Well its possible, Just read each line one at a time and compare size and structure of the character array in a incrementing construct composed of logical constraints.. something that low lvl is easy, take the language brainfuck for example

Just thought id post the link to an article I wrote "Security Related April Fools 2003 Roundup"

April 1st, the time for journalists to make up stories, website designers to redirect their sites, and everyone else to try and sort out fact from fiction.

From its traditional French roots in 1562, April the 1st has now truly evolved embracing the digital age in its stride.  This year was certainly an eventful one, but blink and you would have missed it.  April fools started appearing as early as the preceding morning from some publications, which had the desired effect of successfully confusing a number of people, especially those eagerly awaiting them the next day.

2600 duly followed tradition redirecting its site, this time to the address http://www.2600.gov@207.99.30.232/ no doubt trying to confuse the less internet savvy user of their 'gov' status.  The IP address sported a number of audio clips (embedded in flash animation files), along with the message “2600.COM is now the property of the United States Government - Your address has been logged” parodying the DEA’s recent redirect of several domain names to one of their own servers.

This is a more obvious version of last

year's joke when 2600 linked to cybercrime.

2600 received many reports that their

site was taken over by the government.

This version allows some nice features

though. Two Minutes Hate (shouldn't it

be "Two Minute Hate") is fun, but isn't

there more things we could hate. Broccoli,

prezels maybe that stupid dog that didn't

do anything. One of the links didn't

work for me, so now I'll never know how

to stop clown porn.

How could I've thought this was hoax?

I accuse myself of the following crimes.

I’ve seduced party members of both

sexes. I‘ve been to the proletarian

areas. I’ve deliberately contracted

syphilis in order to spread the disease

to my wife and other party members.

Together with other agents, I have

counterfeited bank notes. Wrecked

industrial machinery, polluted the water

supply, guided Eurasian rocket bombs to

targets on airstrip one by means of coded

radio signals. I stand here a victim of the

influence of Emmanuel Goldstein . Guilty

on all counts. I’m glad I was caught. I

was mentally deranged. Now I am cured.

I ask only for you to accept my love for

our leader. I ask only to be shot while my

mind is still clean.

Clown Porn is wrong.
