Can you imagine any value of y for which at least one side of the OR isn't true?

The answer is no - if y=1, then the right hand side is true, so the whole OR statement is true. If y=2, then the left hand side is true, so the whole OR statement is true. If y= anything else, both sides are true so the whole OR statement is true.

You want it to keep going when: y does not equal one AND y does not equal two.

Thank you so much. Can't believe I didn't notice that.
