39. Thanks for the unverifiable claim....
Edited on Sun Jan-11-09 06:36 PM by BlooInBloo
EDIT: The unverifiable claim involving a 40 year old reference even. And a reference that currently DOES has the usage I employed.

EDITEDIT: I mistakenly assumed that the current reference was among the links I provided. Here it is, as their #1 usage: http://www.bartleby.com/61/42/C0684200.html

I don't for a second belief that your "real" book doesn't have the usage. But it's unverifiable.
