EVERY "path" taking one AND ONLY ONE element from each row and column of
the T'd list and no two elements from any row or any column of the T'd
List will NOT be in the unT'd list.

So you have found at least countably many nonmembers of the original
list.

Curious, then, that there are so many of them for those who know how to
look for them.
