The cover is incorrect :(

EDIT: If you do not understand this post, read essay 268 from the book!

The code of the shepherds is terrible and stern. One sheep, one pebble, hang the consequences. They have been known to commit fifteen, and twenty-one, and even even, rather than break it.

I just bust out laughing in the office at this...and can't share the joke with anybody.

Now I want to know if the incorrectness is intentional and if so, what message it's supposed to carry.

It's a bluff to make us think Yudkowsky cares about things like human happiness rather than what's right. Don't be fooled!

There might be one more stone not visible?

I see nine stones, not ten.

Three at the back, three at the front, one to one side, one standing up... the question is whether it's standing on one stone or two.

10 would still be incorrect.

Darn it, and I counted like five times to make sure there really were 10 visible before I said anything. I didn't realize that the stone the middle-top stone was on top of was one stone, not two.
