Well, I don't know how the clue is a clue then. Am I supposed to get blazed out of mind and then it will magically come to me?

It's really easy. If you have Word open the clue and look carefully for smth strange. There is something suspicious about it.

I saw the hyperlinks, and when you disable them, a word is underlined in red because it's not in Word's dictionary, but they didn't seem to be the password. There something different about the last line, but it's not the password either. So I don't know.
When I notice what I'm supposed to notice, will it be obvious beyond a doubt that it's the password?

PS The starred out word was whitespace. That's the other thing I noticed: there's a lot of white space after each word. But I don't see any connection to the password.

I'm stuck in the same place, does the "something strange" thing only show up in Word or will OpenOffice work?

Just look at it as a text document. Any program which can open a word file will do.

Alright. Got it. Thanks MSGM.

Also, someone earlier posted that it isn't a "normal English word". I read that as being it's an English word, but not one that's used often. In fact the password is not a word at all or anything remotely resembling a word.

If I remember this one correctly, the clue is in your face.
