I often wish we had an English equivalent of the RAE. If we did, I think they would do away with the "its" spelling, because it is confusing to natives and foreigners alike, it is inconsistent with other English grammar and spelling rules (the possessive takes apostrophe+S), and its existence does not clear up any ambiguity. Until that happens, however, we must continue to follow this silly rule if we want to be seen as educated writers.

http://www.spanishdict.com/conjugate/venirhttp://www.spanishdict.com/conjugate/estarhttp://www.spanishdict.com/conjugate/serToss-up between venir (stem changing) and ser (irregular). Estar is a fairly normal First Conjugation verb.

estar is not regular. (How did we get estuvieron, for example') ser, to me, is particularly confusing because of the preterit which is the same as the preterit of ir.
