Is it Million or Millions?

Post by pichu on Wed Dec 17, 2008 6:36 am

When you saw a random number to go with it do you say 4 millions? or do you say it without the S?

Help me here, my English spelling and grammar isn't as prestige as some of yours. Sad

If you have a specified number you leave the "s" away... as in: "Sony sold 7 million consoles less than Microsoft."

If you have a unspecified number you ad the "s"... as in: "Sony spent millions on useless ad campaigns."

Now that we have set aside that question, next answer me this -

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that Acme junk, why didn't he just buy dinner?

He was ridiculed countless times and wanted the perfect revenge by catching, killing and eating the roadrunner.

But who is to say he didn't buy it on credit under a fake name so he would not have to pay back the amount owed?

I think that this is a perfectly logical question. Stop doing this now. I like you better when you don't make any sense.
