# It is Big Brain Time!

For all cheeky tricks that can be done on Brilliant, it must look either confusing, or weird...

Important thing to mention, all text in the line of code must be copied for it to work, don't only copy the code boxes

$$\textbf{For example}$$

Copying the next line completely:

[\(\color{black}\text{Hi!}\)](https://brilliant.org/daily-problems/)

Would give the proper result:

$\color{#333333}\text{Hi!}$

Copying only the code box would just give this:

(https://brilliant.org/daily-problems/)

So properly copy the code displayed :)



Now have fun learning what weird things we can do in Brilliant :)

Every week, I will update this note and add all the interesting stuff this note's comments will have, and their commenter's name will be featured in this note as well

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

@Frisk Dreemurr what if we use this abyss to make something productive? is it possible to use it to highlight a big text?

- 7 months, 2 weeks ago

@Frisk Dreemurr you can post the variable highlighting block thing but put a warning after saying "caution misuse or spam with it may get you in trouble with staff"

- 7 months, 2 weeks ago

@NSCS 747, I posted it

- 7 months, 2 weeks ago

@Percy Jackson, @NSCS 747, I posted the abyss. So I am announcing that as well

- 7 months, 1 week ago

What's with method 1? It is wrong. Why did you put \text{-} there and color it? Only \[10000000px] is enough.

- 7 months, 1 week ago

- 7 months, 2 weeks ago

Okay. You know I can partially read white, right? And fully read yellow?

Unlike other people?!

- 7 months, 2 weeks ago

I can read english though... :)

$$\colorbox{white}{\color{white}\tiny\text{LOL!}}$$

- 7 months, 2 weeks ago

So? I mean, reading yellow is no big deal, just requires a little strain when the background is a light color like white.

Reading white on a white background is not possible, so I think you're talking 'bout the white text in the button area, in which case :

$\colorbox{#eeeeee}{\color{#ffffff}\text{Anybody can read white text on a grey-ish background with little strain too :)}}$ (though this isn't exactly the color, its quite similiar and equally easy to read, if not easier)

So, I think you're quite mistaken about the 'Unlike other people?!' part...

- 7 months, 1 week ago

I said partially!

- 7 months, 1 week ago

Sure, whatever helps you float your boat...

Hey, its not my fault I seem to think that Yajat's replies are not important and hence overlook them :P

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

But still, I give you credit...

@Frisk Dreemurr can you remove method 1 that is the sacred one you can leave method 2 though but keep method 1 between u me and percy also for method 2 give percy and yourself credit as well

- 7 months, 1 week ago

Okay, k, alright, done, finished, edited

LOL

Now that I look at this again, remind me why there is credit to Nathan in the abyss? The only thing he did was get us into trouble for using it too much. The abyss was found by Marton and the colored (and slightly less efficient) version by you. Also Marton discovered the unformatted Latex, not me or you, we just experimented on it so the full credit should go to him. I don't understand why the abyss is here at all though, isn't it useless? Its not like you can prank someone without getting staff's attention. I don't see why its there at all. Just a few things I wanted to suggest @Frisk Dreemurr :)

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Alright, thnx for the copyright claim, I shall give credit...

lol

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

lol k great

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

I added everything, plus headings for all the tricks as well :)

Okay, but what's 'Confusing ImPage Edits'? Someone's forgotten English...

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Image page edits? Seriously...?

Pun didn't work out lol

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

I thought it was in page edits...you're puns suck more than straws dreemurr...

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Yup, I have to agree, my puns aren't the best. It is usually Sans who makes the good puns lol

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Sans can't beat me in a pun contest tho. He can't even challenge me, coz he doesn't have the nerve to do it lol

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

I could have swore that you wanted to say that he didn't have the balls to do it...

lmfao don't kill me lol

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Well, not really, but it works, coz he doesn't have nerves or balls, does he? Its a pun Dreemurr, he's a skeleton you bonehead...

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Didn't remove abyss as it it might be quite useful, and maybe a little irritating in the wrong hands :)

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Useful for what? Nothing we can't mention Brilliant Math for...so I don't see the use...

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Maybe a lock to prevent access from typing, like a comment lock, for notes we don't want to contaminate any further

- 5 months, 3 weeks ago

ahahaha, very funny dreemurr...

Well isn't that the most cheerful teenager I've ever seen. I'd almost think that she was peaceful if I didn't know she was a ruthless, merciless, genocidal murderer...though I have also killed monsters, so I guess the only difference between us killing machines is that I kill bad guys, and she kills everything in her path...lol

- 7 months, 1 week ago

what abut cybermen

- 7 months, 1 week ago

What? I meant mass murderers by killing machines. Me and Chara kill everything in our way. I only kill bad guys though. She kills everything...

- 7 months, 1 week ago

im thinking of changing my name to Cyber Warrior for roleplaying purposes and join you guys

- 7 months, 1 week ago

Ok...

- 7 months, 1 week ago

oh, you meant from Doctor Who. I haven't finished watching, so no spoilers...

- 7 months, 1 week ago

u watch it? where r u up to

- 7 months, 1 week ago

Correction : I haven't started watching. lol I wanna watch, but I don't have enough time...I just searched up the net for cybermen lol

- 7 months, 1 week ago

you can slowly watch it episode by episode the average length of a episode is 40 minutes

- 7 months, 1 week ago

40 mins is to much dude. Transformers Prime on Amazon Prime Video is just 20 mins per episode. Super easy to binge watch on Saturdays. I have that to finish, then there's these Marvel series' called 'Cloak & Dagger' and 'The Runaways' which are awesome(according to my friends) so I have to start those too. Too much to do in too little time :)

- 7 months, 1 week ago

just watch one episode a week or something you can do it

- 7 months, 1 week ago

Cybermen now occupy every landmass on this planet. But you need not fear. Cybermen will remove fear. Cybermen will remove sex and class and color and creed. You will become identical. You will become like us. We are human.2

- 7 months, 1 week ago

Noooo!!! If you remove sex, then how will we feel the pleasure of...reproduction...between males and females...lmao

- 7 months, 1 week ago

we will not require the human method of reproduction we shall mass convert the whole world and then convert the dead adding to our ranks and then conquering the universe and putting it under the rule of the cybermen

- 7 months, 1 week ago

Not very pleasurable...

- 7 months, 1 week ago

you will not feel pleasure we will remove all emotions and creed. from now on your objective will be to become us and serve us as part of the new race of human.2

I guess you know alternate timelines? I am in control of that :)

So that means I can be whatever I want to be when I want to; just switch to a preferred timeline, and I am done

So I can switch between being genocidal, or pacifying

- 7 months, 1 week ago

or just become the doctor

- 7 months, 1 week ago

Ok...
