        Would an artificial intelligence be able to solve all the problems created by natural stupidity?

          Yes, there was a town. I believe it was just east of Eden.

                                How does someone (like banaisequoia) solve these consistently in 1/10th the time an average person does without knowing ahead of time what the answer is?

                                Some few people have a brain that can see patterns so clearly that , with practice, a challenge like cryptograms becomes second nature and can be done very quickly. It's a gift that is not available to us all but is certainly wonderful.

                                bansai is gifted and incredibly fast. He's not the only one though. nanrich, gryhnd, LilyH and Annamariah, and others, have averages under 40 seconds and 100% solve rates. The board is full of gifted people.
