I promised lesson #2, “How Come”, so why not?
“How come” encompasses as well a world of imagination I have chosen not to share here.
I speak here of how “how come” came to be equated with “why”, and how it came to seem synonymous with “why”, a fundamentally different question from “how”.
A cursory surf of sites reveals that “how come” is indeed synonymous with “how is it so”.
Damn! I thought that might be a tougher chestnut to scratch- err, crack.
If only "Nutbusters", I mean "Mythbusters" could be so efficient.
