— About Errata —
Errata is a web journal written by Robert Davis who has
neither spent a night in a ghost town nor pulled a
turnip from the earth. He doesn't even know if turnips grow in the
ground. Perhaps on trees, like candy corn. Therefore, Errata is
a non-commercial project.

Observation #2: It may be appropriate, when leaving a movie theater, to
say "mysterious" at the top of your lungs. Bring your eyebrows together
before you say it. Effective!
Observation #3: Same for books. Even at libraries.
There is a prize for people who correctly guess the thing about
Except where the text specifically states otherwise,
Errata's vagaries are indicated vaguely and its
authors are indistinct in the traditional way of the Internet,
except where the authors lay claim to their work. In some
cases Robert Davis lays claim to work that is
not his own but has been abandoned like so many
ghost towns. Except where
held presently, fistfuls of
dirt are suspended via dispersal, or dispersed via
suspension (in the air), and thus their
dissolution is their transcendence, or their transcendence
is their dissolution. And yet our
eyes tear, and our vision is impaired, demonstrating for
the umpteenth time that
one entity's gain is another's fit of sneezes.
Except where indicated, storms shall outlive the
clay upon which they rain, unless storms are improperly delimited by
their clouds, which dissolve, rather than by their
inevitable return. Thus the clay loses, unless
the clay is said to own the storm, to
use it to make itself heavy, to make itself cling to white
garments, refuse dispersal, cake upon the facades
of abandoned buildings, and sit like Man [sic]
upon the earth where it is pelted by a storm that it owns.
In which case the clay still loses, if you ask us.
Some of the above is
legally binding and should be considered a mental
contract between Errata and those upon whom
it acts. The bit about the prize should be considered
an overstatement insofar as prizes differ from dirt
and prize dispersal differs from dirt dispersal.
Please recall that ownership is a weight and, therefore, hope
that you do not win the prize.
