We were fooled by this star. Why would there be a star in the middle of nowhere, unless it marked the border between England and Scotland? Unfortunately we didn’t have a detailed map with us… if we had, we’d have realised the border was just a few hundred metres further on.
I think the star is there to confuse naive Englanders, so that Scotland doesn’t have to deal with them.

Question by Scottish lad: What do you think about language decline?
I’m from Scotland. Here 300 years ago there was no such thing as the english language. People here spoke either norn, Gáidhlig or lowland scots. but since then our three native languages have almost disapeared as a result of globalisation by the media and (sometimes violent) anglicisation campaigns by the english government as late as the 1940s.
Resultedly, the norn language is now completely extinct. Gáidhlig has been reduced to 54,000 speakers in scotlands most isolated mountain villages, only 200,000 people with an average age of 60 speak Lowland scots, which faces extinction. I feel that this is a great loss to our culture and heritage that we have lost our native languages. In fact many people in Scotland are barely aware of the existence of these languages.
Every weak a language dies, and by 2050 over half the worlds languages will be extinct as a result of globalisation.
Do you think something should be done?
