The eighteenth video, microwave

This part involves inspecting the tags. When this video was release, it was as simpe as viewing them under the video. Now, you have to do a little something extra. Here's the hint: even though you can't see it anymore, the information is still there. How do you view something that is in the page, but is not in the visible section of the page?

View page source. (highlight to view)

the tags are  "thisisnottom, in, between, subscribe for updates, and, microwaves, you, find?" (highlight to view)

After inspection,you will see several keywords. These words point to a Youtube channel that is popular for having videos of microwaves. It actually required you to view the background image of the channel.


But since this was four years ago (2009), they have obviously changed their background image and moved on from TINT. If you want me to email you the solution, just comment below with your email address. Make sure to shadow it. For example: name[a t ] yahoo.com instead of name@yahoo.com


June 2016 update: I've actually forgotten that I ran this website. After seeing all the comments, I'm going to find the solution to this (I mean, re find it) and then update it here. Be patient guys!

The seventeenth video, lady, arabic

I printed the screen, and used that image of the lady in a reverse image search engine called "tineye"

search for "tineye" here

It turns out to be an Iranian singer, Mahasti. You can go about reading her wikipedia page when in fact only one thing is important, her Date of Death. She died on the 25th of June 2007.

in 2007, the Brotherhood 2.0, where John and Hank posted videos daily, was active. There's video uploaded on that same exact date.

Here it is:

In the TINT video, LOOK AT THE TAGS, and find what you think it is in the vlogbrothers video.

the answer is www.thisisnottom.com/thesubtleknife (highlight to expose)

"you're 80 and 'cross' over 25"

the image's name is i80
you should get a wiki page

find what corresponds to 25

the "which means urine" actually means "which means YOU'RE IN?"

so where is that 25 in?

the answer is cheyennewyoming (highlight to expose)

the alphabets in the picture are in reverse order
but that doesn't matter

the letters below are coded with a cipher called the 'Caesar cipher' which is a substitution of a letter which shift the entire set of aphabet downwards-upwards. google it to know more.


copy the text and use ^ to decipher
scroll through each of the option because the neat part is,unlike normal ciphers where one key can decipher all, in this, one key deciphers one word while leaving the rest scrambled, so jot down the deciphered words

the deciphered text is " name of the actor that played cypher in the matrix" (highlight to expose)

but if you still cant -_____- drop a call for help in the chatbox

the fourth one , dear zed poem

You'll find these in the page source;

no spaces, all lower-case, no puntuation, as usual
you'll find in this world, most things are capitalized for a reason
i said, "behave nick."

Think acronyms.
i said, "behave nick" has the acronym ISBN. What does that remind you of? Books. About capitalizations, usually after ISBN there are numbers, so obviously you would now require numbers, with the help of the poem.
Note the capitalized words. The first two letters of capitalized words represent numbers. Si= Six, Ei= Eight
You will find that the code is "ISBN 0061238600"
Google the code.

You need to know who the book was dedicated for. If you read books , you'd know that they usually write
"for blablabla" somewhere on the first few pages of the book. So, go search the book. Don't have the book? http://www.harpercollins.com allows you to read the first few pages books. GO now.
