I use American spelling for almost everything, and am happy to use American grammar, and generally, I'm a big fan of the country, but there's a few things that really grips my shit, as we say here:

1. Dates. You don't say 45:2 when it's a quarter to three, so why the fuck do you say 2/11? It makes no sense.

2. Imperial units. Fuck off. How many furlongs per hour were you going?

99% with you, Kropo...except that I drank half a dozen pints earlier.
Week off. Sun shining. My tolerance for Impy Units is high.

What Migs is really trying to get at, is that your very presence here is an instigation or provocation. That's how Migs rolls.

Keeping Rossi and Lorenzo at Yamaha in 2017 ?tricky?

Quote:
Yamaha will have a tough job convincing both Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo to spend another season as teammates, according to Tech 3 boss Herve Poncharal.

Both Rossi and Lorenzo are out of contract at the end of the season, and the future plans of both riders are likely to prove key to the 2017 rider market.

While Yamaha has indicated its preference to sign new deals with its existing riders, Poncharal says the tensions that arose between the pair in the closing stages of last season could make keeping both riders together another season a tall order.

“Lorenzo and Rossi both had a two-year contract, so it was out of the question to consider anything else than their coexistence,” the Frenchman told Motorsport.com.

“What happened took a toll, so whatever happens, it seems tricky to consider keeping Lorenzo and Rossi at Yamaha in 2017.

“If Lorenzo stays, I don’t know if Rossi will want to stay, and vice versa.”

Poncharal admitted he was unsure if Rossi, who turns 37 this month, is ready to hang up his helmet, but noted that he looked as fit and motivated as ever during last week’s pre-season test at Sepang.

“Given the way I saw him working at Sepang, the way he strung laps together, the way he pushed in difficult conditions that require top physical shape and motivation, I couldn’t say that I feel like he’s leaving,” he said.

“But I don’t feel like he’s [definitely] staying either. I have no idea, only he knows.

“I think he’ll wait four or five races to see how he’s doing compared to the rest of the field. And if he finds himself in a good position, I’m not sure he’ll throw in the towel.

“He’s a fighter, that’s what is incredible about this rider, this man – it’s his ability to always take pleasure, always be motivated.”

Asked if he felt Rossi’s decision whether to retire after 2016 would play the deciding role in determining the Yamaha line-up, Poncharal said that getting Lorenzo’s signature could be even more crucial.

“At Sepang, Lorenzo said that he wanted to sign as early as possible – if possible before the start of the season – and that his dream was to stay with Yamaha until the end of his career,” said Poncharal.

“Given his performances, if he were to tell Yamaha: ‘If you don’t sign me before Qatar, or before we’re back from Texas, I’m joining another factory,’ I wouldn’t like to be the Yamaha team principal.

“Therefore, if they happen to sign Lorenzo very quickly because they think they have to, maybe Rossi will be wounded in his pride.”

By identifying yourself as one of those who take pride in being the hate spewing goon squad. Let's face it - you dragged yourself into the conversation. You guys always pull the same shit. You start up some crap pretending that you expect no response and then make yourselves out the victim, claiming the person you insulted "started it" .

BTW - nice job avoiding conflict with me.

I don't know how you write out dates over there in long form, but if you are, using 2/11/16 is just a shortened version of the long form...

February 11, 2016 = 2/11/16

Unless you want to be more proper and say, the 11th day of February, Two Thousand and Sixteen, then you'd get 11/2/16 in shortened form.

2/11/16 makes perfect sense.

Or you could do 2/11/2016.

Issuing proclamations is better suited for a more proper written form of month, day, and year.

Or you could go with Y-M-D... 2016-2-11 which is also acceptable. Sometimes I use that depending on which country the person I am conversing with hails from.
