Bill Clinton made famous the line when responding to the grand jury on the Monica Lewinski affair: "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is.” Such a simple little verb with such far reaching aspects.  It’s a verb and an auxiliary verb.  It can be used to form the progressive tense, indicate future action and the all too famous passive voice. Still on its own it remains powerful as equating things, indicating position, identifying a class, to name a few uses.

For entertainment sake, enter it into Google and get a whole host of questions to stir the mind, and make you wonder what the world is really thinking.
