DO NOT USE BRUTE FORCE TO SOLVE THESE RIDDLES!

All riddles in The Python Challenge DO NOT require brute force in order to solve them.

In other words, don't try to solve a riddle by writing a script that attempts each and every possible combination of letters or numbers. Most of the times it will not lead you the answer (since it is designed that way) and if it will, then you'll miss the fun of REALLY solving the riddle.

If you think to do such a thing, it implies that you haven't understood the puzzle yet, and you should ponder more about it.
