Is - singular

are - plural

Using them inappropriately confuses things.


Why are women so hard to understand? :P

Because they're a good stress relief from relationship woes.

Why is it that people don't read the instructions thuroughly?

ie:
rules-you have to post an answer and a question.  you answer the person's question on the post before your's and you as a question starting with "why is" or "why are".

why is this thread being started?

This game's the exact same as the Questions Game, but with an annoying "Why is/are" prefix to the next question...  >:(

(heh, maybe this answer's Lolotte's question as well XD)

Why is this thread copying the other? ;P

Ok, I have an idea of what the thread's about. It's like the questions thread, but more philisophical...Maybe
