Why does he have everything then?

>>120960744
It's just basic economics: too much money means inflation.

>many

>>120961203
He's talking about humans.

Too "many" humans is grammatically more sound than too "much" humans.
>>
>>120961298
>He's talking about humans

That's even more retarded.

>too many humans is grammatically more sound

Sure, but "too many of anything", is fucking not.

Learn your english, bitch nigga.
>>
>>120960744
I mean, tautologically he's right.
Too many of something is obviously a bad thing; if it weren't, then it wouldn't be too many.

The question then is 'how many is too many?'.
>>
>>120960768

Because he only has one of everything
>>
>>120961533
>Sure, but "too many of anything", is fucking not

'too many of anything' is just as grammatically correct as 'too many of them'. There is no problem with it, it's just not as common as the saying 'too much of anything', which would *not* be grammatically correct in this instance.

It's not a countable noun so no. Go back to school or some shit, you clearly need it.
>>
>>120960768
Because he's a shit
>>
>>120961911
>It's not a countable noun
anythings is grammatically correct.
You're just mad you called someone out on something that wasn't wrong.
>>
>>120962111
>anythings is grammatically correct

It sounds awkward so not really. Grammatical rules, after all, are only there to stop shit from sounding awkward.

I guess there's no way to teach people to simply not be born retarded.
>>
>>120962111
Anything is a pronoun. Pronouns are not countable; that's why the plural of he, she and it is 'they'.
>>
>>120962210
But there are plenty of instances where something is grammatically correct and still sounds awkward

>>120962530
Then it is grammatically incorrect, despite what your autistic English teacher might say.
>>
>>120962632
The entire point is that even though it is grammatically correct it shouldn't be used

Your made up definition doesn't mean anything
>>
>>120960744
Gil is always right.
>>
>>120962752

Gil=/pol/?
>>
>>120960744
Well, I was reading an article about the stepford students taking over Britain, and it occurred to me that even such things as freedom and wealth can become distasteful if you have too much of them.

So yeah, I guess I agree with Gil.
>>
>>120960744
If you think he's right, why not reduce the size of humanity by starting with yourself?
