  • English being the language spoken in England (and the rest of the United kingdom, along with Welsh, Gaelic and possibly Irish).

    U.S. english is a just a dialect. If people want to be clear they should say 'U S English'.

    Then there are those stupid dates - when will the U.S. use sensible date formats.

    • Right about the same time that us .ukians use sensible date formats too. Representing dates as little-endian is not as stupid as middle-endian, but is still far from the ideal of big-endian dates.

      Big-endian dates avoid all confusion over what 03/04/2000 means, they sort trivially, and they are an ISO standard.

      • but 03/04/2000 means 3rd of April, anything else is just plan wrong.

        They will change the order of months or add Nikember or Bigmactober between november and december next.
