    $\begingroup$ "Let me start off with two long clues" So one clue is the quoted text and one the unquoted? Also, with some characters with capitals and others not (i.e. nExt to tHe valley), it most likely has a meaning. In that regard I hope there aren't a lot of typos/grammar errors in the text. :) By which I mean, are there reasons for: (part 1) The word scan not starting with a capital S at the start of a sentence; (part 2) The word In starting with a capital I after a comma and the not starting with a capital T at the start of a sentence; (part 3) i like not being with a capital I; etc. $\endgroup$ – Kevin Cruijssen May 9 '16 at 10:43
