a tirade on the usage of possesives

eg: those books are mine
the word is already in a possesive tense.
you don't need to add an 's'
eg: oh yeah, that book, that's mines
just say MINE
do you know what 'mines' means?
mines: places where minerals may be obtained, either by excavation or by washing the soil.

see the difference?

Little-known made-up fact: the Hidee Mine is the only place outside of the stomach where you can find warm fuzzies.

Also, 's does not a plural make. Can we please educate the world on this one? Please, please, please?! Even if you're texting, it saves no time or effort.
