    Meanless or meaningless? (OK, I know it’s just a typo; I make plenty of ‘em myself, but I couldn’t resist this.

    You’re missing a bracket. (Couldn’t resist !) ☺

    Earl’s point got dulled when he mishandled Nelson’s question.

    I think I’d rather forget where it came from.

    1. (On the side that won the American Revolution we call these parentheses, not brackets.) [These are good old American brackets.] {We call these braces; somehow the Brits and their Dominions use them to hold up their trousers.}


    2. I lament the near disappearance from English of great old words like hither and thither and whither, so I appreciate the relative survival of hence, thence, and whence, but the redundant “from whence” just rankles me.


    3. If it’s ring/rang/rung, why should it be spring/sprang or sprung/sprung? I learned “sprang” myself. If English is going to preserve Germanic irregular verbs (ringen/rang/gerungen), then we should be consistent in our irregularity.

    As long as it doesn’t come from the septic tank.

    “from” is redundent with “whence”

    JP Steve: I don’t know if you’ll see this comment but I got your comment on yesterday’s Pickles strip.. It made me laugh. I hate being left handed as I can’t even write without my hand hurting.

    LOL, Take care.

    From whence it came to whence it will go. Hither, thither and yon.

    The most precious substance on earth is fresh water. Keep it fresh and clean. Remember it for in the very near future if not today in parts of the world it is a rare commodity. Various corps understand that and are working to take control of them so that they can make us pay, or die, for it.

    @pschearer

    I agree on the “from whence”; by itself, “whence” means “from where”. Now, if all the people who misquote Shakespeare could get it through their collective thick skull that “wherefore” means “why” and not “where”.

    @Number Three

    Glad you got a laugh, Number Three. I rather like being left-handed, even though writing makes my hand hurt too. I claim to belong to an oppressed minority!

    Remember, only left-handed people are in their right mind!
