comment What is the plural of “Starbucks”?
The trouble I have with this answer is that "blue" is an adjective, but "Starbucks" is generally used as a noun, so I don't think your analogy quite works. I don't think I've ever heard anyone refer to a "Starbucks store" just a "Starbucks". No vote, just comment.

comment What is the plural of “Starbucks”?
Thanks @Kris & Araucaria. I suspect this might be a AE vs BE divide. To my (Australian) ear, it sounds awkward... and my (American) hearing aid isn't doing the translation properly. :-)

comment I recommend vs. I would recommend
@stewSquared: Agreed! I thought it was looking like 2.2 here: en.wiktionary.org/wiki/would "Warnock admitted it would be the ideal scenario if he received a Carling Cup winners' medal as well as an England call-up"

comment Why are you “On a train” yet “In a car” when you are inside both vehicles?
Seems to vary, depending on when the words were written: Google NGram searcher.

@skymninge: I've yet to meet a mother whose off-spring didn't consternate her at some point. Insanity is hereditary: you get it from your kids. :-)
