Talk:U.N. Owen was her?
If I could get confirmation that the Ronald MAD is the most popular video on Nico Nico, that would be great. From what I've seen, it seems to be, as it even outranks Miku Miku and Onmyouji. SOMERANDOMTRAINER 01:26, 05 February 2010
- http://dic.nicovideo.jp/a/700%E4%B8%87%E5%86%8D%E7%94%9F is the list of videos with over 7 million views. The Ronald MAD and the Miku Miku ni Shite Ageru video are the only two entries. As of today the Ronald MAD has 7.7M, Miku has 7.3M, therefore the Ronald MAD has the most views of any video on Nico. Arcorann 01:16, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
Great, thanks! --SOMERANDOMTRAINER 03:43, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
Now it's not... sm11372207, "Densetsu no Alpaca" is or was the most viewed video, and it broke ten million, currently at 10,053,047. Unfortunately, it's been deleted.... it appears to have been about alpacas, and after the video ends you're redirected to another alpaca video just called "Alpaca". hahaha. The McDonald video is at 8,889,687. Also, the Bad Apple PV (sm8628149) is at 10,317,853. Seritinajii 18:12, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
- Seritinajii is right, but no one can be bothered to change it... Rushy43 19:51, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
The proper title is "U.N. Owen was She?" It sounds weird, but that's the right way to say it! "Her" is an object pronoun, meaning it can only be used as the direct object (or indirect object, like "I gave her a book") of a verb. But "was" is a linking verb, meaning it has no direct object; therefore, the correct pronoun to be used is "she". "She" is a subject pronoun. Remember that. Back to linking verbs - a linking verb links a subject and a predicate noun or adjective. In this case the subject is "U.N. Owen" and the predicate noun is "her" or "she". When the predicate noun is a pronoun, then subject pronouns are always used, because linking verbs don't have direct objects. SO THEREFORE we use she.
However, there's the problem that nobody refers to it by that name. Search it on Google in quotation marks and not much appears. BUT it's still grammatically correct! What do you guys think? Seritinajii 11:38, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
- Listen, in Japan, Grammar doesn't exist... So we have a hard time thinking of English names... But anyway, it's "U.N. Owen was her?" Rushy43 12:26, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
