I never understood the truism that requires an exception to prove a rule.
And how can that exception prove it? .
Makes no sense to me at all—not logical or illogical.
“Phenomenon” is defined by Merriam-Webster as “an unusual…thing.”
It is a thing of such rare and unusual occurrence that it has the power to make believers out of nay-sayers, cause strong men to cry, businesses to close, and folks to quit their day jobs.
Need another hint?
