Aw I'm so sorry M3!! It's bad to have jokes at your expenses

Ah, don't worry. In my family we tend to make lots of jokes about each other, so it's not anything severe like "M³ is such a moron and she can't brake or turn and..." 

*19-- make what you wish of that, George*

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

..... You consider the forum family.

..... You come here daily, even though yesterday sucked here.

..... You ask people's opinion of a very long and depressing story I wrote.

..... You remember specific days.

.. you take care of it like a family member.

 

.. you feel cared. Thank you SunKing and Gniknus. apple01apple01

 

Guys I don't want to make the thing from yesterday bigger, but I want to say I truly appreciate that some of you were worried about me getting angry with this guy, and again, thanks SunKing and Gniknus and the rest (if I'm forgetting a name) for defending me.

 

To be honest, the insults of this guy are nothing. I just don't have time to get angry with things trolls say.

Yeah, but according to Cambridge University Corpus, it's very common for the English Native speaker to say There's people.

 

(that's what I say when I get caught in an error opssss)

Attempting a re-railment here...

 

...When you leave the forum for four months because you have too much gosh darn homework, yet can't stop thinking about it and come back because you miss it too much even though you're supposed to be doing said homework.

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

Actually it sounds like There's because the plural in people is not that obvious. It's like saying "there's a couple of". It's normal to say it because of the "a"

Well at least that's what I explain when students ask me why that mistake is done. I've discussed this with other teachers and we agree on this. We might be wrong though.

I miss George. I've neglected the Beatles for a while for a very much needed detox but now my body is missing them. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

You know you're a hardcore Beatles bibler when you come here even though you are not listening to the Beatles to detox yourself.

Of course I am Mith. I would need to probably smoke plenty to even bring myself to read it. Again, sarcasm.

No if you avoid The Beatles on purpose.

I think it's because words like "couple," or "group," or "team" are a collective singular noun. That's why it's OK to use the singular.
