    I was making a puzzle for an upcoming event and I'm finding that some people can see it and other can not. I'm hoping to find out what percentage can solve the puzzle. It works best if you print out the puzzle on paper so that you can play around with it.

    something sort of looks like
    O H T in the top row

    That's all I can "sort of" see besides diagonal lines.

    Are there supposed to be words? I've been trying and can't find them.

    I tried printing it out but it is too big and I only get half the puzzle on the page. Sorry, I really want to know what this puzzle is about. Can't see anything but lines

    I'll keep the group guessing until somebody posts the answer.

    The message is written backwards but still can't read much of it. Think the 1st word is "The" , I think I see the word "is" and last word ends in ous and has a period. Still working on it.

    Printing it out and holding it in front of a mirror would help.

    Here is the answer for those that would like to see it.

    Highlighted to show the answer.

    Perhaps 5 minutes.

    Funny story though. I'm at work right now. I took it out for a smoke break and one of the Engineers was there with me. I gave him his own copy to play with. Smoke break was quickly interrupted by pouring rain!!! When I came in I sat down and immediately it hit me that I needed it in the mirror (the clue was I knew the 2nd two letters of the top line were H and T - and no words end in H & T ... but backwards .... ).

    So I walked over to the ladies room which took me past the Engineers desk so I told him "we need a mirror". He followed me ... TO the ladies room!! I had to scoot him out and tell him "Go find your own mirror!!". He was just blindly following me!!

    I enjoyed your story immensely. Too funny! Thanks for your comments. They helped me in understanding the solving process.

    Even though I've read what the answer is I can't see anything. But the zig zags remind me of what I see when I'm having a migraine. I had to stop looking at it...lol.

    It surely is. It helps to be nearsighted and take off your glasses.

    It took me about a minute to get the top two lines, and then struggled for a few more minutes with the last line. I had to "hide" the top two lines with my hand to get it.

    I hope that wasn't cheating LOL
