Hmm. Two Encrypted Questions required using base 26. And the Hint is "Think bases." If I convert the numbers into base 26 using this cool online base converter, I get:

I tried converting the new numbers using 1=A 2=B ... P=Y 0=Z and neither sentence made sense.
So then I tried 0=A 1=B ... P=Z and that didn't work either.
Even though I've made little progress, my gut tells me the two questions are in fact identical once decoded. But I have no evidence to back it up other than that the length of the "words" are the same.
