I suppose a reason to pick a different solution could be the reachability, but personally I can't think of a better use for that space anyway :)

Shit. Did some reading up on the Voodoo kit, and it looks like I'm going to spend nearly a G on my front end this winter. Brilliant.

British would say "are", far as I know... Any name that represents a group of people is treated as plural. I've always found it rather silly as well. My native tongue doesn't do that either (Dutch).
