I read the reddit story a bit.
CHANCES ARE ZERO that a randomly picked, single person would have decoded this.
(Ok, not ZERO but incredible small).
Let's just wildly speculate that this is some three letter agency looking for new, bright agents, do you think they would pick some random dude off
the street, hand him a VERY elaborate code...and then rely on whether that person would solve the code? BS.
The code can (according to common sense and logic) only be solved if many people try to figure this out, eg. as has happened by that person posting
this on reddit and then going viral.
Without such a chance for BIG exposure there is hardly a chance that the code could've bee solved,
THEREFORE..the whole story is a hoax since it was intended beforehand to make the entire story public.
(Alternatively, the person looking for new people "to make more money"..would need to do that on a huge scale, eg. handing bills to tons of
people..to have a remote chance that one of them (WITHOUT any help, alone)..would figure out the code. Here also, chances are slim to randomly get
some nerd who is skilled enough to figure out the code)
