    What comes after thrice?

    Nothing, I'm afraid. These three are the only words of their type, and no further terms in the series have ever existed (the suggestion of `quince' for `five times' is picturesque but no more!). Presumably the language has not felt the lack of them.

    That saying comes from the "Old Days". And back then people didn't have alot of stuff.
