    I had to use intuition and Google in lieu of UK cultural knowledge but it was still fun. There are a couple things on the paper whose significance eludes me but I got a checkmark so I guess that’s okay.

    A little difficult for a non-native speaker, but with a little help from google it was very fun to decode, I stayed up later than I should have to finish this 😉
