    Yes, very good. Back when the site focused more on brain health & enhancement, had this article tucked away that I was going to write about: “Reading Shakespeare has dramatic effect on human brain“. Kind of interesting…

    Did you you all solve this puzzle?
    Was it by trial and error, ie: start at the last three letters and filter your way up, then see which set of filtered letters can make sense?

    Pretty much Jack. Got a sentence that made sense then chucked it in Google!
