    $\begingroup$ No, you did not succeed. People have tried this on me so many times that I recognize that code anywhere $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Alconja This is not a difficult puzzle, but I believe it is still a puzzle - you have to link some parts of it to get to the solution and there are clues on how to do it. It just has another meaning additionally. $\endgroup$

You tried to

Rickroll me


You did not succeed :P


What did I try to do to you?

You obvious tried to make me feel horrible for being so bad at these kinds of puzzles and make me cry in shame.

Did I succeed?

Yes... yes you did...


Unless.... v=dQw4w9WgXcQ looks like a url ending. Also I can see that there is the word you and tube in the puzzle And by the question and the bonus I get the creepy feeling you are trying to rickroll us... so I will not proceed further with this puzzle so that I can say NO to your bonus question! HA!

  • $\begingroup$ Am I correct to say this was the earliest correct answer? I see the "EDIT" stuff, but I don't see the "revision history" which suggests it is the first one indeed (or I don't understand PSE mechanisms yet). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @oleslaw I don't know for sure. There was still no other answers when I started my edit for sure. But after my edit the answers started pouring in real fast. If someone claim they finished their answer before I finish my edit, they can get the chosen answer. $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 17, 2016 at 10:00
  • $\begingroup$ I would be curious to know why my edit history is not displaying too.... Maybe when the edit is within 1 minute of the post it doesn't count as an edit or something like that? $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 17, 2016 at 10:04
  • $\begingroup$ Unless anyone can proove me wrong, I accept this answer as the quickest one. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It was the quickest answer, but the correct answer was first postet by Levieux, his answer was already here when i finished typing mine, so i feel like he shoud get marked as correct. The edit was made after both Levieux and me posted the correct answer. $\endgroup$

I knew it, but I had to see anyway

enter image description here

So due to my curiosity you

Did indeed succeed in rickrolling me



Tried to Rick Roll me.

That's because:

If you take all the even lines and you add ?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ to a you tube address, you get: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ, wich well, you can check out for yourself to know if it succeeded.

    $\begingroup$ You wrote "first and third" where I think you meant "second and fourth". Note that "sixth" is also significant (see italicized word in puzzle). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @mathmandan yeah, thanks for letting me know. I don't get what "even " has to do with youtube though, do you mind explaining? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Timme The lines you added are actually 2nd, 4th and 6th line which are the even ones. $\endgroup$
