Hold your horses Lars. It’s not his.
He got it from a Wikipedia page, about turning of a phrase in a humorous way. It's called something but I'm to lazy to search Wink
From the same list of examples I remember the first one : "If there's a will, I want to be in it. "

I just want a good omelet.
White Knight,

What were your nine key phrases? I'm trying to figure out what's going on here. I'm much more interested in the key phrases than the shorthand directions at this point.

Have you considered this possibility: the purpose of your cipher was to find those nine phrases/keywords rather than the shorthand directions? Is it possible the shorthand directions are there to confirm that you're finding the correct key phrases rather than the other way around?

If you haven't looked at this, check out Wild Goose's skip cipher which allowed him to create a letter block he found by using the concept of two circles. What he found is correct. I don't know if he (or anyone else) realizes what he discovered.

Thanks for sharing your ideas, White Knight. It's how progress gets made.

Doc

Its actually a very well known phrase in my trade, what next, don't say 'hello' because someone else used it before?
Briggs has it "all figured out....maybe". Again I say, he is correct in that you use Lewis - but not the cipher. Imo fenn was just trying to say, he's got an idea. Lewis is a big part, but it's the wrong lewis.
The answers I've given are correct and the use of the Lewis & Clark cipher is correct. Folk don't have to look for a small part of my solution to add to their own solution. The whole basis and method of my solution is correct. They just need to add a small bit to it leaving the bulk part as it stands.

White...hard to reconcile this with Fenn's latest comments....He says someone has solved the first four clues, maybe. Since we know there are 9 clues, even if you are THE one who solved 4, this is hardly most....actually only 44%.
Plus, we have a whole slew of searchers who sent solves to Fenn who believe they are the one...so who is the right one?

Stating "my solution is correct" doesn't make it correct. I certainly don't believe it is correct. To demonstrate that it is correct you either have to show the chest or you have to show the math demonstrating that what you think you found is sufficiently rare that it could not have been due to chance. You've done neither.

Forget the math if you ain't got the chest then you ain't figured out the poem simple
Put up or shut up we have heard this time and time again no math no bs just the chest no I think or maybe or stand on this line tap your heels there times turn around and doe see doe and hides hoe with your partner no chest go home
I love it Smile the I'm correct part! I think it's the wording that is the problem there. We all have faith in our ideas but to pound the ground with IM CORRECT you get a negative feedback from people, like when I read it my pants instancely fall to my ancles and a sharp pain goes into my back Smile just saying
Because Forrest said someone may have solved 4 clues doesn't mean they haven't solved the other 5. I believe Forrest likes to keep Searchers chasing by making progress sound gradual but attainable: 400ft from the chest, 200ft from the chest. 2 clues solved, 4 clues solved.

The solution I have identified produces a result (a set of directions) that is extremely unlikely to be produced by chance. Statistically, the solution has to be 'nail-on' correct.
