The puzzle, of which there is only one copy, was created as part of Jacobs' upcoming book, The Puzzler: One Man's Quest to Solve the Most Baffling Puzzles Ever, from Crosswords to Jigsaws to the Meaning of Life (Crown, April 26). Jacobs will unveil the puzzle and discuss the recursive math behind it and how it crushes the previous world record by 13 orders of magnitude.

"A Story That Doesn't Die: Women at Work" with Jeanine Meyer (available for online and in-person registrants)
In October 1993, The New York Times published and article with a very misleading headline. While the analysis has since been debunked, the story continues to reappear. Join an interesting discussion led by Jeanine Meyer about the context of the article and the math behind it. Questions to ponder include: are the situations in question worthy of news articles? What would be a good headline? Why does this story reappear?
