    ...that's the name of the site where I put some riddles (you can reach Level 13 so far). I was inspired by that stapler site we had some weeks/months ago.

    Hope you enjoy. Feel free to comment/criticize etc.

    I won't give any hints! If you can't make it to Level 5, know, that you are below average, cause even my mom made it so far.

    It doesn't work...I don't see the riddle...it's just the instructions and then the answer line and a submit button. (using IE)

    Unless that's supposed to be the riddle, in which case I'd say ya, it's dumb.

    Uzless read the instructions and the answer will be more obvious to you. It is not a three second scan and answer, but you have to stare at the screen for about 5 minutes and then the answer will pop out like magic.

    Read the instructions again. Google is googly-good.

    i guess i'm an idiot. Don't get it. There is no riddle unless something in the instructions is disguised as instructions but is really the riddle.

    Or else my web browser isn't showing me the riddle and some text is missing.

    Or I just don't get it.

    I've done 0 and 1, but am presently at a loss on 2. Not convinced by #1, although #0 was a nice gentle start.

    Remember when the instructions said that a few minutes was required (it is actually more than 2 for most computer / people combinations). Again. Stare at the screen for about 5 minutes and then all will be clear. If it doesn't work after about 5 minutes, then reload the page and try again. But you have to stare very carefully.

    I have better things to do than stare at a computer screen for 5 minutes.

    I've stared at it for about 20 min and haven't seen it yet. I'm gonna stop before I go blind. I love these things, but I'm terrible at them. :'(

    Ok Ok, I got it (before I realized you weren't (solely) saying that to mock me)

    Part of my problem was I suspected there was a timer involved that made something appear after 2 (or 5??) minutes, so I did a good bit of staring without really thinking about it. To anyone still working on it, its nothing of the sort.
