So, yeah. That happened.
Newsletter created, old (shh! let’s pretend that didn’t ever happen) newsletter subscribers imported, first (yeah, yeah, technically: new) newsletter sent. And now a second issue.
Well, this is a real thing that is actually happening now!

How to order a pizza in Thelema
First, perform the LBRP
Then, decide what size (“But exceed! exceed!”) and shape (○=□) of pizza order to make … uh oh. We’ve got a schism already! And, we’ve come up with a new heresy! Huzzah!
At some point we’re going to have to decide whether this pizza is going to Fill us or Kill us
Aum! Let it Fkill Me!
Aum! Let it Fkill Me!
Has anyone asked yet if Aiwass is allergic to anchovies? If not, we’d better start that operation now … or we’ll be here until the NEXT Aeon.

Absolutely amusingly, the missing line in the translation of page 12 is:

Hahahah! That’s kind of perfect for a line that got missed for so long, don’t you think? Over the years I’ve fixed a few things with the cipher pages, but that one is probably the most amusing.
Anyhow it’s fixed now.
I wonder how long it will take all the sites that have copied their work from Hermetic Library to correct their versions?
