Question

Look at this in a different way

The answer's hard but don't dismay

Solve perhaps riddles I tell exact

By then adding the abstract in subtract

Look at this line by line. The first two lines make a clue, and the next two lines make a clue.

If you've got the first three lines, don't think too hard about the last line. I have a feeling that line might throw some ppl off

I've no idea if this will be hard or not... hope it's fun!

Nope

Btw, I probably should have said "last" or "end" rather than "abstract," but "abstract" just sounded nice. Both make sense, but "abstract" I realize was a bit of a stretch...

Don't think too hard on that line

Nope, and nope

Math has nothing to do with the riddle. You don't use math to arrive at the answer, nor does the answer involve math. I deliberately tried to throw people off with the last line, but I might have thrown you guys too much.

Not to say that you should ignore anything in the last line, though.

Look at this in a different way - THIS is the word to manipulate

The answer's hard but don't dismay - Hits? hard-hitting

Solve perhaps riddles I tell exact - telling us exactly how to solve the riddle

By then adding the abstract in subtract - by manipulating the given word

HITS

Spoiler for hint 1:

Look at this line by line. The first two lines make a clue, and the next two lines make a clue.

the first two lines tell how to figure the word to manipulate

the second two lines tell us how to manipulate the given word

If you've got the first three lines, don't think too hard about the last line. I have a feeling that line might throw some ppl off

...I think I just lost my train of thought... crud..

I've no idea if this will be hard or not... hope it's fun!

forgot quote does not equal spoiler....::headdesk::

...

Yep, you got all the meaning you can get from the first two lines.

First two lines: hits hard!

Now you just gotta find out what the next two point to. The third line has something somebody should be able to spot... and then you'll have to work from there.

See whats meant.(CEMENT)

Line 3 makes it CONCRETE?

That's pretty cool, but not it =P

'station'.....?

exact - station (position) ??

put 'tion' at the end of subtract - subtraction........????

If it's not hard or tough, is it difficult?

No answers so far, however, Wilson got the significance of Line 3!

Now the hardest part is figuring out what on earth I meant in Line 4, and combining it with Line 3

deannaart is on the right track

crazy guess...

Caffeine free. Caffeine hits hard, like the first two. Then you have sprite, and you extrat something that hits hard...caffeine free soda.

Way off, I know. Just trying to think.
