    I think LP expects us all to be much....MUCH smarter than we really are, lol. That or we've just rendered ourselves useless the last several hours/days nitpicking all the pointless crap before we got the "numbers tell all" hint. I'm completely f$&@ing lost at this point..lol

    I'm not buying the notion that this cryptic thing will be any easier even if we have all the pieces. If we can't find any patterns after 9 of them, we aren't going to find any after 16. In other words, if we can't solve it now, we'll never solve it unless if we get another legitimate hint.

    I don't think there are any parts of the song that are going to be unlocked. :lol:

    Especially not by the 16th if this is the pace we are destined.

    I only thought that cause the time on the BID page says 20:30PST, which is 11:30EST. Whatever, all of this is fucked up.

    OK, so take each series of 5 and 4 numbers:


    53282 3265
    41602 1589
    00000 0000
    61752 1732
    53168 3156
    44682 4658
    39376 9365
    00000 0000
    00000 0000

    Now, separate the first digit of each of the five digit numbers:


    5 3282 3265
    4 1602 1589
    0 0000 0000
    6 1752 1732
    5 3168 3156
    4 4682 4658
    3 9376 9365
    0 0000 0000
    0 0000 0000

    Now, in each row, subtract the second number from the first number, not counting those first digits.


    5 3282-3265=17
    4 1602-1589=13
    0 0000-0000=0
    6 1752-1732=20
    5 3168-3156=12
    4 4682-4658=24
    3 9376-9365=11
    0 0000-0000=0
    0 0000-0000=0

    Notice how each answer is between 0-26, meaning each can be assigned a letter, giving me this, assuming zeroes are spaces:QM_TLXK__

    But those first digits are still left over. I tried subtracting them from the answers, but it still didn't make sense.

    Also, considering there are two zeroes in a row, I thought maybe instead of putting the letters in the order we got them, we should put them in the image order, like this:

    1 2 3 4
    5 6 7 8
    9 10 11 12
    13 14 15 16
