The Digital Crosswords on my new website

Inspired by the movie The Theory of Everything starring Eddie Redmayne as the late, great, Professor Stephen Hawking, I took it upon myself to see if I could attempt to simulate the parallel universes he alluded to, with that classic moment, on realising that what was planned took a different course, when the girl dropped her pencil on the floor! It occurred to me that the arena that is a crossword is no different.

I’ll no say men are villains a’; The real harden’d wicked, Wha hae nae check but human law; Are to a few restricked: But och! mankind are unco weak, An’ little to be trusted; If self the wavering balance shake, It’s rarely right adjusted

Robert Burns Epistle to a Young Friend (Andrew Aiken) May 1786 from a land the Romans lovingly described as Hibernia (Winter!).

He could, perhaps, have pass’d the Hellespont, As once (a feat on which ourselves we prided) Leander, Mr. Ekenhead, and I did.
