"With no other clues, it was also assumed by many to be a recruitment drive by the CIA, Britain’s MI6 or the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), as part of a search for highly talented cryptologists. It wouldn’t have been the first time such tactics had been used. ... Dr. Jim Gillogly, former president of the American Cryptogram Association, has been cracking similar codes for years and says it’s a tried and tested recruitment tactic."

And then you disappear. But they pay well and keep you supplied with non-stop Mountain Dews. You're not sure about the pay part though, 'cause you're not allowed to go anywhere where you can spend it.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
