Users of magick are pretty hot on the idea that the bedrock of their reality manipulation techniques are linguistic. If words are thought control and if you want to become a good spell caster it’s vital you brush up on your articulacy. That includes the basics such as, err, spelling. So, if The Gods really are magick users who manifest their intent with language I suspect this story will annoy them a little more than their followers here suspect. From Oklahoma’s NewsOK:
A Ten Commandments monument is up on the grounds of the state Capitol, but it didn’t pass spell check.
“Remember the Sabbeth day, to keep it holy,” reads one.
“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidseruent,” reads the last one.
Rep. Mike Ritze, whose family paid for the monument that was put up Thursday, said the monument company has been contacted and will correct the errors to the words Sabbath and maidservant.
“It’s a simple fix,” said Ritze, R-Broken Arrow, who hasn’t seen the installed monument. “Scribner’s errors or misspellings are not uncommon with monument manufacturing.”
A side note here: I’m convinced that the law of returns will dictate I’ve left a spelling mistake in this article and now look like a total twunt. If you spot one please don’t point it out in the comments section, it’s been a busy day…
