Looks like my obtuseness and your acuity met at the junction of opacity and transparency WTF | :WTF:
Quote:
The word “hex” is both a noun and a verb which can either be transitive or intransitive. It can refer to the act of practicing witchcraft or the process of putting an evil spell over someone or something. It is also sometimes referred to as a jinx.
It is likewise synonymous with the words “charm” (to chant or recite a magic spell), “enchant” (to influence through incantations and charms), “bewitch” (to cast a spell over), or “strike” (to affect someone or something with a magic spell).

A hex is expected to bring bad luck to the one who is put under it. It is considered as an evil spell because it wishes bad things to happen to whom it is cast. The infliction and removal of hexes are often done by those who practice witchcraft, and they can be found in every society in most parts of the world.

The word “hex” has been used in Pennsylvania since the early 1800s where there were a number of German and Swiss immigrants. It came from the Pennsylvania Dutch/German word “hexe” which means “to practice sorcery or witchcraft.”
