Try wishing for lots of things.

You don't get exactly what you wished for.

Try wishing for a "nurse". What do you get instead?

secret

We give you what you wished for, but with a secret word added to your wish. For example, searching for "nurse" gives you a "nurse shark".

secret

The secret word that gets added depends on what you wish for.

secret

If you search something and get back an unrelated picture of question mark(s), it confirms what you searched for is special.

secret

The first and last letters of your wish are important.

Once you find enough secret words, they need to be split into two categories. If you haven't already, it might help to figure out when your wishes are not found.

extract, bisect

There are four secret words in each category. In one category, the secret words are added before your wish. In the other, the secret words are added after you wish. Look at the first and last letters of your wish to figure out which category you end up in.

extract

Wishing for "money" gives you "cup money", but we really wanted something other than "money". Using the two categories of secret words, figure out what two things you really wanted.

extract

The "before" secret words can all come before something (instead of what you wished for). The "after" secret words can all come after something else. Combine these two things to find out what you really wanted (the answer to the puzzle).
