Topic: Doubletake


In the News (Tue 18 Jun 19)

  
  ENCYCLOPEDIA HANASIANA
Amazingly, AP is declaring last night’s vice presidential debate a draw, despite the fact that the VP lied about everything from whether he’d ever met Edwards before to his constant insinuations that Saddam and al-Qaida had a colloborative relationship.
This graf from the AP story made me do a doubletake.
Both candidates got some encouragement from post-debate polls.

This morning we were flicking through some 1923 issues of The Magnet, marvelling at their “Wireless Dictionary for Boys”, and all the ads for stopping blushing and stammering, curing baldness and growing two to five inches.
We were also rather perturbed to discover a ad for postage stamps offering example stamps from several countries we’d never heard of: notably Polish Silesia, Haute Volta, and Travancore, Schlezvig (along with a slight doubletake at Belgian Germany).
A little googling revealed that Silesia has been split both as Upper and Lower Silesia, and also as Polish and Czech Silesia, and has been reapportioned numerous time - notably after the two World Wars.
