Q: What did he say?
zone?
A: Yeah, it's "having a zen moment" rather "calming _______"

It's also "the old joke" rather than "all joke"

And "there's two" vs "there are two" is a bit trickier than it seems.

In the former case, it's treating "two elements" as a single unit. The one thing is "two elements." In the latter case, it is talking about more than one element.

In practice there isn't really any distinction in meaning.

I'd say generally it's "more correct" to say there are, but the specific case of "there is" and especially the contraction "there's" gets used a lot by native speakers even when you might naturally expect them to say "there are." You'll hear "there's" a lot more often than "there're" (although people do say that, too).

I'd say, when in doubt, make the verb agree with the the subject and say "There are two." No one will ever think that sounds weird. Just be aware that you'll probably hear "there's" a lot even when it seems like it should be "there are."
Q: What does "zone" in 72 mean?
