According to Fenn, if you have figured out the first clue the rest becomes progressively easier. So what are the know-it-alls waiting for? I mean, if they have anything they have the FIRST clue, don't they? The rest is easier, so why in all their apparant brilliance do they not have the rest figured out by now and the chest in hand?

Quote:FENN: Yeah, I have some advice. Read the book. And then study the poem. Over and over. Read it over and over. Maybe even memorize it. And then go back and read the book again looking for hints that are in the book that are going to help you with the clues that are in the poem. That’s the best advice that I can give. You have to find out - you have to learn where the first clue is. They get progressively easier after you discover where the first clue is.

Well, well. Sounds like someone is getting more than a little crabby. Frustrated that you havent made any progress? Poor baby.

The first 2 clues kind of fell into my lap. Then it took 9 months to figure out the HoB. From there it WAS easy until I found the blaze on my 4th trip. Then the phrase, "look quickly down" happened. Wow. That is one intense phrase and "down" is NOT an adjective describing a direction, by the way - its a noun. There, I just saved all of you several months of work. So study that one, Ojodude, and see what you can come up with.

In case you havne't noticed, you are posting to a banned member. A fair fight.... lol.

Yes, your response have saved us all from months of work. Lol again.

Come on now, this seems a bit off in response in many ways, since ff has said you won't know until you find it if you have the previous clues right (and no, I won't go find the exact quote, you are already months ahead)..... lol yet again.... the first two clues fell in your lap..... ok, go with that. Not saying I agree with ojo, but this just seems too far off from reality to not make a comment, since the person you are speaking with is not able to respond.

RE: This should be easy!
So, if Ojo cant respond, why did (s)he post such a rude and snarky thread? (S)he wanted to know what's taking so long. I answered. The bottom line is the poem is MUCH more complex than any of us can understand at the start of the chase. I explained in a previous post how those clues "fell into my lap" and I dont feel like repeating myself. Bottom line: dont pick a fight. Period.

brubr, it looks like your brain is a pretty capable tool. If used properly,
it may help you find real treasures and avoid fights.

Grub - if ojo cant reposed, it is because he factually cant respond due to "banned" status. Yes ,you answered, but s/he can't due the status of banned. If you are being serious about why he cant respond, i will answer he asked when he was an active member and not possible to respond due to the change of a change in that , a moderator or admin banned him - if it is a short term or permemanet ban, I do not know. But that is the reason, s/he is not ignoring you. Just not possible due to the functionality of the forum of banned versus active members. I hope that is not too complex to understand. It si not possible, not ignoring you.

Your next thought about how simple and not complex is the poem and it all fell in your lap... hmm, if you can't understand how banning works on a public forum, but you have figured out what 250,000 searcher have not, i simply can't help you.

I would go with AJ, and have your brain try to work other things in the chase.
