Hafez stared at the raised planter in disbelief. He could have sworn it had said "chrysanthemums" on the seed packet.
He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And if you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you.

"We managed to refloat the ship in record time. If such a crisis had occurred anywhere else in the world
it would have taken three months to be solved" said Osama Rabie the Head of the Suez Canal Authority.

If it something similar had happened in for e.g. the approaches to a BRITISH port then Chris Grayling would have been put in charge.  And the ship would have rolled over, blown up and sunk inside 24 hours.

Not so. If Grayling was in charge, there would be no ships.

Grayling would only have been appointed after the ship got stuck.  If he'd been Minister of Aviation before the event, though, then there wouldn’t be any ships.
