1. Is America the country that writes month/day or is England the only country that writes day/month or what?
2.I know I know, this curiousity could be described as morbid buy say someone had a limp anyway and we injured them in the other leg...what'd happen?

No reason. Just curious.

No reason. Just curious.


I see one of two things:
1) They don't limp anymore
2) They double-limp (and yes this is possible)

They'd walk quite slowly. Or with a cane. Or two canes. Or a walker.

i think it's related to the whole american anti-metric system thing.


not sure about england, but i know most other places do "day of year/month" vs "day of month/year"

It makes no since to write day month year. You need to know the month first before the day. You Brits are so backwards driving on the wrong side of the road and all!

1. Americans write month/day
2. I'd imagine he'd have a really hard time walking.

It looks really weird, but it's when you limp with every step. I've done it when I twisted both of my ankles.
