Noh Mo MiszSpelling Puhleaze!

Ancient Egyptian Handbook of Spells Deciphered Among other things, the "Handbook of Ritual Power,"

as researchers call the book, tells readers how to cast love spells, exorcise evil spirits and treat "black jaundice," a bacterial infection that is still around today and can be fatal. The book is about 1,300 years old, and is written in Coptic, an Egyptian language. It is made of bound pages of parchment — a type of book that researchers call a codex.

Your Say

My uncle Louie Lozko, we all called him "Letsgo Lozko", he raised bantam chickens. He was active in WWII but he said little of his duty. After his death we found some notebooks and mementos hidden under the floorboards of his chicken coop.

One such notebook had the barely discernible title "Chicken Talkers". It contained the following text:

The passage I am seeking is Isaiah 19:19-20. It is a pivotal quote in the first volume of a four volume set on pyramidology that I bought in San Francisco for sixty bucks, but the author has written the passage in its original Hebrew, fully aware that the reader will have to refer to the Bible to find out what is said. The only thing else he lets you know about the passage is that it contains 30 words and 124 Hebrew letters, and that when the numerical value of these ancient words is added up by a process known as Gematria the sum total of the passage equals 5,449, which is the height of the Great Pyramid in pyramid inches.
The pyramid inch is a unit so close to our own inch (25 pyramid inches = 25.0265 of our inches) that I will henceforth refer to these units simply as inches. 5449 is also the weight of the pyramid in tons times a hundred.
Comparisons continue ad infinitum. Compressed within the scope and accuracy of the Great Pyramid’s angles and proportions seem to be all the formulae and distances pertinent to our Solar System.
