I thought my answer to this Truman Show question was pretty nice. It also gave me an excuse to go through the entire film frame-by-frame.

This question/answer set proved amusing. Ryan Veeder performed some very nice statistical analysis and cryptography to come up with an answer, then found his answer proven by simply replacing the Gobbledygook font> with the appropriate letters 🙂

What language is Raven using for her attack in the new 52?
