doesn't make any sense.
Surely any exception to a rule disproves it
didn't you leave work like 20 minutes ago?
Fucking thing has caused me to this your post, among many other fucking irritations.
but can I suggest you start fewer threads?
of course I fucking dont
Actually it a legal term. If yo have a sign that says 'no entry on Tuesdays' Tuesday is an exception that proves the rule that entry is allowed on all of the other days.
genuinely didn't know that. Something learned already.
So it could be a massive Blairite lie.
That just sounds like there is still proof lacking to undeniably prove any rules. Eg, if Tuesday proves it, what if Wednesday also happens to be shut?
In the above example it isn't definite that entry is ok on other days, but it is a fair assumption to base a decision on. No men beyond this point - doesn't actually say women are allowed but it is a good working hypothesis.
...it's scone, or something
