Okay, I am going to make a play for the world's longest crossword clue.

1 Ac. No idea, no idea, no idea, no idea, no idea, no idea, no idea, no idea, no idea, no idea, no idea, no idea, <repeated a million times> (3,1,4).

Note to recruiters:
We are quite aware that recruiters, interviewers, VCs and other professionals generally perform a Google Search before they interview someone, take a pitch from someone, et cetera. Please keep in mind that not everything put on the Internet must align directly to one's future career and/or one's future product portfolio. Sometimes, people do put things on the Internet just because. Just because. It may be out of their personal interests, which may have nothing to do with their professional interests. Or it may be for some other reason. Recruiters seem to have this wrong-headed notion that if somebody is not signalling their interests in a certain area online, then that means that they are not interested in that area at all. It is worth pointing out that economics pretty much underlies the areas of marketing, strategy, operations and finance. And this blog is about economics. With metta, let us. by all means, be reflective about this whole business of business. Also, see our post on "The Multi-faceted Identity Problem".

Note that, as before, the clue below is also the world's largest crossword puzzle.

The world's longest crossword clue series continues.

Here is another contended for the world's longest crossword clue. This time, there should be no objections.

1 Ac. In fish's body part, sex appeal. And, in Spain, the number that comes last in the series: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, ... <all numbers from 1 to a hundred million> , 100,000,000, .... (8)

===+===

Note that you can add as many numbers are you want after the number '10'. So this clue is also as long as you want to make it.

In fact, you can make the cardinality equal to aleph-naught. Here is a clue for that.

1 Ac. In fish's body part, sex appeal. And, in Spain, the number that comes last in the series: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, ... <all positive integers included here>. (8)

Here is how the clue is spewed out.

You have a machine that spews out the clue, one word (or to be more precise, one token) at a time. The clue itself is infinite in length. Every positive integer will eventually be covered.

Of course, although the clue is infinite in length, the answer itself is finite in length.
