It's Google improving the importance of cellar.org, causing people to select it which again reinforces Google's rankings... that's why I've left it in.

I had been wondering about that. Thanks for the explanation, although it would be interesting to learn how cellar.org became part of this. As I search around there were threads started on numerous message boards in an attempt to get people to join the game, but most of them dwindled and died out after a page or less of posts.

What happened was this, I think. Cellarites found it and worked the puzzle for a while. Then they got tired of it and dropped it. Five weeks after the thread died, somebody who was working on it came in and posted a post with everything s/he had come up with to that point.

The next day, the googlebots found it. And because the Cellar had a decent ranking before, suddenly people googling for TINP found the Cellar's post of solutions, and from that point other people googling came and started solving it together here.

Another random hint from someone who just registered, I know how much you guys like that here.

In "Dance Dance Dance", the Sheep Man's dialogue is all in one word, much like the password screens. i.e. "Thewomanleftalonethisafternoon, the Sheep Man said." I doubt this will help much, but you never know. And it's not like I'm the only person posting useless information.

Anyway, I've been following this thread for weeks since I find the puzzles and puzzlesolving interesting. I'm not good enough with riddles to contribute much, so I think I'll go aquaint myself with the other sections of this forum, as it seems like a good one from the lurking I've done.

Good luck.

Hello everybody. I just finally had the time to join this forum, but I've been checking out the "thisisnotporn" website for a few weeks now. I've also seen what others have posted, and I noticed one thing that was forgotten or overlooked. I'm taking you way back to the third page. The one with the words that are spoken and the picture of the truck.

First the words:
Alpha, Hotel, Sierra, Papa, November, Whiskey, Romeo, Sierra, Foxtrot, Romeo.
These words are apart of the NATO phonetic alphabet. It was first used during WWI for offical military use only. I noticed a pause between november and whiskey, but I still don't know what that means. I can't figure out why those words are there.

Second the van:
The adress on the van doesn't exsit. The zip code is for Colorado, but thats all that is true. The adress is fake and so is the company. Also I have been wondering what
words on the bus stand for; Teak, Cherry, Mahogany, Redwood, Leather. All of that stuff had to be put on that van on a photoshop program. It's all too random and it doens't make sense, and I feel that it should.

Third the flashing lines:
The lines that flash at the top of the picture about every minute twenty-so seconds, are not lines, but more numbers. It took me forever to get the numbers, but not that long to decode them. This is what I got what I decoded them.

1590521471 fourth word add s
0060254920 fifth word
0970042809 last word

0679731725 second word minus s
0894803204 fourth word
0736048146 first word

0785265392 first word
0970917902 eight word
1566912431 third word minus s

0974026565 first word
0345406141 third word

1931615039 Second word, First word minus S
0425120058 fourth word, fifth word
0687371376 fourth word, second word

0967518822 fourth word, first word
0151010196 first word
0471225347 first word, ninth word
0517886901 first word, second word

I had no clue what the numbers ment or what the words where. I thought maybe the numbers where phone numbers or zip-codes. Then I realized they are ISBN numbers. I looked them up and found that all of them belong to books that do exsit. The books are all very random from work out books to martha stuart cookbooks. The important thing is that the words in the book titles are what was important. Once I went through and wrote down everything this is what I got.

Hints Are Riddles
Remain Questions Bigger
Date The Await
Calm Remain
To Answer Will Come Your Time
that Weight Those Come to Good Things

It doesn't make much sense at first. But if you rearange the words it does.

Riddles are hints
Questions remain bigger
Await the date
Remain calm
Your time to answer will come
Good things come to those that weight.

I guess it's just a message for us about the game. It could mean nothing at all, but he put it there so it has to mean something. Everything has a meaning.

