In Cryptography teasers, a phrase or expressions has been encoded in some way (frequently by replacing letters with other letters). You need to figure out the encoding method and then decode the message to find the answer.

Can you decode the following phrases? They are NOT regular substitution cryptograms, but they all follow the same rules.

1) Ni lkna rfnim ajnebse xat dn ahta ed tp ecxenia, treceb otdia seb nacgn. ~ Ihtondlr Owsihtni

2) Nilkn arf nima j nebdae, de ram eh tfoo wtf iter. ~ Cesapeek Yameerht

3) No tg nihsaw eg roege no dabana htes u cxe onr. ~ Effoot Rettebsiti



Answer

Read each quote backwards, keeping the same amount of letters in each word!

1) In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes. ~ Benjamin Franklin

2) Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead. ~ Benjamin Franklin

3) It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one. ~ George Washington

Cryptography is so not my forte, but that was, for me, a nice work-out. Apologies to those for whom cryptography is "easy"

I must be stoopid when it comes to cryptography -- I didn't get it even after I saw the answers.

I'm with you craniac ... I still don't understand it. I had to give it a "no vote."

I tried one more time and finally got it. When I read it backwards the first time, I read the "quote" only, without including the author. Once I started all the way from the end, it worked out.

Technically, I don't think this is a "cryptogram" in the true sense because the letters aren't coded.
