    Randomly, what does the (sic) in the quote mean?

    From Wikipedia:

    "[SIZE=-1]SIC may mean one of the following: *[sic] or (sic) (from Latin sic for "thus"; see also list of Latin phrases) is a bracketed expression used to indicate that an unusual spelling, phrase, or any other preceding quoted material is intended to be read or printed exactly as shown (rather than being an error) and should not be corrected."[/SIZE]

    Google is your friend, Ben! You should try it some time. ;)

    It means that the incorrect spelling or usage is a real part of the quote, and not an error on the part of the person doing the quoting.

    sic is Latin, meaning "thus".

    EDIT: Too slow, again!

    sic = the person you are quoting has spelt something wrong or is grammatically incorrect.

    Well, assuming that he was corrected regarding the past tense of 'teach', presumably he'll go into the hairdressers next week and ask to have his hair 'blaught'....
