    Umm, you have used super difficult words throughout the website. Isn’t simplicity the key to genius? You could’ve used easy words. After all, the Council doesn’t approve of flowery language as much.

    Hmm…If i’m not wrong, in the story, the prisoner had asked the jailer to fire a shot if he had NOT found any mistakes (and not if he found a mistake), the jailer fired two shots as a sign that the lines were flawless.
