Pointless Post #54

Someone I literally just met said "See you in the new year!" and then wished me Merry Christmas. So I wished them a Happy New Year. It felt strange because one, I'll probably never see them ever again, and two, it's over 36 days until Christmas.


Here's a funny thing. If you are not happy or satisfied with your current job, I noticed some labels on some dry dog food the other day. One read "Better tasting formula" and the other said "50% less fat, but very tasty [sic]."

You've got to be pretty dedicated to have that job. Or very unfortunate.

Gas was around 115-117¢/litre a few days ago. Phew!

What are Pointless Posts?

I never understood what [sic] means. Explain please

from wikipedia, because the free encyclopedia is more eloquent than i ever will be:

Sic – generally inside square brackets, [sic], and occasionally parentheses, (sic) – when added just after a quote or reprinted text, indicates that the passage is just as it appears from its original source. The usual purpose is to inform readers that any errors or apparent errors in the copied material are not from transcription – i.e. that they are reproduced exactly from the original writer or printer.
