    Substitution cipher 1

    This puzzle is a substitution cipher in which one letter stands for amother.
    If you think that Q stands for C, It will stand for C troughout the puzzle.

    Clue: J stands for P

    I think it translates into this, (though it doesn't quite read right)

    the united states congress like a lot rich people lives in two houses

    the united states congress like a lot o rich people lives in two houses

    Anoop forgot the f & braet, you missed the o, so it should read like this;

    The United States congress, like a lot of rich people, lives in two houses.

    Just to be nit picky, lives shouldn't have an s.:no:

    Well done braet. :up:

    Ok heres one for you:

    Ftqdqe m xmpk itae egdq mxx ftmf sxuffqde ue saxp

    M = A also If you can find the magic number then you should have no problem translating the rest

    There's a lady who's sure, all that glitters is gold.
    For some reason, i had the word glitter in my head from the start.

    Sorry i don't have one to offer at this time. Will be back.

    Told ya i'd be back.

    Was trying to find something witty & wise to quote but this is all i got.
    I don't think it's hard as there are lots of similar & repeated words so no clues, unless you really need one (& beg).:p

    THERE ARE THREE KINDS OF MEN: THE ONES THAT LEARN BY READING. THE FEW WHO LEARN BY OBSERVATION. THE REST OF THEM HAVE TO PEE ON THE ELECTRIC FENCE

    I got more than halfway through before I realised the decoded alphabet was still in alphabetical order :p

    PS. I hope no one's expecting me to be bothered creating my own coded message, somebody else can do the next one.

    Took me about 17 minutes to make…as far as your hint, I don't suppose I need to say any more...

    We ride at midnight and you should bring your own pancakes for after

    I don't really know how the hint helped, I still have no idea what it means :p Once again I didn't realise the alphabet had not been shuffled (just moved) until after I had already solved it. It's much more fun doing it that way. If I ever end up submitting my own code for you all to solve, it won't be in alphabetical order.
