    Is it “Looks like you’re lucky” or “Looks like you got lucky”? And how did this get past proofreading?

    @runar

    Good catch. Apparently Scott and I need more editing…

    We’re missing the word “okay” in there. I would have read this a million times and not noticed.

    There’s an old perception/proofreading test that involves repeating words on either side of a line break. Some 80% of people who read the text miss the repeated (or in this case missing) word.

    My mind skipped the “you’re” and read it as “Looks like you got lucky.”

    The danger of always being too close to deadline.
