Another Grammar Rant, This Didn't Take Long
1. The U.S. is one of the few countries that has not nationalized the oil industry and yet it gets hammered for it's "anti-energy" policies.
2. It is said that China manipulates it's currency to benefit itself.
3. Looks like Alaska is now down to about a 1/3 of it's peak.
4. How "big" is ND compared to how big Alaska was at it's PEAK?
5. Experts put max output at 1.0 - 1.2 mpd when it reaches it's peak.
6. Their market share continues it's decades-long slide.
Remember: It's = it is, and if you can't substitute "it is" for "it's" in a sentence, they you should use "its" and not "it's." For example, it wouldn't make sense to say "China manipulates it is currency," so you can't use it's, it should be "its currency."
Sorry for the hectoring, I guess I am just somehow perplexed and fascinated why such a simple grammar rule is apparently so difficult for so many intelligent people to follow, just like I have a fascination with why men wear shorts now year-round, and why cheap, flimsy "footwear" that is readily available at your local drug store is now the footwear of choice for so many people (flip-flops)?
