  • $\begingroup$ OEIS has this sequence. $\endgroup$ – greenturtle3141 Mar 8 '17 at 19:53

    $\begingroup$ @GwenKillerby: It's not supposed to be a model, but a bad example. $\endgroup$ – M Oehm Mar 8 '17 at 20:28

    $\begingroup$ @GwenKillerby Pretty much any bare OEIS sequence is a bad puzzle; such puzzles are uninteresting and, in many cases, are less an exercise in "deduce the pattern" and more one of "guess what sequence the poser was thinking of". Beastly Gerbil already pointed you at the post which mentions why these tend to make bad puzzles; maybe you should read it instead of challenging the helpful critique. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Mar 8 '17 at 21:00
