May 25, 2005

i did not get the "H" either. this is kinda like something out of a book (A series of unfortunate events; forgot which book out of the series) (i think the third) NE WAY, this was pretty good

Jun 26, 2005

I loved it! There is a similar one in the movie Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortuante Events. But since most ppl, I'm assuming, are adults on this website, you wouldn't have seen the movie. lol unless you have kids or something.........
spookboy0Aus*
Jun 26, 2005

Yes! That's where I got the inspiration for this teaser.

The "H" was hiding. It was a tricky brain teaser!

Great! Thought I had it at first, but made it harder on myself and tried something different. Should have gone with my first instinct on this one.......

Sacré Vue?
emmh**
Sep 27, 2005

Hey, I'm an adult with no kids and I love Lemony Snickets. And Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. And so many others. Kids films (and books) are MADE by adults after all, so they're a perfectly valid form of adult entertainment. Frankly, I think they're generally better and cleverer than so-called adult films. But I'm getting off the point. VERY CLEVER TEASER. It's nice to have one occasionally that I can solve. Well done.
geniesue**
Sep 27, 2005

I loved it, finally one I figured out right away
waternymph*
Sep 27, 2005

I got it pretty much straight away. easy but very enjoyable. I loved Lemony Snickett, and I'm 31 with no kids. :lol
EVOLNI**
Sep 27, 2005

OK see msot peolpe olny look at the frist and lsat leettrs of wrods if you are raednig it fsat eougnh you will not catch tihs unitl you re-raed this entrie exmpale.

i got this in a chain e-mail once. The reason you missed the H and it was hard for most people is because ur brain only looks at the first and last letter of a word. so in this example above u should be able to read it but see the errors in it as u look back

That was just GREAT!

hey, that was fun! I can't believe I finally got one. Loved your info EVOLNI - very kool.
AZTTT**
Sep 27, 2005

Lots a fun! However I was unsure if you wanted the number 31 (date) or 13 (unluciky, number in a coven, etc.) Thanks!!
GMoney*
Sep 27, 2005

Yes, and no, Evolni. Your brain wouldn't mistake the words "patle" (plate) and "pnohe" (phone) in context because it does, in fact, recognize the middle letters -- it just doesn't need them to quickly interpret the meaning of the word given the context of the sentence. I contend that those who missed the H in "frigtened" just can't spell, or are at least slightly below average at pattern recognition. These are the same people who spell the contraction for "you are" as "your." (See examples above...)
bookworm05*
Sep 27, 2005

Great teaser! Like others, I thought the number would be 13, but it was still fun!
Aarghonautsus*
Sep 27, 2005

got it Huzzah! But, like someone above, I guessed 13 as the number Good teaser

Sep 27, 2005

This is my 1st time voting and commenting. I thought it was pretty easy but I thought of 2#'s, 13 & 31, 13 being for bad luck. Fun Teaser.
neomajic**
Sep 27, 2005

That was really cool! I got it after re-reading it

I think I saw something similar to this is an chain-email with the subject -"typoglycemic"
nathaliaAjm*
Sep 27, 2005

Very good teaser. I missed the "h" & "a"
renny*
Sep 27, 2005

Good Teaser, fun and easy! GMoney is right, you have to know HOW to spell to get the answer right!! A lot of people don't...

I am in the group that thought of unlucky 13 as the number.

This was a cute and refreshing type of teaser. Good job!

When was the last time you were "frigtened"? Didn't that word just jump off the page at you as WRONG?
foreverfree*us*
Sep 27, 2005

hey i loved it! great teaser! i didn't get every single letter but i figured it out. i didn't know if it was suposed to be 13 or 31, but i guess it doesnt really matter theyre pretty similar... it was really easy but still fun and needed some involvment so i liked it a lot. and i actuually got it!!! congratulate me! i like never get them!

Sep 28, 2006

Easy teaser, but fun. For those of you debating whether you read every letter in a word EVOLINI & GMoney) try this (taken from a text book on risk management):

"Wve'e hraed taht it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mess and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by itslef but the wrod as a wlohe."

I thought this riddle was ok... But the number I guessed was 7. I've never heard of 31 being a good luck... Oh well, anyway, it was ok.

kman613**
Sep 28, 2006

Good one. Took a few minutes to find all the letters, but thats the fun of it. I also thought 13 at first(unlucky # associated w/ Halloween), but had a good guess it was either 13 or 31.
Pizzazz2uAus*
Sep 28, 2006

Very Clever! But, I did catch ALL of your tricks, .... this time! Keep attempting to get yet another twist added. I enjoyed it! WTG

Good teaser, but subject might limited to the good old USA. They don't T&T in Tianjing. But still a lot of to work out.

Good teaser, but subject might limited to the good old USA. They don't T&T in Tianjing. But still a lot of fun to work out. Sorry.
Synlapse*
Sep 28, 2006

One thing I have noticed on this site, the comments are often stranger than the teaser. In China they must say "Tlick ol Tleat".
FatHeadAus*
Sep 28, 2006

At first I thought you genuinely made mistakes, but there IS a method to your madness! Good work. Y'know, this reminds me of The Wide Window, #3 of Lemony Snicket's books.
scallioAus*
Sep 28, 2006

Fun teaser, especially since we're coming up on Halloween!

I had no problem finding the letters, but I, like many others, thought of the number 13 for the actual number.

locutus13dsus*
Sep 28, 2006

HAHAHA.. I got this one.. The 13 or 31 number fixation is interesting, as they are the same numbers, on ly switched! Happy Halloween!
Trishgal*us*
Sep 28, 2006

I guess I know how to spell---I caught the errors easily enough ,but guess I know nothing about numbers and their meanings ---thought this was 6 0r666
sequoia-mom**
Sep 28, 2006

I caught on quickly and about half way through realized what was being spelled. Naturally, 31 came to mind, Halloween being on the 31st. This one was fun and a great way to start the morning!
vlermaAus*
Sep 28, 2006

Nice job Spookboy - right close to the T or T season. Easy, but fun.
zaya*
Sep 28, 2006

Fun concept, but needs to be more challenging. Maybe make the letters you find a word jumble, use some harder words to find misspellings in, something like that.

wow, i liked this teaser a lot, mostly because i actually got it on my first try. i didnt miss the h or the a in the beginning, and thought this teaset was pretty easy, surprisingly. thanks so much for submitting it, it made me feel all warm and fuzzy to get one right for once.. after getting 'halloween,' however, i also thought of two numbers-13 and 31. both are valid answers, dont you think? anywayz, thanks again for a great teaser and keep 'em comin!

I thought it was too easy... but I got it wrong. I got the digits right, but they were in the wrong order. I thought the number associated with Halloween was 13!
