covert western union (Posted on 2006-02-07) Difficulty: 4 of 5
The following 2-phrase, 10-word message was encrypted by converting each word in the original text from base 36 to base 10 (treating each letter as a number).

Next, the resulting numbers were concatenated to form one very long number:


1) Identify where to place word breaks and decipher the message. (Easy)
2) Determine what each word in the message has in common. (Harder)
