### Geocache Description:

Beware eukaryotic organisms! They have been seen close to the cache location. These macroscopic lifeforms are neither plant nor animal, and predate both...

A Puzzle-type Letterbox/Hybrid cache (please don't remove the ink pad or stamp; they're not swaps) - The cache is NOT at the given co-ords, but is within 2 miles of them. You have to crack a puzzle or code to locate it.

Method 1: Use six of the ten different AANDs (Aluminium Alpha-Numeric Discs. There are around 4,000 in circulation) and go to:
N51° 49.[If K=1, C=?][If J=0, B=?][If H=8, F=?]'
W000° 35. [If G=9, C=?][If F=4, E=?][If E=5, J=?]'.

Method 2: Solve this cache's twin (GC7R0WB), and add 0.349 to the Northings and add 0.751 to the Westings to get the co-ords for this cache. Easy! This also works vice-versa, of course...

Method 3: Take the final digit of the year these alien creations made their public debut to calculate the final co-ords of this cache, using the following formula. There are larger versions in this cache's Gallery if you need a better look. Good luck!

The final is hidden at N51 4A.B W000 3C.D where:

A=P+Z
B=(ExH)+((LxTx(U+W))+G)xJ)
C=F-N
D= Vx(K+(OxSx((X+Y)+((R-I)/2)))+(M-Q)

Checksums: E+F+G+H+I=36, J+K+L+M+N+O=26, P+Q+R+S+T+U=32, V+W+X+Y+Z=27.

E (The 'species', not this specific individual.)

F (Voice only.)

G (This film version, not the comics it's based on.)

H

I

J

K

L (First appearance.)

M

N (In literature, not this 1976 film adaptation.)

O (Not the previously unbroadcast pilot episodes)

P (NOT the 1996 film inspired by 'items'.)

Q

R

S

T (Original appearance, not this later incarnation.)

U

V

W (Serialised.)

X (In a comic strip, not this 1980 film adaptation.)

Y

Z (In the 44th episode.)

Please DO NOT remove the stamp or ink pad. Neither is a swap - They make this cache a LetterBox/Hybrid. Thank you!
