This apparently is an anagram, whoever came up with this must have a brain the size of a basketball.


From Hamlet by Shakespeare:

To be or not to be: that is the question, whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. =

In one of the Bard's best-thought-of tragedies, our insistent hero, Hamlet, queries on two fronts about how life turns rotten

Hi noddy,

I had thought of an anagram site but none of the ones I've seen can handle anything like that amount of letters, the phrase has 74 letters, the anagram sites I know of can only handle 26 letters, besides, if there is one that can process 74 letters can you imagine how many combinations there would be?

Believe me, I admire the accomplishment.

Anagrams are a talent. I solve acrostics, but I could never create them.

Cool site, Noddy..

Unbeknowest to me, it seems that all along my full real name has been calculated to mean "harlots in the end-valve", "devil's throne, then lava" and even "the devil at shorn navel"!!!!!!!

If that's not spine-chilling I don't know what ever will be. Smile

Kev, some people are famous for just having a knack for anagrams (though often they'll use software like the site noddy linked to for help). Granted, the one you posted is amazingly exceptional.

Here's another cool one..

"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." =

Anagram: "A thin man ran; makes a large stride, left planet, pins flag on moon! On to Mars!"
