Thanks Mike

Despite the negativity of the naysayers, this is an important story.

I plan to set the alarm in case anything much happens. If doesn't, I may have a mug of cocoa and a biscuit to celebrate. I'll Twitter it of course. Never eat without a tweet.

Actually, this has already happened in the vast majority of countries that write the date as month/day/year.

It's only the backward pissant countries like Oz that continue to do it the wrong way, even though the banks long ago recognised that this was correct on our credit cards.

Now if we start driving on the right, with left-hand-drive cars, we would dramatically reduce the cost of our automobiles by conforming to the standard. Oh and what happened to left turns on red?
