"Why do sentences in Spanish have the upside down “!” and “?” at the beginning?"
They put the punctuation at the beginning of the sentence so you know straight away what type of sentence it is. Unlike in English where you don’t realize until the end and sometimes you have to go back and reread the sentence after you figure out it’s a question.
"Where does the origin of 420 come from?"
