It seems to me that NOBODY has mentioned WHAT?!?

Deeep needs to come back. His Chase Chat suicide was pretty stupid, but he's the only one on the blogs that consistently came up with plausible new ideas.

He could certainly give us something to dig into, huh.

I was thinking maybe it's just me, Steph, so I went and checked one more time and I STILL can't find any instance of FF saying two people can keep a secret if one of them is dead.

For one, the premise is flawed. What if the one that is dead was actually the one that could keep the secret?

For two, what if it isn't people? What if it's wood? "...if one of them is Deadwood. " Or houses?

He wrote that and said it. I think it's in TToTC, but regardless, it's misquoted and came from Ben Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanac. The original saying is, "Three people can keep a secret if two of them are dead." What I'm pretty sure it means is just that if two people know, it's not much of a secret. Abe Lincoln also said, "It's not me who can't keep a secret. It's the people I tell that can't." If you think about Lincoln's quote, you can probably figure out what Franklin and Fenn meant too.

Check the Lorene Mills interview on oldsantafetrading site. I always remember him saying it on there. Not sure if it's in tftw too.

page 133, TTOTC.

That's an odd sentence. The only person that can share "his" knowledge is himself.

Not so odd really.
If you can figure out who that 'nobody' is, it puts a whole different spin on things.
Only the shadow knows.

nobody = shadow.

There's always more than one way to 'read Fenn'.

Well Roll, I have heard people talk about The Shadow, and I am familiar with the old radio series, but I never looked in to it. One thing I can say is that it isn't odd either way, Shadow or not. Sharing knowledge just means more than one person knows. Like "we share the knowledge of fishing", or "we both know about fishing", same thing.

The first paragraph tells you who the shadow is.

A shadow or a ghost?

Yesterday upon the stair
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away
When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door
Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away
