Puzzle Solution

The puzzle contained 3 elements:

  • 1. The phrase "You will need to be a fast listener, but here is a tiny clue."
  • 2. Morse code ".-.. .. - - .-.. . / .-. . -.. / .-. .. -.. .. -. --. / .... --- --- -.." which translates to LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD.
  • 3. A black and white image that appeared to be an "inverted image".

The morse code was first solved by Renegade on Web Series Today and Track Jack on FaceBook but the puzzle did not proceed on those threads. The Second Life team that worked on the puzzle included: ahcapella Caldwell, Jupiter Vale, eeka Batz, Nathaniel Pevensey, Methos Shamen, Dewey Wheelwrigh, Solar Quicksand, geefive Resident, Christ Popinjay and Rance Alva.

After solving the morse code, the team found an image on Wikipedia [1]

The team noticed that the image in the puzzle was inverted from the image on Wikipedia. Synonyms for inverted are negative and reversed, so the team reversed the letters in LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD to come up with doohgnidirderelttil. Noticing that the puzzle says "but here is a tiny clue." they tried the tinyurl: http://www.tinyurl.com/doohgnidirderelttil which led to the video "Timewave zero: The Rise Of Nibiru: Zoey 2012" by modelmotion. The video is part of a series of videos for Zoey's birthday called "The Legend Of Zoey[2]. The team noticed that the URL for the video [[3]] contained "&t=17s" at the end which caused the video to begin at 17 seconds.

Looking at the video at 17 seconds the team deduced that there must be something buried in the video at that point. Listening to the audio, and looking at the puzzle message "You will need to be a fast listener," they concluded that it was probably an audio message that needed to be speeded up. In addition, given that other elements of the puzzle involved reversals, they concluded that the audio might need to be reversed.

When the audio was reversed and speeded up approximately 5x, the message "____ eat me Hillary Clinton" was heard. The word at the beginning of the sentence was hard to distinguish but a quick Google search let to the expression "Don't eat me Hillary Clinton".

Taking this result and inserting it into a tinyurl let to http://www.tinyurl.com/donteatmehillaryclinton which in turn led to the following URL: http://noagendaartgenerator.com/content/submitted_artwork/episode-481/martinjj/dont-eat-me-hillary-clinton with an image of Hillary Clinton and a child saying "Don't eat me Hillary Clinton".

The expression "Don't eat me Hillary Clinton" originates from the "No Agenda" podcast show [4] created by Adam Curry and John C. Dvorak. The audio clip of a young girl saying the expression is used as a reward to promote their "value for value" fund raising model.
