    The encryption method is extremely simple and the first letter is already in plaintext (the character number that is). The plaintext is plain english. [79, 32, 79, 39, 45, 39, 112, 21, 50, 64, 37, 5, 107, 4, 36, 87, 35, 81, 48, 94, 57, 92, 46, 93, 125, 9, 102, 70, 42, 69, 51, 86, 92, 5, 106, 31, 63, 84, 58, 85, 34, 2, 118, 30, 123, 91, 41, 92, 48,

    It has something to do with the sunglasses MCM. The sunglasses fall under 57, 18, 24. How can you not see it? :)

    LOL.....I typed 57 18 24 into my search bar and a bunch of sunglasses with polar vision popped up.

    That's weird! I got lists of numbers that made me dizzy

    I'm sorry i have a headache looking at all of Romos' numbers.  :)

    ....6 ?

    57, 18, 24, 12


    5+7=12, 1+8=9,  2+4=6, 1+2=3


    12, 9, 6, 3   a clever pattern of decreasing value.

    This is a great effort and. at this moment in time, easily the best answer.
    Though feasible, it is not the right answer and it is a single digit and the significance thereof, in connection to the numbers, that is being asked for.

    Another one of those mind-benders, that when you see the solution, you just want to kick yourself!
    Bob/PKB

    Hmmm.

    Sorry mate,i only got 10 fingers and 10 toes,,anything after that aint worth knowing..>>>>>>>><<<<<<..

    And what do we win 150 points toward ? 

    west-bus

    The 150 points will give your ego a big boost.
