Man legally changes his name to "They"

Not a first name and not a last name - just "They" - and the court granted it.

``'They do this,' or 'They're to blame for that.' Who is this 'they' everyone talks about? 'They' accomplish such great things. Somebody had to take responsibility,'' he said.

Relative to LP and CD music compilations, I would like to be a member of the band "..and More..."

"..and More..." feature on just about every compilation released but I must admit I don't know any of their tracks at all...

Do you have any of their greatest hits at all?

Hey listen, what a great idea. Wouldn't "More" be a great name for someone to change to? "Click here for More." "More to come." The possibilities are endless.

Who's on first? It's a good thing he didn't name himself after a law enforcement agency.

They: straight from Being & Time (Heidegger), silly CNN didn't pick up on this - it's one of the most important philosophical terms of the last century and a foundation block of existentialism, even though Heidegger himself didn't really like existentialism much.

The "who" is not this one, not that one, not oneself, not some people, and not the sum of them all. The 'who' is the neuter the "they" [das Man]

- M. Heidegger, Being & Time, Macquarrie trans., H.126

Basically - the rather meaningless term we use when we specify what 'everybody' does, in all its triteness and superficiality, including eschewing what 'everybody' does as trite or superficial - keeping us locked in a busy circle of self-perpetuating activity that doesn't really go anywhere.

We take pleasure and enjoy ourselves as they take pleasure; we read, see, and judge about literature and art as they see and judge; likewise we shrink back from the 'great mass' as they shrink back; we find 'shocking' what they find shocking. The "they", which is nothing definite, and which all are, though not as the sum, prescribes the kind of Being of everydayness.

H.127 - H. numbers page numbers from later German editions which you'll also find in good English translations

Maybe They just have split personality/ies. Well, They get what They deserves.

(I sure hope They isn't out to get me.)

Now that, er.. They sounds like someone I might run into in certain circles. Of course, he would already know me by my moniker, IAm.

There's something truly SATISFYING about the concept of "who" as a neuter "they"....

I was in a band called "And Support" for a while. We never got to do a headline gig. A while after I left they got a review that said if they don't change the name they'll sink without trace. So they changed the name to "Without Trace", and managed one more gig.
