Default Couldn't finish this one :(

Hello -

The following is what I think it should have been, but even after trying ALL of the "letters remaining" for the one letter left over, nothing worked! So I just gave up and never found out what it should have said!

If you know, please post!

"Safety _eans first aid to the uninsured." - Unattributed

The _ is for the missing letter.

No, "m" did not work

I believe the "letters remaining" were: b c g h j k l m p q v w x y z

Also, all of the letters in the quote are repeated at least once except the missing letter and the "h" in the, and the "o" in to.

Thanks!

I don't know if this one has been mentioned yet, but I've never seen such stats.

lurker, is it perhaps a newer one? that might explain the stats; 'people' is an easy word to spot, so i can't imagine...
