Stolen Bike - a few weeks ago someone left an expensive mountain
bike in the car par to our flats. We have stopped at least 2
attempts to steal it by hooded yoofs. Now we have it under lock
and key. But how to find the owner is a moot point. We have tried
Hillingdon Council - they say its a police matter. We have tried
the local police and they says its a Council matter. CJB


We Americans have a saying for the inadequacies of buckytooth
limey government, SNAFU (situation normal all ****ed up).
Deal with it!
*Why would anyone leave an expensive bike just lying in public with
no lock?

Why would an adult want to ride a bicycle anywho?
*Why would an adult let an anywho ride their bike?

Hitler.

Your answer makes no grammatical sense.* You can't answer a why with a
pronoun.


"Hitler" is a proper noun, not a pronoun.


Don't care.


aka you haven't got a clue.

There is no reason why a question may not be answered - colloquially -
with a marker term which plainly stands for a whole argument, though
in the instant case, Godwin threatens to intervene.

I could have just written: "Godwin".


My question was making fun of someone using a non-existant word,
"anywho".* Replying to that with a person's name makes no sense whatsoever.


You mentioned an adult.
Hitler was an adult (in form, at least.)
Languages make up words all the time.
Get used to it.
