The rhetorical question mark first appeared in the 1580s and was used at the end of a rhetorical question. It was the reverse of an ordinary question mark, so that instead of the main opening pointing back into the sentence, it opened away from it. This usage gradually disappeared in the 1600s.Source: WikipediaBut can does the Cow still consider this a reliable source after the recent Wikipedia scandals?

Greetings, Felon;Damnit! Polanski beat me to the clever. Theatre could be fun, but it ain't Hollywood. Can you see through me since I'm so shallow?
Duh. It may be rhetorical but it's still a question. And a question needs a question mark. Or you could just ask this smartass. He seems to have all the asnwers.
Inverted question mark in rhetoric; metaphysical meltdown immanent.////(sorry if I got the last part wrong, working from a fuzzy Incantation memory here)
One byte makes all the difference.
Does a rhetorical question require an answer?