This is about all that I have at the moment. I am working on some other things now, and will probably be posting some more stuff within the week.

okay, just some more random bits of information that may help:

about the Hypericum Perforatum page: St. John Wort is also a Japanese movie (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0293478/)

The Japanese title is: Otogiriso.. and this is what its about:

Nami has been creating artwork for a new video game based on images she's been seeing in her dreams. With one of the game producers, she travels out to an abandoned house that seems to match her visions. As they explore the old mansion, Nami begins to have more visions of a forgotten childhood, until at last she comes across a photo of twin infants, labelled "Nami" and "Naomi". As Nami and the producer go from room to room, an unseen person seems to be watching them from a hidden room.

anyone happen to have seen that? .. seeing as he seems to like referencing Japanese books and movies...

about the redhead robot pages:

1] Piggy Piggy --> this could refer to a lot of things... the nursery rhyme, which makes sense cuz it's about ur 5 fingers, and theres a page called devil with 5 fingers, and there's 5 robot pages..
or maybe its about Lord of the Flies..(has a character named Piggy) .. I dunno

2] We've got ventriloquists --> might refer to the radiohead song 'Kid A' which goes like this:

I slipped away
I slipped on a little white lie

We've got heads on sticks
You've got ventriloquists
(times 2)

Staring at the shadows at the edge of my bed (times 4)

Rats and children'll follow me out of town.
Rats and children follow me out of their homes.

come on kids.


4] Who watches the Watchmen --> Quote from Juvenal, Satires 6..

The Roman author Juvenal (Decimus Junius Juvenalis, c. 60-140 AD) became famous for his Satires, in which he criticized the morals of his time. From a conservative, quasi-provincial point of view, he tried to ridicule the decadence of Rome's society under the reign of the Emperors in contrast to older and better standards -- painting, for example, the loose morals of married women in shrill colors.

In Juvenal, Satires, VI, 347 he writes: "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" which, as you will have guessed, means "who watches the watchmen? "

This was also the basis for a comic by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons (http://www.bry.fast.co.za/~stuartm/r...mix/watch.html)...

5] Fellow of infinite jest... --> refers to Hamlet and a character called Yorick (who is a jester in the king's court)


.. Robert Silvers is the guy who invented photomosaics.. (http://www.photomosaic.com/rt/about.htm) dont really know how that ties in.. but maybe just a hint towards the pages made up of multiple images that we had to use gifshuffle on...

btw.. has anyone tried gifshuffle on the "dont stray from the path" page?
.. I know someone did it for the devil with 5 fingers page.. but the treepage also seems to be made up of several different images.. maybe handy to try that.. but I cant seem to get gifshuffle to work for me..

okay.. thats it for now.. hope someone gets password soon.. been working on this forever...

There was a town in germany called frankenstein, and now its called Zabkowice Slaskie (Frankenstein now)...the u/n could still be prometheus, but I just thought I'd throw that in...if anyone wants to look up birds of the region (specifically birds of snow) that'd be cool.

Hello all, I'm new to The Cellar, but I've been following TINP for quite some time.. I thought I would try to throw out some insight and see if anyone can run with it.. TINP gave out this little hint on the TINP forum.

A vanishing elephant caresses with it's feet.
Took a penny.
Jobes wife was plagued by runners and a hose.
A speeding cop made us, with a laundry man on his toes.

Kris said that this clue gives the answer to "Frankenstein now, Yuki's bird."
I notice many lines in this little pseudo-poem relate VERY closely to a song by Little Jimmy Dickens called "May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose." Here are some lyrics that relate to the poem..
One fine day as I was a-walkin' down the street
Spied a beggar man with rags upon his feet
Took a penny from my pocket
In his tin cup I did drop it
I heard him say as I made my retreat

CHORUS
"May the bird of paradise fly up your nose"
"May an elephant caress you with his toes"
"May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose"
"May the bird of paradise fly up your nose"

The laundry man is really on his toes
Found a hundred-dollar bill among my clothes
When he called me I came a-runnin'
Gave him back his dime for phonin'
I heard him sayin' as I turned to go

CHORUS

I was way behind one day to catch the train
Taxi driver said "We'll make it just the same"
The speed cop made it with us
And as he wrote out the ticket
I stood by politely a-waitin' for my change

Kris thinks I may be the only person to notice that connection.. But I can't grasp a un/pw from it. I wanted to let you folks know so you guys could try to figure out what I couldn't. Hope this helps. See ya.
