This challenge has all sorts of issues.

This challenge is buggy at best. I have acually copy and pasted the code from the download into the workspace and it does not work. I have tried it in codepen and in different browsers and it does not work. When you are trying to learn and things don't work as expected it makes things a lot more frustrating. Overall, a great course, but this challenge is not ready for prime time.

You're creating an infinite loop. Every website like Codepen/Jsbin etc; have infinite loop prevention. Hence why it doesn't work.

Hi Jeffrey,

Sorry to hear this is giving you trouble. Have you tried manually typing the code into Workspace as oppose to copying and pasting?
