Abstract: A real-valued continuously differentiable function $ f$ on the unit interval is constructed such that

$\displaystyle \sum_{k=1}^\infty \beta_f (x, 2^{-k} ) = \infty $

holds for every $ x \in [0,1].$ Here $ \beta_f (x, 2^{-k} )$ measures the distance of $ f$ to the best approximating linear function at scale $ 2^{-k}$ around $ x$.
