Well, bobsal used "thing" as the verb to deliver a question. Is it a common typo of "think"? Or is it a deliberate mistake to convey something?

You know less about how our government is set up than I do about how the Australian government is set up. I wouldn't have thought that possible.

@maxdancona,
An odd typo. How did the finger mess up "k" with "g"?

If you think that was a typographical error then you have another thing coming.

The eponym of eland, Mrs Malaprop in Sheridan's play The Rivals would recommend that you 'illiterate' it from your memory.

@oristarA,
Is it really that important?

We are none of us (as far as I know) professional typists here.

If you see something that looks like a typo, that's probably what it is.

I don't think any of us have a hidden agenda where the word "think and thing" are meant to have some occult meaning.

I am just guessing. He may have been "typing" with his thumbs on a device with a small screen and an overeager spell check.
