O-New: Now Extinct Website

An Exercise in Recursion

Remember NaNoWriMo? Yeah, it ended. You should be done your 50k-word novel by now, like I did.

Except not really. Turns out I’m about 300 words short.

I sincerely apologize for the misleading preamble I previously prefixed to the preceding presented post. I believe I accidentally calculated for nine repetitions of the story when there should only have been eight.

Furthermore, in the same post, I had mentioned that one answer was incorrect for not being ‘had had’ because the dream in the first iteration happened before a past event. That is not true: the answers are incorrect because the James and John on their test wrote their test in a flashback (i.e. before a past action).

For these and similar transgressions I offer you this token of apology, crafted from a chain of fine bone teeth structures of an extremely bizarre nature, for they are simultaneously bones and teeth

P.S. Did you know: the word count of that post is an exponential function, increasing by a factor of approximately three every iteration

P.P.S. Did you know: I hate math

P.P.P.S. Did you know: this was what O-New articles were like in 2010. And 2011. And 2012.
