Question

Inspired by Woon but with my own recipe ;)

Sudden death of a famous mathematician has given a lot of headache to the investors that were hoping to benefit from Professor’s brilliant mind. His latest work was nowhere to be found. However his coworkers knew that the Professor spent most of his time in his office so they were convinced that the algorithm that he constructed was there... but where??

The Professor’s office was thoroughly searched but his work was nowhere to be found. They knew that the Professor enjoyed solving and constructing riddles but all off them were a dead end!

Since the Professor was a mathematician the only odd thing in his office was this poster and there was something odd written on it as well!

ANTIINSTITUTIONAL DISESTABLISHMENT

Where did the Professor hide his priceless work?

Did the Professor have any other secrets?

Nah...

You know that it does not. :)

When you find the answer it's not gonna be just a light bulb... it's gonna be fireworks!

Spoiler for ...:

Simplicity!
it's just a random snail that I've found. This one was the prettiest
;)

tell me if I'm going too far!

is the study of the snails his treasure? Is the information on that poster the hidden treasure?

does that have anything to do with it?

The Professor liked simplicity and things hidden in plane sight!

I'm not quite sure what do you mean??

I think I know two of the professors secrets..
he liked snails...a lot!
:lol:
Was he a teacher?
:huh:

It doesn't matter if he liked snails, but it had to be a snail on that poster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I don't know I have never read his resume?! :lol:

Was the treasure hidden in the poster?

Mmmmm... no!

tell me if I'm going too far!
is the study of the snails his treasure? Is the information on that poster the hidden treasure?

No...

the poster is the riddle, read my read spoiler!

That's what I thought when I guess his SON, AL, in NY. (Great minds think alike, eh?)

snails don't have a respiratory pore, its an excretatory pore.

is that significant?

Mmmm... no :)

:P

Only two of them.

yes i think I have it!

It is the poster itself!

because...poster has an 's' and an 'o', two of the letters from FK's list. and it is in plain sight, plus it is also very simple and inside the office!

My answer fits the criteria!

EDIT: oh... I didn't read your earlier spoiler. Dang it!

No... :)

okk... so since you have said that the riddle is in the poster, and that it must be of a snail which you just chose randomly from the net, then the riddle is: snail + antiinstitutional disestablishment.

YES! That is what this riddle is ALL about! :D

NO MATH!

snails carry their 'house' everywhere they go, i.e. their instituition/establishment. so could it be that the riddle is hidden in the shell part of the poster?

Mmmm...

the riddle is just about those two words and the fact that there is a snail on the poster. There's nothing hidden on the poster it self!

edit:

Spoiler for ...:

Now that I read it again I'm not quite sure what you've meant... but the snail's shell is involved! ;)

looks like the work of anagrams to me...
not available yet. <_<

No anagrams... something new!!! Outside the box!

does this have anything to do with..
tanks?

I won't ask ;) and no!

Tintinnabulations Distillates Histamines

since it's an anagram for "snail antiinstitutional disestablishment"

Simple!

No anagrams...

Does it have anything to do with:

A toad, salmon, or "a tissue in the light by it"?

I very much doubt it though :D

No...

hmm.
apex. X marks the spot. am i on to something?
:huh:

Yes... :)

Is it in the snail's shell?

I also noticed quite a bit of repetition among odd numbers, broken only by 'disestablishment'.

Is it hidden in a heptagon?

Explain the last word please! And I already said it's no problem to repeat it again that

it has something to with the shell!

Apex code language?

Mmmm... I never heard of that so no...

no code, no translating, no math, no anagrams, no complicating...

:) edit: tell me what that code is??

Is it...
on the inside roof. You know, like the part of the ceiling where the point of the roof sticks out?

No... :)
