    if user inputs something like "blablabla" scanf will not be able to convert it to int- so the string will be left in the input buffer as is.
    if you use continue and do nothing to the input buffer next iteration will try to read the same string and will fail as well

    you need to get rid of the "blablabla" string before asking user to enter something else. REad FAQ how to do it

    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.
