    Re: How should I write it?

    Do you mean the sky above our heads or Sky TV?

    Hello,

    I mean the sky above our heads.

    I am looking for a kind of slogan, so I am not sure whether it suppose to be:

    sky is us
    or
    sky are us

    Thanks.

    Re: How should I write it?

    In that case, it should probably be The sky is us, but it doesn't mean much to me.

    Well, The meaning is that "we control the sky"... since we need it for an Internet domain, we do not want a very long domain such as:

    "wecontrolthesky.com" or "skycontrolleredbyus.com" both examples are too long.

    So, we thought on going with "skyisus.com"

    Is it more meaningful now or maybe do you have other suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Re: How should I write it?

    Learning that someone wants (or claims) to own the sky would put me off whatever they're trying to sell/promote.

    Would the following put you off too?
