Scotland, Wales, Ouroboroi and DoubleQuotes

[ By Charles Cameron — a sprinkling of intriguing pieces ]

.

Wales:

That’s a comparison, by Chris Roberts — Brexit Party rally [left] vs Welsh independence rally [right].

A fine DoubleQuote in images, and rich food for thought.

**

Scotland:

Advisers to the Scottish government recommended canceling protections enjoyed by wandering sand dunes in Aberdeenshire

Sand dunes as an endangered species? — again, food for thought!

Indeed:

Wordage:

On the topic of words, these came up in a discussion on Twitter: fict, fact, fuct — the latter from Ali Minai, for a statement claimed to be factual by Trump — and fiction, faction, faketion — the latter from Cynthia, for a fiction Trump claims is true?

Strategy:

“Even Frederick II of Prussia, who was in the enviable position of being strategic thinker, supreme decision maker and commander-in-chief in one, could not implement the Strategy of short, sharp wars that he himself thought most desirable.”

That’s from Beatrice Heuser, The Evolution of Strategy: Thinking War from Antiquity to the Present, via PR Beckman posts it..

Now, how about a couple of ouroboroi?

I hope a school child did this one, not a too-clever adult..

And:

That’s from the film Mississippi Grind. The character cries, “It’s a sign, it’s a sign.”

I told you ouroboroi were significant signifiers.
