That people even care about a number combination in an arbitrary calendar system is the most notable fact.

Oh, when another country is different you guys don't take more than a second to go nuts over it, but when your country is doing something odd its now a "Nothing wrong with being different"

Oh and your measurement system...... only reason we do use that terrible feet inches method in Aviation is because of your country.. i mean c'mon, 12 inches in a foot, 3 feet in a yard, etc, etc terrible.. what a mess

Depends what is meant by significant numerical date...

Next year there is 11/12/13 and the year after, for people in the US, there is 12/13/14.

Sorry but that isnt everyone. Also the only reason you have aviation is because of our country. If you dont like it you could just not fly and keep using boats/trains/cars.

PS: Normal long day for me.

Yeah, and pretty much everything else... Computer, Internet, Processors, Microchips. The list goes on and on. If we're so f'n stupid, how come we invent most things?

Wrong.

Kind of a backfire for a comment about not being stupid. But yeah, obviously saying all Americans are stupid is in itself a stupid (and racist) thing to say.

I don't think most people think ALL Americans are stupid.. only stupid people would believe in absolutes like that. But you have to admit, the ratio of dumb people in the US is pretty high for a Developed country.. Perhaps it's not as bad as it seems and "America's Dumbness" is just attracting more attention than it's smartness ever since George W. Bush got so much media attention... Having a president that said things like "Most of our imports come from overseas.." really did not help America's image in the world... and yet the American people elected him for a 2nd term!
