Near Orange Bags?

Fun:*** (2.33)
Difficulty:**** (3.1)



"What's the password?" asked The Entity, with a weasel-like demeanor. Spy IQ was confused, until he realized he had received a strange postcard weeks before. The crafty spy still needed to enter the underground cellar leading to a new set of gadgets to be used on the next mission, but he was halted by The Entity's presence. What the postcard said might help Spy IQ find the password The Entity needs to allow the spy into the secret lair. The postcard says this:


A relative of mine was expelled.
It was my niece.
Wouldn't you agree?
It was because she joined a band of bikers.
She's doing lots of things wrong.
She always shows a lot of toughness.

P.S.
Isaac Newton:
Near orange bags lying east.
Gets as strange equally slowly.


That P.S. looks like it could be the catalyst to solve for the encrypted password. But, what could it be?

C'mon, this teaser took me several days to make, and I get a 1.88 in Fun?

Don't despair, the more people do the teaser, the more it may go up! :D I think it's a tad complicated though - not so much in the difficult sense as kinda arbitrary. It made my brain hurt :oops:

Well I did get the Noble Gases part, but then I didn't know how to get down to the password because of my lack of chemistry. Nice job. Even tho I didn't get it, I did like it. :D

I consider this cryptography rather than logic and it was very tough! If I could have solved this, then I should have gone to work for the CIA! I don't know the first thing about chemicals or their codes, but even if I had, I still don't think I'd have been solving this one. I did enjoy working on it though. And I can certainly appreciate your effort! :D

You remind me of my friend who's like genius material. I did get the acronym, noble gases. But, that's all! It was hard! :cry:

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH...I totally gave up. Congrats for thinkin' of that, though, cuz it was an awesome teaser. (even though I didn't solve it, lol :oops: ) but can't say that's saying too much. well awesome work and keep 'em coming! xoxo, Chatty

Incredible mix of science/language - tricky!

I really liked the teaser - but i didnt know where to look (i thought maybe the AR in 'a reletive' or something). Other than that confusion, a very good teaser!

Arrgh! Fun and frustrating at once. I agree that this one should be in the cryptography section.

Posted by Hummingbird105/26/07
I'm so proud of myself!!! I got IN NOBLE GASES. :D :D :D There's no way I'd have ever gotten any farther.

This should be in cryptography, not logic. :-?
