    I just entered my final solution. Slightly different then my last best solution. As I see it there is no other possible answer. If it isn't the solution then I must be doing everything wrong and I need to start over.


    Does anyone else feel like they are going crazy? lol

    Nah.... Just keep changing directions. Even a blind squirrrel finds a nut sometimes.

    Yes, but if it took that blind squirrel a year to find that nut, he would most certainly die or change his diet.

    Nuts or no nuts, the real question is whether or not the insane are to be trusted.

    Good luck with that I can point to one or more herring symbols or relationships on every single page of this chapter.

    While I really enjoy the hunt in general, and think that the way it is structured is clever and will ultimately make sense to most people, it does appear to jump the shark when it comes to its use of herrings, which appear to have indeterminate scope, discovery, and validation. The way fuzzy herrings and self-doubt infuses almost every page makes solving chapters with no clues nearly impossible, which is a pity.

    Every second paragraph has some reference to something that is red, or someone saying "NO LUCK", or the text "there's nothing", or someone mentioning crap (waste/trash) or going to the bathroom (waste/trash). These things could be textual hints at herrings/lack of real information, or they could just be story text. No way to tell.

    I think it simply means the answer is not that complicated.it must be straight forward.

    But it's been a year now and no one has solved it so maybe not so easy lol.

    I think when we all see the solution we are going to kick ourselves

    I'm hoping he releases a key in the alpha today! Even if its a 3 letter possibility it will really help.
