I really enjoyed this error message in a LaTeX file that my office mate came across yesterday while preparing some slides. Usually the errors are quite obvious so there is no need to check the console. This time it was something a bit obscure… so much so that LaTeX suggested:

Pretend that you’re Hercule Poirot: Examine all the clues, and deduce the truth by order and method.

Great! Where is my hat and fake moustache???
