Thread: CHAPTER 4 - discussion and clues

I think part of this is just another pointer to the number 14 (twice as lucky... lucky number 7, 2x7=14 .. also ties in with other clues with number 2 and 'two times')
The Q is pointer to Kryptos?

2. I agree Kazoo.
Canadian Thanksgiving was on the 14th, twice as lucky 2x7=14 and Valentines Day (Ron confirmed that the year is not important) also on the 14th. Of course 14=N=tsah in navajo=Needle. So which one is where it's at?

Did Homer run out of beer on Friday? I must admit I hadn't looked in the 'fridge' for a while but I'd like to know when it 'dis'appeared.

4. There was beer two weeks ago. I just discovered it missing when I posted about it.

5. Anyone receive rejections? I have to ask because I have stopped submitting anything.

6. Yes, on Tuesday I think.

7. With the new clue you had better re-evaluate the age of the Dutchman clue.

8. I tried, but I must vent, again.
The age of the Dutchman clue was a red herring for many. Everyone was keying on that page to find something, particularly a starting point. Bad choice of a clue for a chapter that is over a year without being solved in a book that has 12 chapters needing to be solved and that is in it's 4th year with only 3 chapters solved. It just goes along with "the answer is easier than you think" clue. Just wrong. Unless there is useful information on page 70 to help find the sequence, the 70 year old Dutchman clue is just a point toward the navajo code which started about 70 years ago. And even then it makes no sense. The Dutchman would have been born when navajo code started. Just whack.
Anyone else wish to chime in? Maybe I am off-base on this.

9. The 70 years old clue could have been telling us not to bother with pg.70.

At this point I am not very interested in solving this chapter for myself, but I can't wait to see how it is solved.

I honestly have more fun reading this forum then I do picking through text, not enough patience for that.

I don't really have anything constructive to add at this point for the current chapter. I guess I would be concentrating on TSAH=needle, I'm sure it plays a part... "We need to start at the needle", but then again "Weaver's needle almost always seems to be the center point".

The Dutchman may have been 70 years old, but on the other hand...
The number 70 was irrelevant in my solution for the page. See what's more important? Also, The dutchman is john waltZ. One of the letters that went on a hunt of its own. I'm pretty sure I know where it is. That hunt requires a substitution.
