...or how two egregious misspellings could change the world

There is, at least in the Google universe, only one website which contains the misspelled words 'languoruous' and 'appropos'. This one. And this was the pathway of one visitor, who apparently likes to spell things the way I do, and who just might've clicked on Flos or Disputations or Dylan, or who might've clicked on Peter Kreeft's site and become a convert to Christianity, sired a devout son who became a priest - a priest who eventually became the first Pope from America, which led to the conversion of the U.S., which led to a revival in Europe, which led to...

Or maybe he just said, 'what the...' and clicked away thinking, 'that dude can't spell'.
