Shall we meet at a quarter to four or three forty-five? :confused:

Where were you on 9/11; the 9th of November? :confused:

Good job the 7 / 7 bombings happened when they did, to avoid any international confusion, what? :confused:

(just to use known examples, not to be disrespectful)

Hehe, I know totally it confuses.. The colonials just want to be different from us ;\ That's my theory. They show that by changing 's' to 'z' and ZEE not ZED... And just swapping our words for other words that have a different meaning! and now our dates?! It's English, not americanish :(
Hid this guys face to hide his shame.


And highlighted the flag to show the photo has been reversed? :rolleyes:


And these?

I could go on lol... :p

OH and just to make it clear... A link from the U.S. Army website.. All-volunteer Army is envy of world, says G-1 Click it to see it bigger ;) I didn't reverse any image..

Funny you cannot "disgrace" the flag by putting it upside down, but backwards is fine.
Enough already!!! (a little Americanism there for you matey!)

Well what do I know? If you google images for "American flag" you get quite the opposite.

  • Fly (length) of the Union: D = 0.76 (B × 2/5, two fifths of the flag length)
  • E = F = 0.0538 (C/10, One tenth the height of the field of stars)
  • G = H = 0.0633 (D/12, One twelfth the width of the field of stars)
  • Diameter of star: K = 0.0616
  • Width of stripe: L = 0.0769 (A/13, One thirteenth of the flag width)
