RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2020.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $2200Goal: $3000

"There is a lot/number of things" vs. "There are"[edit]

A quick google only turns up people saying that it's "there are", not "there is". Where do you get that it's "there is"? Nullahnung (talk) 10:42, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Like I said, singular v.s. plural -- ("there is a number" versus "there are a number"). Mind you that the technically wrong form is so ubiquitous that I'll not raise any contest if you insist you want it to be "are". Lola Lazerface (talk) 04:45, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
There is a difference between "there is a lot of competition" and "there are a lot of sharks". Similarly, you would say "there is a handful of water" and "there are a handful of donuts" It appears the deciding word for plural/singular is not 'lot' or 'number' or 'handful', but rather what comes after. I know it goes against a good sense of grammatical structure, but I've long since accepted that English is one of the weirdest languages out there. Nullahnung (talk) 10:36, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
Actually, I think this is enlightening: [1]
Let me ask you this. Would you ever say "A few of us is hungry"? Do you consider that to be a different case to "Hungry people. There is a few of us"? If so, why?
My personal conclusion is that English is weird and there is no solution to this dilemma. Nullahnung (talk) 10:51, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
English is indeed weird, and that's why I like to stick with the SINGULAR = IS thing even when it's counter-intuitive. And so should you... for language! Lola Lazerface (talk) 09:47, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

If you want to discuss anything with RW's users...[edit]

...the appropriate venue is RationalWiki:Saloon bar, not Talk:Main Page. Also, you seem to have removed content from your talk page without moving it to an archive page. I suggest you fix that - people here don't look kindly on removing talk page posts.--ZooGuard (talk) 19:30, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Old Talk page:[edit]

Weird user name.--ADtalkModerator 00:36, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

If I were an admin, I'd block it. - LucidFox (talk) 01:51, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Mmmmbop. - I fucked the girl in Hanson (talk) 00:38, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Err. I would congratulate you, but I don't know whether this girl is a transvestite. In any case, welcome!--Colonel Sanders (talk) 00:43, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

And that would stop you from congratulating him? - LucidFox (talk) 01:51, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
It was a strange, strange joke set upon a premise that was not even wrong. I didn't even know how to address it. Blue Talk 01:55, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

I'll go against my principles and explain the joke for the sake of friendliness: Hanson was a 90's band consisting of 3 teenage boys, one of which was easily mistaken for a girl. Thank you for the warm welcome. I've been reading this wiki at somewhat regular intervals for about a year or so now and while I have negligible wiki experience, I felt like I could perhaps contribute as I noticed a few articles were missing fun facts. Actually registered some time ago, but before I could even add info on John Hagelin's fraudulent studies of TM's supposed efficacy to the Transcendental Meditation article I was blocked for a week. So here I am again, tired and rambling. - I fucked the girl in Hanson (talk) 00:50, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks....? We don't geddit here. But you seem trusworthy enough.--Colonel Sanders (talk) 00:53, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Why thank you. Only time will tell exactly how trusworthy I am, or even active, for that matter. Now I sleep. Let's talk tomorrow and be friends. - I fucked the girl in Hanson (talk) 00:56, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure more than one of them was mistaken for a girl. They all looked like girls. BTW, I'm not an expert on the subject but I've taken a few anatomy classes and I am pretty sure that the sphincter between the buttocks is not the same as the "vagina" (the female reproductive organ), and that you may well have "fucked" a man. Check for a wrinkly sac and a fleshy tube. Should be found in the midst of pubic hairs.--"Shut up, Brx." 00:57, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
This "vagina" you speak of is a liberal cesspit that caused the election of Barack HUSSEIN Obama, the creation of welfare, and disease. It is a result of the fall of man and the iniquity of the world (Genesis 3). It is the reason there is malnourishment, poverty, and why there is a national debt. In other words: pure evil. Anything you hear otherwise is deceit. Please check your facts before speaking again.--Assfly 01:20, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
I believe a slow clap is in order. - I fucked the girl in Hanson (talk) 17:24, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Changing username[edit]

What would you like it changed to? -- Nx / talk 18:17, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

"WF Lizardbrain" would do. Thank you! I fucked the girl in Hanson (talk) 18:36, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
Done. -- Nx / talk 18:42, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
You. You're a good person. WF Lizardbrain (talk) 18:43, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
