Harry Laugh Circle

Harry

In the news a couple of weeks ago:
Prince Harry raged about social media at today’s meeting on youth mental health: ‘Growing up in today’s world, social media is more addictive than drugs & alcohol. Yet it’s more dangerous because it’s normalised & there are no restrictions to it. We are in a mind-altering time.

Laugh

One has to laugh before being happy, because otherwise one risks to die before having laughed.
This is from: 
“Je crains […] que l’âme ne se vide à ces passe-temps vains, et que le fin du fin ne soit la fin des fins.” (Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac, Acte III, Scène VII)


Circle


The position of the Arctic Circle is not fixed; as of 27 July 2018, it was 66°33′47.2″ north of the Equator. Its latitude depends on the Earth’s axial tilt, which fluctuates within a margin of 2° over a 40,000-year period, due to tidal forces resulting from the orbit of the Moon.
Currently, the Arctic Circle is drifting northwards at about 15 metres (49 feet) per year.
