I've heard this one many times, so I'll be surprised if you haven't heard it before.

This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it? It looks so plain you would think nothing was wrong with it! In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is unusual though. Study it, and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out! Try to do so without any coaching!

Uh... It's quoted?

The paragraph is not indented!

Post subject: 

It's been a couple hours, so here's a hint: It has nothing to do with content and everything to do with style.

Author:  RegalChillin [ Mon Jul 17, 2006 12:32 pm ]
Post subject: 

Once again, I've heard this one...or seen it rather.
Although, it does scare me that you say it has nothing to do with the content..

Here is my answer anyway:

Throughout the entire paragraph, not once is there an "e"

Author:  Swift [ Mon Jul 17, 2006 2:50 pm ]
Post subject: 

Regal maintains his lead. There was no 'e' in that entire paragraph.

There is a dead man in the middle of a field, nothing is around him and there are no footprints of any sort. There is an unopened package next to him. How did he die? Answered by Krisp

Author:  Birdknight [ Mon Jul 17, 2006 3:10 pm ]
Post subject: 

He died because when he opened the box, and there was nothing there he had a heart attack

Author:  comicmanx [ Mon Jul 17, 2006 3:54 pm ]
Post subject: 

There was a bomb in the box?

He didnt actually open the package.

Author:  RedYoshi64 [ Mon Jul 17, 2006 4:01 pm ]
Post subject: 

There was a powerful electric current in the box, and when he touched it he got zapped.

Author:  Swift [ Mon Jul 17, 2006 4:04 pm ]
Post subject: 

comicmanx: Don't double post. Since they were the exact same answer, I won't hold you to the fact that guessing twice is against the rules.

Now, for your hint: As he approached the field, the man knew he would die.
