And tell me who the song is by:


2-11-4-22-11-2

Dudley Dotson April 23 2006 9:37 PM EDT

Wow..is this pheonetically or is it in the numbers?

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] April 23 2006 11:59 PM EDT

nobody can figure this out?

[T]Vestax April 24 2006 12:34 AM EDT

What gives you the idea that this is simple? There isn't much to decode, which means there isn't much material to help you rule out possibilities.

char April 24 2006 12:37 AM EDT

no prize?

InebriatedArsonist April 24 2006 12:37 AM EDT

This could translate into Wingdings for all I've been able to figure out.

Dudley Dotson April 24 2006 6:07 AM EDT

gosh maybe you plug it into 5x9-09238490823+5938x9182 and then you divide the numbers so you get a letter :P

Tomoyoshi April 24 2006 6:19 AM EDT

cool, Yahoo does math :-)

Dudley Dotson April 24 2006 6:41 AM EDT

best I got was "war caw" if you correspond the numbers with the letters on the keyboard starting from q and going right

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] April 24 2006 6:52 AM EDT

Dudley you are on the right track. Except I don't know where you got that c from unless you have a different kind of keyboard.

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] April 24 2006 6:53 AM EDT

And Vestax I never said it was simple, just surprised nobody figured out, usually people on here are good at this stuff. So calm down.

Dudley Dotson April 24 2006 7:07 AM EDT

regular keyboard...c is number 22.
Hope you don't post a hint while I'm at school

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] April 24 2006 7:11 AM EDT

Here's the hint, S is number 22.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] April 24 2006 7:12 AM EDT


Warsaw, Joy Division?

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] April 24 2006 7:12 AM EDT

It's a very weird coincidence that your method came out with almost the same answer, but you were definitely on the right track with the decoder.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] April 24 2006 7:13 AM EDT


Or Rancid. Or Darkness Remains. Or Swing Kids.

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] April 24 2006 7:13 AM EDT

Bast got it.

Dudley, you had to think vertical instead of horizontal.

2 is W because W is one down from 2. Hence, one 2.

22 is S because S is two down from 2. Hence, two 2's.

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] April 24 2006 7:13 AM EDT

I'm glad you said Joy Division, because that is who I was implying. The true makers of the song.

Dudley Dotson April 24 2006 3:03 PM EDT

WHAT???NO!!!

Aww man I spend hours on this :(

Dudley Dotson April 24 2006 3:04 PM EDT

awww man...just went I left for school. Thanks for the hint :)

Dudley Dotson April 24 2006 3:06 PM EDT

Well, at least there was no prize :)

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] April 24 2006 6:24 PM EDT
