Both are acceptable in the English language, but question mark is used more.

I enjoy dropping silliness in a grim background.

Like the wrecked wastelands I usually fight my friend in with my army of Fascists.

And then things start going wrong in amusing ways.

Ok, the mutant forum and its missing 2% are really bugging the crap out of me. Should the survey really be programmed to truncate the decimals? Seems more like it should round. Then the missing 2% would be found and I wouldn't be aggravated to the point of wanting to gnaw the power cord off my monitor.

We call it "ponto de interrogação". Literally, "interrogation mark".


"Interrogation" in English has a negative meaning. It's the word we use when we think of (for example) police bringing someone into a dark room and acting threatening while asking questions. So if you say "I interrogated Bob about his weekend", it makes it sound like you threatened Bob and tried to force him to tell you about his weekend. Instead, you probably should say "I asked Bob about his weekend" or "I asked Bob a question about his weekend".

Personally, when I saw "interrogation mark", I envisioned something like a burn mark from a cigarette.

Realism was shot right out the door when my transformer drove towards a dreadnought then transformed in mid-air bodyslamming the dreadnought. Later, said dreadnought spinebusters the transformer off the table onto the floor, then into the couch.

Also when I decided to make a Lego transformer and have Mr. Stark drive it.

I prefer to use the law of fudge with rules i can't remember. While i do like balance i lean towards the fudge side more than the warhammer side.
