A great Lexophile right on the ball!
Now here is a very intriguing paragraph. There's something extremely queer about it. If you can solve the enigma in less than 5 minutes then you are on a par with Alan Turing.
Here it is:
"This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you would think nothing is wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though.Study it and think about it, but you may not find anything odd. But if you work on it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!"
The first one to solve the enigma gets a Noble (sic) Prize!
ok Vinnie, I am the quickest to reply of your dumb audience: there ain't an "e" in that paragraph - well done! Just goes to show that noticing absence is harder to do than noticing presence!VINDICATOR wrote:Hasn't anyone discovered yet what is so strange about that paragraph I posted here on April 13?

There are 34of them here in my text today. I don't think I could write anything without this letter!
BTW, Alan H, thanks for supplying the facility to delete one's own posts
Congratulations on breaking the code first. You get a Noble (sic) Prize!
Here is the next Enigma.
Your enemy has cought you and put you in a room with three doors to freedom. however, to escape you have to first go through one of 3 rooms on the other side of the doors.
One room is full of assasins with loaded guns.
Another room is full of raging fires.
The other room is full of tigers who haven't been fed for 3 years.

Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time,
which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very
little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered
from bad breath.
This made him a "Super calloused fragile mystic hexed by Halitosis"
