Between My Ears

A pic full of rocks with a question mark painted on one of them

This is where I add notes and thoughts as I study the Bible. Please feel free to comment.

An Interrobang

And he [Jesus] answered them, “O faithless generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him to me.” – Mark 9:19

The Bible does not contain a single interrobang (?!), but I’m confident there are a few times, such as Mark 9:19, when the intent was there.

When a question mark is combined with an exclamation point (?!), it is referred to as an interrobang. Apple Macs, Linux and UNIX computers use a program called “Bash,” and an explanation point (!) in Bash is referred to as a bang. Also in Bash, an asterisk is called a splat and the ampersand “&” is called “donald duck” from the Danish “Anders And”, which means “Donald Duck” –

God’s Word does not have an interrobang. I need to remember that. When the grandkids come to visit, I tend to use many interrobangs. How could I not?!
