    Excuse me? What brought that on? Are you sure you're replying to the right person? As far as I know, we've never had any real disagreements about anything.

    Do you use the salutation "Howdy" over there? I think it's history in the Ohio valley region is interesting.

    The British used the introductory phrase "How do you do?". The American Colonialist abbreviated that to "Howdy" and the Native Americans abbreviated it even more to "How".

    So if you ever watch an old Western and an Indian says "How"...well no you know where that came from.
    Not really, maybe as a joke but not otherwise. People don't say how do you do either, apart from the Queen and the older royals.
    In rejecting their view [Spinoza, Leibnitz and Hegel], as I shall contend that we must, we are committing ourselves to the opinion that “truth” in empirical material has a meaning different from that which it bears in logic and mathematics.”

    Bertrand Russell, “An Inquiry Into Meaning & Truth” (1940)
