    In-neresting. Come to think of it: Considering the ancient and haphazard history of the alphabet, isn’t it amazing that we have even one letter–O–that looks the same from whichever angle you view it. C is close, but damaged, and V and A are almost reverses of each other, but with a dissimilarity that makes all the difference. Same, come to think of it, with N and Z, in whose case the up/down/horizontal orientation on the line makes all the difference.

    Gee! This is fun!

    AND, now that I see it in print, I realize we need to add P and R to this list, as well as Q to the O,C grouping. And the real miracle is that these shapes, as similar as they are, represent absolutely different sounds. Is that not a mind-boggle??

    Really really nice. I don’t think my brain could figure that out.
