I had intended  to contrast this with one of users comments but ran out of time.

Lui Tuck Yew’s preoccupations

Singapore looms largest in this Wordle. So large that it has literally leapt out of the main body of the Wordle. So I checked against a Sukarno speech (which happened to be in English translation) and Indonesia does not take up as much real estate proportionally – far from it. Are we in Singapore too obsessed with our own navels?

World and peace feature prominently in this speech though this man was hardly an icon of peace. Perhaps it just shows his ambitions beyond his country.

I just heard an interview with him on BBC World Service yesterday. He wants to live forever. So his Wordle features “computer” “machine” and shows his faith in science and engineering.

Vamos, Rafa! My favourite tennis player. I wanted to see how his Wikipedia notes contrasted with his own blog but didn’t have time to sign up for the blog. I’ll do it at home.

Surprisingly (to a customer, at least) their recent releases say little or nothing about the World Cup shambles. Instead, NBA and SPORTS stands out. No news is good news?
