An eye is three circles. Black in White in Blue.
A group is three shortenings. Three then three then two. [xxx xxx xx]
A philosopher, a painter and a nine.
A Greek, a Dutch and a Roman.
"What I do not know I do not think I know", said Belshazzar at his feast. ~ x-1
When you find us, ask these questions.
~When is Nord right?
~When is right forded?
~When was Ford righted?
the eye, I haven't made any progress on
the grouping i think is described in the next two lines, a Greek Philosopher(3 letters, unknown), a Dutch Painter (3 letters, unknown), and a Roman nine ( two letters, IX)
Belshazzar is the king who say writing on the wall in the Book of Daniel, but the quote that syndic attributes to him is by socrates, a Greek Philosopher and the scene is depicted in a painting by Rembrandt, a Dutch Painter.
So how does one shorten Socrates and Rembrandt to three letter each? and what does "~x-1" mean?
any thoughts /x/
still not working. also a guy called jzeller, who other members told my was syndic's other screen name popped in said he "got his etizolam" and left.
it's a /soc/ chatroom, so i don;t know whether i should believe them that jzeller is syndic, but etizolam is chemical used in treatment of insomnia and panic attacks.
ok so like i said before, someone by the name of jzeller showed up in the room and mentioned a drug, i was told it was the same person who goes by syndic, then, just now someone with the sceen name "vexedii" showed up, which people claimed was syndic aswell, he was going on about his uncle owning "Zeller Tuxedos" in east brunswick, NJ. i private messaged him and got this in response:
me: are you really syndic, who gave the riddle?
vexedii: convince to think isnt king crazy think
me: when is Nord right?
me: when is right forded?
vexedii: when left right left right brick wall.
me: and when was ford righted?
thanks for chiming in with the wrong answer after someone else posted their stream of conscience while working the riddle. makes you look like a stupid fucking parasite.
you're being fucked with
I think you're on the right track, but getting close to an answer and the answer itself are not the same. The tinychat logo clue and the group clue seem connected. The philosopher and Greek clues are likely connected. The quote seems a riddle in and of itself and may likely connect the previous four clues in some context.
>When you find us
You may not have been getting fucked with but it's more likely than not. Considering the riddle itself is poorly understood you may have been in the wrong location.
i guess i did only put half of it in my first post, here look at this line:
>"What I do not know I do not think I know", said Belshazzar at his feast. ~ x-1
the quote it socrates, the painting of belzhazzar is rembrandt and x-1 = ix
so when you say:
>The quote seems a riddle in and of itself and may likely connect the previous four clues in some context.
you're right thats how i got the answer i got:
(soc)rates (Rem)brandt (Ix)
did i make a mistake somewhere?
Doesn't seem so, but the question now is how it makes sense contextually with the group clue, tiny chat, etc. The answer may not be Socrates and Rembrandt by name, but something related. Using the first three letters of their name seems assumptive.
But if you're right, maybe the room is soc, rem, and ix run together.
>The answer may not be Socrates and Rembrandt by name, but something related. Using the first three letters of their name seems assumptive.
fair enough but what else? the works they did? the quote is from apology and the painting is titled "Belshazzar's Feast"
the painting, fyi
Anything come to mind that is specifically 3 letters, and relevant to both Socrates and Belshazzar/Rembrandt? Nothing rings a bell for me.
I would think the riddle would contain a hidden way to divulge such an answer but it's more likely the mind's knack for patterns is necessary.
yeah that knack is strong enough you almost sound like syndic covertly giving clues, so just to be safe i have to ask, When is Nord right?
"Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin" in the Book of Daniel Belshazzar sees a mans hand right this on the wall, as to it's meaning, it be quicker for you to google it tham for me to summarize here
Would that I knew.
Unfortunately I can't see a direct correlation between the content of the painting and a grouping of 3, although the connection to Rembrandt as a the clue's indication was inspired.
As such I would seek out something relevant to Socrates and Rembrandt meanwhile maintain vigil in soc, rem, ix in case contact is made.
well socrates has no last name, so i doubt that's it.
birth year dont really work, (though socates' is 3 digits)
and as i typed this message i found rembrandt painted a work called " syndics of draper guild" attached, one of the men in the painting is Frans Hendricksz Bel, Belshazzar means "Bel, protect the king." maybe Bel is one of the 3 letter groupings?
more research, the book opens with reflection on socrates last words ""Crito, we owe a cock to Asclepius. Do pay it. Don't forget." which is sometimes considered a riddle, i'll keep reading some while i search elsewhere
Then this riddle probably wasn't too well constructed past the initial clue.
>me: are you really syndic, who gave the riddle?
>vexedii: convince to think isnt king crazy think
>me: when is Nord right?
>me: when is right forded?
>vexedii: when left right left right brick wall.
>me: and when was ford righted?
Not really cryptic, just silly. Unless that's what he was going for. I've had children give me answers on par with this thinking they were telling a joke/riddle.
Didn't say there wasn't, but it was terribly conceived. Fnord is only an acceptable answer to a riddle if you are RAW or his ilk. It reeks of putting too much effort in being cryptic without actually taking to the time to craft a decent clue.
Left right left right brick wall is shit I did to friends when I was 8. I'm left wanting.
really? nobody could figure out "eye" riddle?
That's not the fucking answer you moron. It said a circle within a circle within a circle then even said the color.
What you made was the shape that you see behind an eyelid and that's a fucked up eye. Large circle is white, the "sphere" or the eye. Middle circle is blue, the iris. Inside that circle is black, the pupil. How fucking stupid are you?
hurr durr de durr durr HURRR derp drap
the middle clue seems the most in decipherable to me, with the one braket but not the other, it it is a url, then that seems like the one that'd give us more than dots. is co.py the url extension for anywhere?
