We all make mistakes; some are just done more intentionally than others.

So apparently people eat Tide Pods®. Seriously? What the hell are our brains even for at this point?

But speaking of malfunctioning brains, it’s just (at least, at the time of this writing) come to my attention that I made a typo while transcribing last issue’s (mathNEWS 136.2) haltingPROBLEM: the 2 and the 5 in the fifth column from the left are in the wrong spots, so from top to bottom, the column should read “1 2 5“, instead of “1 5 2”. Stupid mistake on my part, really, and especially after promising that this one was solvable. For what it’s worth, if you swap those two numbers, it really does have a unique solution. (Again, I checked with the correct numbers, and itorED can vouch for it.)

Anyways, here’s this week’s mathNEWS:

Sorry about the mistake in the nonogram everyone. Have a great Reading Week.

This Keeps Happening

I swear we already did this two weeks ago.

Does this just keep happening? Will it ever stop? Am I going to be stuck in this loop forever?

At least I have mathNEWS, I guess…

mathNEWS 136.2 (w/ haltingPROBLEM error)

Update: February 15th, 2018

The original version of this issue contains an error in the rendering of its haltingPROBLEM, which unfortunately renders it unsolvable. While the original will remain online for posterity (for now), you can find a corrected version of mathNEWS 136.2 below:
