 No.1

Use this:

https://futureboy.us/stegano/decinput.html

All you have to do is get the password simple enough right?

Clue:

I never was, yet always will be. I am never seen, yet always come. I can carry nothing, yet hold much for some.

Good luck, you'll need it for this one.

 No.2

Anyone know the riddle answer?


 No.3

>>2

You copied your friends work in school didn't you?


 No.4

the answer to the riddle is "tomorrow" but that's not the password


 No.5

>>4

Ok ok


 No.6

>>4

It might be future


 No.7

>>6

Never mind


 No.8

>>4

could be something related to tomorrow or future have you tried tomorrow date?


 No.9

tried all combos for tomorrows dates, also trying the 14th and 12th, nothing so far


 No.10

also tuesday and wednesday


 No.11

>>10

>>9

Fuck, must be something more obscure.


 No.12

i cant find out what it is i tried old time English, l337 speaking it, making it the date…


 No.13

>>12

Damn


 No.14

also tried tomoorw in binary, hex, ascaii etc


 No.15

>>14

I tried vertex in binary etc. Too.


 No.16

>>14

I dont think its that simple I think its related to tomorrow or future


 No.17

>>16

Did you try "time"?


 No.18

>>17

Yeah


 No.19

 No.20

Anyone got it yet?


 No.21

 No.26

>>22

The image from this post


 No.27

>>25

Did it work?


 No.28

is there something hidden inside the OP image?

>I_am_encoded.jpg


 No.29

well the picture is encoded with a phrase, but you need a password to decode it, which no one has found


 No.30

>>29

This


 No.31

>>28

The password has got something to do with "future" or "tomorrow", which is the answer to this riddle.

>never was, yet always will be. I am never seen, yet always come. I can carry nothing, yet hold much for some.


 No.32

the fact the riddle is in first person as well as the filename makes me think that they are referring to the same thing.


 No.33

>>32

hmm interesting


 No.34

>>32

any ideas?


 No.35

>>34

idk i guess we could try the filename


 No.36


 No.37

>>35

To obvious I think.


 No.38

>>31

Maybe future events?


 No.39

God damn


 No.40

maybe were just stupid and whoever solves it cant post the solution, kinda like cicada. if no one solves it soon i think were being fucked with


 No.41

The password may not even depend on the riddle at all, he did say we would need good luck


 No.42

>>40

I agree 100%


 No.43

>>41

so what do we have so far:

>future

>tomorrow

>time

>first person

>luck


 No.44

>>43

Time travel?


 No.45

>>43

I'm thinking it is a person or physical thing, someone try time machine


 No.46

>>43

another thing to note is he never actually asks "what am I" or states that the answer to the riddle is the password. I think the riddle is a red herring and we're too focused on specifics.


 No.47

I was thinking it might be political or something but doubt it now


 No.48

>>46

Idk man


 No.49

The image looks like it was taken a while ago or was to look that way maybe that is a clue in itself?


 No.50

>>49

age, past, present going to try these


 No.51

>>43

>>45

>>50

Maybe put these together?

Might be someone from the past


 No.52

>>51

this looks like it could be on the right track.

>>47

so old presidents maybe going to try Abraham Lincoln etc.


 No.53

>>46

I dont think it is because there's isn't a whole lot else that could be the password


 No.54

>>52

But where does the future or tomorrow come into play here?


 No.55

>>54

people from the past that influenced the future?


 No.56

>>55 (checked)

Think we're close, if not we are definitely being fucked with.


 No.57

>>56

>people from the past that have influenced the future

>famous people maybe?

>first person riddle

>luck

>never asked "what am I?"


 No.58

>>57

>luck

Maybe someone that influenced the future by accident?


 No.59

>>58

God?

Jesus?


 No.60

>>59

Could actually be Hitler.


 No.61

 No.63

Maybe the phone number isn't a phone number? But some type of code? That'd explain the random website.

Also, Nostradamus was French. Thought that was relevant.

