    Think I've spotted what's wrong.... but if so it took a long time....
    but I don't want to spoil it for others. (That way no one can tell if I have got it wrong....:tongue::tongue: )

    It's those 'white supremacist' loonies almost half-way down the list.
    And 100% of students in South Carolina "could not find the error above" :tongue:

    YOu can't say what's "wrong" with it without knowing what it's supposed to be.
    I'll give you another one:
    1 ... 2 ... 3 ... 4 ... 5
    What's wrong with the above sequence of numbers?
