andrewagill: KellyX: That author wants me to stare at the sun? No, sir! I was told to never stare at the sun!10:11, Personal note: When I was a little kid my mother told me not to stare into the sun. So once when I was six I did. The doctors didn't know if my eyes would ever heal. I was terrified, alone in that darkness. Slowly, daylight crept in through the bandages, and I could see. But something else had changed inside of me. That day I had my first headache.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: OK, I stared at the black and white swirly thing for over a minute, but then didn't see jack shiat on the sun pic. But now I'm having these.... really.... strange.... thoughts. About, like, assassinating a certain political figure. Almost like a compulsion, really. I've also got this address, somewhere in LA, showing up in my vision as a place to get the guns. And there's a pounding in my head, something about.... shape changing aliens who are using us for food..... And I keep hearing this deep voice: "DOOOOOOOOOM.....DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM,... DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMM....... "So this is not what I should have gotten out of the article?

jack21221: zinethar: No. Company names have been classified like collective nouns. Mentally replace the name with "they" and you'll get it right.Collective nouns are singular. So, NASA should not be classified as "they," but rather "it."For example, "The chain of mountains is beautiful" is correct. "The chain of mountains are beautiful" is not./this is how it works in the US, anyway. Britain is different//SAT instructor
