Does WW now claim that

1/((((((10^0)/10)+10^1)/10)+10^2)/10)+

somehow produces the sequence
0_2 1_1 .
0_2 . 1_1
0_4 1_3 0_2 . 1_1
0_4 1_3 . 0_2 1_1
0_6 1_5 0_4 1_3 . 0_2 1_1
0_6 1_5 0_4 . 1_3 0_2 1_1
0_8 1_7 0_6 1_5 0_4 . 1_3 0_2 1_1
0_8 1_7 0_6 1_5 . 0_4 1_3 0_2 1_1
...
?

And I certainly DO see ways how WM's nonsense can be avoided.

A simple PLONK would do it, but I find more amusement in seeing WMs
struggles to maintain what little sanity he has left and still support
the insupportable.
