I read some articles and at long last understood that 'as if' belongs to the same group of sunjunctions as 'I with','it's time' and 'as though' do.
Now it seems that it would be rediculous to say 'he behaves as if he *** crazy'. Aren't we discussing about something untrue, uncertain or impossible? Hypotherical situation, which doesn't or can't happen at the present, at the same time the presons behaves; therefore we assume that if he behavED so it would happen.

Isn't saying that as ridiculous as to say 'I wish I *** here'. And still they are considered grammatical?

Please tell me if my thoughts approach realityEmotion: smile
