Our hints and tips are structured in the following order:
1. Vague hint
2. More obvious hint
3. Give-away hint
1. The answer is there.
2. Look! It's in the page.
3. Words in bold mean something.
1. It sounds like one letter, but is spelt with three - Consider all letters of the alphabet.
2. What can be blue, black or grey?
3. It's part of the anatomy.
1. Red herring refers to misleading 'clues' that lead to nowhere
2. Look everywhere. Don't limit yourself to just the web page.
3. Look at the extreme ends of the page.
1. Why is 'anything' shorter than 'string'?
2. The answer has nothing to do with "quack".
3. Think about rhyming.
1. Look at the title of the page.
2. What word sounds like it's one letter, but is actually spelt with five?
3. Read out the dialogue, and listen to that sound you keep making. If you get it, the last line will make sense.
1. Hints can be hidden anywhere. Make sure things that have the same color as the background show up.
2. The answer is two letters - What are the two letters you get out of "Empty"?
3. Read out the word. Do you hear yourself saying the answer?
1. Save the picture and zoom right in
2. Don't keep staring at one spot. Move around. If you're zoomed in enough, the answer jumps right out at you.
3. The answer has nothing to do with fish. But look closely at them, and you'll see the answer staring at you.
1. Sharp jaws don't necessarily have teeth.
2. What doesn't need claws to cut?
3. I have one of those in my pencil case.
1. Don't just look at 'it'. Try to find out more about 'it'.
2. Did you realise that the last line isn't text? It's a graphic.
3. Everything has its *properties*.
1. There are five hints available for you. Have you found them all?
2. You need to look at the source of things.
3. "View -> Page Source" in Firefox, or "View -> Source" in Internet Explorer.
1. Look at the fish in a different way. The same way you used to last time.
2. You're dealing with binary here. Your windows calculator (in scientific mode!) will help you.
3. Make sure you are in "BIN" mode throughout!
1. Remember, text color and background color need not be different.
2. Look in the same old place where they've been hiding things all along.
3. Look in the source.
1. You have to look for what you're supposed to find out.
2. See the Google logo? Go on.
3. The answer is NOT Everest. Go look it up.
1. Not a day of the week, but closely related.
2. If you need to, retype the hint without the spaces. The spaces will distract you.
3. Unscrambling refers to rearrangement.
1. What a searching question!
2. Make sure you're copying the WHOLE quote.
3. The question is WHO.
1. See the description? Aren't there some things that we describe in a similar manner at school?
2. Use Google. Nobody is stopping you. (The starfish is a red herring)
3. Bolded letters mean something. Put them together, and see what you get.
This post is brought to you by:
1. The letters in a foreign language tell you something
2. Read the title of the page very quickly
3. The name of the country starts with "T", and the answer starts with "B"
1. Not using firefox? Skip straight to hint 3. Otherwise, look around the page.
2. Something on the page, which remains the same for past questions, has changed in this question.
3. Identify this flag: http://images.encarta.msn.com/xrefmedia/sharemed/targets/illus/flg/T049066A.jpg
1. See how each line relates to the previous line
2. See how each line describes the previous line
3. "There is 'x' number of 'y's on the previous line"
1. If you can get an answer but it doesn't seem right, remember that your answer should be in LOWERCASE =D
2. Doesn't the guy in the picture look ancient? How do these ancient people count?
3. I get the feeling that the ancient guy is Roman.

(Think of roman numerals)
If FOUR is half of FIVE
and two thirds of SIX is NINE.
What is THIRTY-TWO?
1. "2=O" should mean there are two of them.
2. What does G and Y have anything to do with searching?
3. They are just names. The answer is the name of Y.
1. What is it that you cannot see?
2. Add up what you cannot see.
3. What you cannot see = Total - What you can see.
1. Don't forget what you've been doing so far.
2. There are three words in the final answer, written as one word.
3. The numbers refer to the question numbers that you've done so far.

Recall previous answers and take the first letter of each answers.
Replace all the numbers by a letter, so as to form 3 words. Then put the 3 words tgt to form the answer.
1. Just one letter from each.
2. If you see more than one letter, pick the first one.
3. Getting a series of garbled rubbish? I'm guessing you don't take Physics. Go look it up on Google.
1. There isn't much english or mathematical formula behind this - It's merely mechanical.
2. Seriously, watch where your fingers are going.
3. Look at your keyboard. Look at the letters.
1. Ignore the graphic
2. Google up every character. Which English letter do they look like?
3. If you're getting loads of funny stuff, it may simplify your life by ignoring the first character, and the last five.
1. Similarly to the previous one, only the first letter counts.
2. The letters form a sequence we used in primary school to remember some stuff...
3. This sequence has something to do with the stars...
1. Every picture represents a letter.
2. The letter is the name of whatever is in the picture. Put the letters together to get numbers, which represent one member in a series of 26 we use frequently.
3. More hints? The drink is called Tango. DiCaprio acted as Romeo before. Lopez acted as Echo. The album is called foxtrot. There are probably some you haven't seen before. Fill them in.
1. Homophones sound about the same.
2. The answer is the one in red.
3. In this case, both words are even spelt alike... They both start with "P".
1. The third line is very difficult. Figure out the rest, and fill that in.
2. In #4, a falling cloud refers to what falls from them. In #5, what do you call yourself?
3. In #1, being stung by a bee creates a painful swelling. In #2, just find out the second cubic number.
1. Go ahead. Add them up. Identify the shape, and find the brightest one.
2. Can't identify the shape? We usually draw it with five 'legs'.
3. The brightest one. No, not the one that shines on us - The second brightest one, then.
Need more help?
Do some research on the brightest star.
1. Directions can be misleading. If you hit the wall, be defiant to the instructions.
2. When you move, pick up EVERYTHING along the way.
3. Don't just put in whatever you get. Google it up, and put in the 'broad category' of that thing instead.
1. Follow the instructions first.
2. Use a real calculator.
3. You don't always have to look at your display from the same side.
