Green Beans, Peas and Inverted Carets
« on: January 25, 2018, 01:07:45 AM »
The inverted caret symbol.

Hosty's note, on the top line which you highlighted in yellow, says:

"Mr. Truly had"

In the second line, Hosty noted only one word:

"rifle"

Then, at some later point in time (whether it be only minutes later or days later once he had the opportunity to go over his notes to make things more clear and accurate), Hosty added the inverted caret symbol along with "2 others".

Notice that Hosty's use use of the inverted caret symbol along with "2 others" is written in much darker ink, which suggests that it was added later.

Hosty's use of the inverted caret symbol makes the note actually read:

"day before yesterday
Mr Truly 2 others had
rifle
1st floor outside
office"



Hosty didn't use the inverted caret symbol correctly, but it didn't have to be correct, as long as he understood.  They were only his notes, after all.

The inverted caret symbol is NOT an ampersand logo.

Don't agree that what you call the inverted caret is written i darker ink, and how do you know it was written in later?

Looks all the world as though he was writing "and".

Yes, that is a sloppily scribbled plus, or and, sign  ....but I have to give Billy Bob credit....for inventing that counter point , feeble though it be.

Anyone who believes this is an ampersand logo has issues...

I've certainly got issues, Bill, such as why are you trying so hard to prove it's not "and'?

What do you think he meant by if, as you say he was using a caret, Bill?

I don't need to prove that it's not "and".  Just open your eyes.  The symbol is right in front of you.

As for what I think Hosty meant, read the original post of this thread.  I explained it pretty well.

What you said in your opening post.
"Then, at some later point in time (whether it be only minutes later or days later once he had the opportunity to go over his notes to make things more clear and accurate), Hosty added the inverted caret symbol along with "2 others".[/quote]

How do you know he added them later?

It is not in "much darker ink."

Hoist's [sic] use of the inverted caret symbol makes the note actually read:

As I said before Hosty, probably wouldn't have known what a caret was.

And if he did why would he mistakenly use it?

You answered your own question just before you asked it.

No it isn't. You just want it to be.

So it's just your guess that he used it mistakenly?

Hosty's use of the ampersand logo (the symbol for the word "and")...




Hosty's use of the inverted caret...




Hosty's use of the inverted caret is very obviously NOT the same thing as his use of the ampersand logo.
