I have two directors, but no actors.

I have three numbers, but no equations.

I have two letters, but no packages.

I have nine dots, but no vectors.

I have fifteen lines, but no content.

I have two links, but no zeldas.

I have two arrows, but no bow.

I have one quote, but no source.

I have one picture, but no artist.

I have one more thing yet to be described.

What is it? What description has overlapped?

And more importantly, what am I?

Hint:

It appears that the first clue was the trickiest. The director mentioned is an actual movie director, but this clue is kind of......for the birds.

  • $\begingroup$ Very nice! You are definitely on the right track. You miscounted one element, which will help explain the last line. The first line refers to a certain director - I can name him in a hint if you don't figure it out in a while. Preformatted Text is the object referenced. Also, no, it wasn't supposed to be unsolvable lol. $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Mar 12 at 19:56
  • $\begingroup$ The directors and the arrows might be referring to the same things. Arrows give directions, after all. $\endgroup$ – Darrel Hoffman Mar 12 at 20:40

    $\begingroup$ @North thanks. Kind of funny knowing that everyone who started to attempt this puzzle was looking at the answer the whole time. :) $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Mar 13 at 21:40
