Cryptics are abbreviations from a known statement. For example 24 H in a D = 24 hours in a day. The Cryptics are known quotes, or quantities (that are in a statement. Ex: It can't be 4 L (4 liters), but 4 L in a G (4 liters in a gallon. )

Put up a cryptic and put a quote that say they were right or wrong.

Here's a statistics I found for this.

1 to 5 is average, 6-11 somewhat intelligent, 12 to 18 intelligent, 19 + is genius.

The rules:
You can't use text slang for replacing for words. Ex: 2 for to, etc. They are used to show quantity.

And put caps for the word that's been shorten and only that word. Don't capitalize the first letter of the cryptic sentence (unless the abbreviation is the first word in the cryptic sentence.

They don't have to be one letter; they can be abbreviated.

They don't have to be time related. They can be about any subject. For example:

11 P in a F (S) T = 11 players in a football (soccer) team
Now then let's start with these.

(Recent update from Blade1991)
5 T on a F = 5 Toes on a Foot (mmmarrriaaa)
18 H on a G C. = 18 holes on a Golf Course (pgoopgoo)
1000 Y in a M = 1000 Years in a Millenia (xxsj89xx)

26 L of the A = 26 Letters of the Alphabet (mmmarrriaaa)
7 D of the W = 7 Days of the Week (anime_otaku-nerd)
66 B of the B = 66 Books of the Bible (mmmarrriaaa)
39 B of the OT = 39 Books of the Old Testament
3 B M (S H T R) = 3 Blind Mice, See How They Run (mmmarrriaaa)
15 P in a R T = 15 Players in a Rugby Team
3 W on a T?
100 C in a R?

12 M in a Y = 12 Months in a Year (anime_otaku-nerd)
13 = UFS?
8 T on an O = 8 Tentacles on an Octopus
29 D in F in a L Y = 29 Days in Febuary in a Leap Year (mmmarrriaaa)
27 B in the N T = 27 Books in the New Testament (xxsj89xx)
365 D in a Y = 365 Days in a Year (mmmarrriaaa)
13 L in a B D?
52 W in a Y = 52 Weeks in a Year (mmmarrriaaa)
9 L of a C = 9 Lives of a Cat
60 M in a H = 60 Minutes in an Hour (mmmarrriaaa)
23 P of C in the H B = 23 Pairs of Chromosomes in the Human Body (mmmarrriaaa)
9 P in S A?
6 B to an O in C?

15 M on a D M C = 15 Men on a Dead Mans Chest [/purple](ariake-luna)
9 I in a B G?
7 W of the W
= 7 Wonders of the World (xxsj89xx)
12 S of the Z = 12 Signs of the Zodiac (xxsj89xx)
13 S on the USF = 13 Stripes on the United States Flag (xxsj89xx)
52 C in a P (WJS)?

I think it would be a cryptic if it was a statement like 4 L in a G = 4 liters in a gallon.
