I certainly agree on the Sixes and Sevens confusion being deliberate, but I'm not so sure about the Nusselt heart-transfer. You ascribe the error to Slothrop, but even though the narrative perspective does seem to be close to Slothrop in the relevant passage, the borders are fluid and one cannot pin down the narrative perspective with any certainty. And the fact that the typographical mistake is common hardly justifies its inclusion (and survival) in GR. Other typos have survived the transition to the repaginated edition of GR as well (Leunahalluziationen on p. 523, e.g. - I've added this to the list of typographical errors elsewhere) so I think we should delete the speculation in note 4 that the heart-transfer mistake is deliberate. It may be, but then again, it may not, and the arguments for a deliberate mistake are not as convincing as the Sixes and Sevens discussion above. Torerye 05:08, 18 December 2006 (PST)
