More whence this came.

    Cool and creative! 🙂

    Its terrible what they are doing to that poor chap! 😀

  3. Daddy know best says:

    Think of the children! Kids will try this at home and hurt themselves and others. All images on the web should be passed through a government decency committee!

  4. Phydeau says:

    Grammar nazi alert: “whence” means “from where” so “from whence” is redundant.

    Like “irregardless”.

    Or “I could care less”.

    I liked the “Human Bowling Pins” !!!

    Cool. An interesting artifact is the tripod bounce likely resulting from the flying chap’s take-offs & landings.

    #4–Phydeau==excellent comment.

    1. Are you sure the right word would not have been “frence”

    2. Only because it is about the very issue you raise, this error is not grammatical but rather one of literacy. He used “the wrong word” he did not misuse the word in syntac, tense, and other grammatical issues unrelated to literacy which is “word meaning.”

    Damn, somebody still uses animated gifs! Easily the best gif animation I’ve ever seen, my compliments to the ‘artist’.

    Christ, you do love to watch yourself type, don’t you?

    I would consider saying “from whence” to be in the same category of grammatical error (grammar being is the study of the rules governing the use of a given natural language) as “who did you give it to?” or “kudos are due you for…” or “Our Father which art in heaven”.

    In all cases, “the wrong word” (from, who, kudos as plural, restrictive use of “which”, when the nonrestrictive “that” is correct) is used, and in all cases, they are grammatical errors. If he had said “more whence this avocado”, THAT might be “literacy”.

    Don’t be a pecker-head.

    I’d put ‘whence’ in the category of a who-the-hell-actually-uses-it-anymore kind of word. Since I can’t remember the last time seeing it in print — much less hearing it spoken here in my ‘hood — cut me some slack for even remembering it exists. Anyway, my foe paw has been fixed.

    Wow, a moving image that those who detest Flash can see perfectly. Just imagine if everyone caught on to this idea. You would have websites that presented everything instead of blank home pages and blank areas on other pages everywhere. Everyone with a computer would see what is there and welcome it because it’s simply a gif. Amazing.

    I use it, on occasion. Along with “whither”. Nice set of antonyms.

  13. bobbo says:

    #10–Dave==my, my. Look how sensitive, defensive, and impolite we are to learn anything. Bet you pass that egotism on to those others in the hood. The only correct response to being corrected is “Thank You.” and then you walk away with a smile on your face having learned something.

    At least you aren’t as retarded as Mustard. Amuses me there is a bi-polar activity going on here. The dumbest and the smartest tending to get their egos in a bunch to ever admit they made a mistake or mistatement. Very Bushlike of Mustard. Now, being near the mean in intelligence is not just a factor in recognizing a gift of knowledge. It can also come from learning its values, or the rigors of being a good editor, and from not being a f&ckwad in general?

    Mustard==if it was a cow that jumped over the moon, would it be a grammatical or literacy error to say that a kangaroo did it?

    >>and impolite we are to learn anything.

    >>At least you aren’t as retarded as Mustard.

    Haw! HAW HAW HAW! Do you have any idea what a dimwit you look like? Calling Uncle Dave “sensitive, defensive, and impolite” when he learns something??

    That’s rich.
