By the way, shouldn't that be, "It is the equivalent of someone's believing in phrenology"?


Would you like me to start a new thread so you can explain, Jim? Emotion: smile
I think we should move this thread somewhere less disturbing to innocent young users.

I'll stick it into 'Topic of the Moment' in a few minutes.
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies
Emotion: smile Whooooeeee!!! That was a fun ride! I was in the middle of writing this and the whole thread went into warps and wiggles and now I'm on a new planet! Guess I'll have to find my way out! Ah, there's someone now. Excuse me ma'am, do you know where ....

Emotion: smile
You just went through a wormhole. Emotion: smile

This is the delta quadrant.

One minute Chenopodiaceae, the next wildly indignant accusations. It's a non-stop roller-coaster ride on English Forums tonight. (Also, quite a long hike from Vocab down to Topic. Was wondering where you'd all got to.)

I would opt for "has" since it is one Association. Even though it is referring to a group of people, I would consider it a collective noun and use "has". Had it been "the members of the Northeast Spa and Pool Association", I would naturally opt for "have". Hope this helpsEmotion: smile .
