Plural for Databases (Informant)

Submitted by NognomAdmin on Mon, 07/24/2017 - 15:00

Pretty Databases.  I've never seen a data room in the real world this pretty.  Maybe google.

The English language is full of weird confusing things.  Some would say that it's simply bizarre.  Pluralizing words and making them verbs depends on the world.  The Plural of ox is oxen where box boxes.  Why not 'boxen'?  Then there are crazy sentences like this:

All the faith he had had had had no effect on the outcome of his life.

Why Databases should be renamed

One of my favorites, to steal from 'Eats, shoots, and leaves', (Wiki: Eats, shoots, and leaves) is how you place the comma.

So English is crazy.  So what.  

All the Cool Things Get It

If English is already crazy, then let's have fun with it.  All the cool plural words get fun names.

A pack of crows is called a murder.  

One moose is a moose.  Two moose is still moose.  A group of owls is a parliament.  A group of nuns is a superfluity.  What does that even mean?

Databases are Awesome, and they need some love

Databases need some love.  They run everything in our world today.  They help you wake up with your database of various alarms on your phone, and hold a list of your favorite memes.  They help run everything from roadways to taxes.  The control companies as big as google, and as small as your local library.  

So with all of that awesomeness why not give these databases some love.  They control everything they inform us of the millions of things that you need.  They are our informants.
