Play the keyboard all the way, then hit the sound button and listen to glass break. That will reveal the PDF icon on the bottom.

By avoid sharp objects they mean to type in all the keys on the keyboard that arent "sharp".

Trying to decode using the PDF, rather hard, will keep trying.

I don't know if anyone else noticed, but according to the first post, they've been working on this one since January.

The letters and hieroglyphics on the wheel don't match up. Frustrating.

Maybe I hate everything. Or maybe I just hate you.

Do the symbols on each side of the wheel correspond to the letter directly across from it on the other side of the wheel?

There's a dot in the middle.  So I'm guessing we have to draw a straight line.  But ya. They don't match up.  Hmmm..

Another thought: the Cleopatra Knows Best post... those are obviously real hieroglyphics. I'll go on Google and see if I can find something. Maybe we can, or need to decode, the first message first.

Problem with heiroglyphics is that many different people draw the symbols differently and others translate them differently.
