" after it.

    Molnar: You're probably right on all counts about the scripture. It issss odd that multiple versions are used. I wonder if the text-balloon connectors are there just to show us where word breaks are or if there's more significance than that. It will probably make sense when it make sense.

    Mysty and Calvin:


    Also, I don't know if everybody already found this, and it may disappear after I post it, but

    Okay, I FINALLY got the zzz's reference... LOL.... I agree niiiiice!

    Well, I think the disorder was absolutely necessary to weed out the useful factors - with duplication indicating the starting point.

    Now, what to do with it? File it away until the other puzzles are solved I guess.....