 No.109

ok, ive looked alot into this 123 site… the phonenumber does indeed seem to be a default number, and the default location seems to be hill street louisiana, so the france location was intentional….i dont think we should focus on the telephone for leads…

perhaps the magpie, france and 1001713 are connected


 No.110

this mofo has to be vertex

probably unrelated:

Follow The Magpie (Regional Korea) - Poem by Ronald Chapman

Far to the East,

My heart travels with desire,

Where memories of flying with a magpie send me dreaming,

Flying high above hazy cliffs of Kosŏng-dong,

I see, Oh wow!

What is this ship sitting on top of a mountain?

A cruise ship was shining like a blue and white sea shell in the sunshine,

The magpie yells come follow me and see other amazing things,

Beautiful Hangang shows me the way back home,

My heart beats with desire,

As the magpie beckons me to follow my dreams,

And come back home.

First one was a Morse code message and an anon decrypted it then it took us here from /b/.

yea, nothing on the poem leads to anything, including the author… ive tried anagrams of the phrase follow the magpie, which can have "poem" and "image" in them but nothing… still thinking


 No.127

I think magpies are known for snatching shiny objects, dunno if this helps


 No.128

"Follow the magpie" might be a reference to the matrix I was thinking.

 No.134

you tube


 No.135

>>134

The BO must have made a word filter for you tube without the space to change the it to magpie so must have something to do with you tube


 No.136

>>135

Magpie


 No.137

>>136

He's right, so its probably a video or channel were looming for


 No.138

If magpie = you tube nospace then the tweets that say "the magpie ad" are really saying "the Magpie ad"


 No.139

**the you tube ad


 No.140

>>139

Hmm could be.


 No.141

>>132

what do you mean here is the magpie video of the scene


 No.142

>>141

the board has a word filter that changes “You tube” (no space) to Magpie


 No.143

The hell you say.. I'll have to do some more digging after work


 No.144

Word filter test

Microsoft

Apple

 No.145

so its looking like we either have to find a username/channel on you tube or the end of https://www.Magpie.com/watch?v=_____ to find a video


 No.146

>>132

You made me thought about a phrase in one of animatrix mini-movies. The one where a girl run after her cat and arrive in a glitches building where gravity is a bit… Drunk xd

In this short movie, there is a question always redundant, "where are you?"

À faint voice answers "beyond the rainbow".

It made me think to the scene with the mirror when neo is disconnected for the first time.

So I mirrored the website name 1001713 to 3171001. Seems like a phone number.

Thanks to the guy who searched the op picture on tineye, I did the same with the background picture of the site, and noticed there was differents resolutions for it. The one used by vertex is tagged 800.

So…. 1-800-317-1001.

Check this: https://www.whitepages.com/phone/1-800-317-1001

I can't call myself but it might worth a try I guess :/

nope, its a number but it says welcome to new york life, our office is closed

I give up


 No.151

>>149

its both, the 800 and the 2000 are the image size, the actual jpg name is whats after


 No.152

well this board died fast

I think it did


 No.154

Well, anyone any closer to solving this one?


 No.155

nope, its dead

we can assume our next clue would be a you tube video considering you tube autofilters to Magpie, but theres nothing solid point the way


 No.157

https://www.Magpie.com/user/followthemagpie

no videos though, pretty specific name to chose


 No.158

>>156

That's what I was thinking and also we should note that on the original post on /b/ there was a reply that said:

480H

which is 20 days so maybe this means something or maybe it is just the dealine


 No.159

>>155

I'm sure there are people who have solved the one we are on.


 No.160


 No.161

>>158

Can you link the /b/ thread please ?


 No.162

Maybe /vertex/ is related. Only one weird post in it


 No.163

>>162

Made a little over a day after this board, I'd say it's worth looking into. Reverse image searching the image isn't giving me anything, although I'd say it's cropped.

Maybe we should look into /Magpie/, except, y'know, not /magpie/. /you tube/
