Aronde has sent in this signage from the Canberra Centre’s Borders bookshop.

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?

Don’t you mean ‘experiemnt’?

This is itself a science experiment.

Its btoh why French Connection (United Kingdom) has an anocrym taht is so eeficftve, and why poor King Cnut the Great flias to gthaer any lvoe in pliubc sohocl hstoiry crouses.

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. 😛

(Apologies to anyone who doesn’t have English as a first language)

back in 1612 – what a year! – they spelt like that…

at least it wasn’t in the dictinoary seciton or anytihng.

Quite frankly, I can’t see anything worng with it.

Maybe that is the experiment
