Not exactly building trust.

I’ve seen religious, new age, hoax and fantasy books in the science section of large book shop chains. Never assume that the people working there are literate.

Surely someone from the company that printed the banner would of rung/email/faxed Borders and asked if this is what they want because there appears to be a spelling error? Or maybe it was an error made by the printer, in which case how did no one at Borders pick up on it before they put it up on display in their shop?

This is itself a science experiment.

Welcome to the wonderful world of sublexical units and the influence of the neighbourhood effect upon split fovea.

Its also an internet meme from 2003. 😛
