I don't believe the monkey 'missed' them. They're just not as good as the security checkout toy.

Now if you can find a Playmobil suicide bomber to try and pass through the security checkout with his cleverly hidden liquid bombs in his trousers or under his shirt (and therefore undetectable so long as the bomber remembers to take his keys out of his pocket), I'll be impressed.

Fail!

Calling it 11/9 is no longer big or clever... "9/11" is an event that just so happens to be named for its date.

Problem is if it had been Canary Wharf the Americans would by now either have

1) Forgotten it ever happened (if they'd even heard about it in the first place, it not being in the US of A and all)
2) Think it happened in November

The simple fact that we understand their propensity to break datetime fields gives us the right to dick about with any date related name as much as we want. As an aside, we should call such occurrences Date Appropriated Violence Events - making this one the 253 day DAVE

Did I say it was big or clever? Since I'm not American, the date 9/11 means 9th November to me. Which is the wrong date. It's one thing to play along and pretend it was the worst event to ever happen ever, but I'm not going to change my language to do so.

But no-one knows what you're on about when you say 'eleven nine' :scratch:

I agree with theadore on the point that the event has become known as 'nine eleven' and while I'm in complete agreement over the idiocy of Americans redesigning established words and naming conventions for no good reason, I can't see the point in us doing exactly the same with what has become an internationally recognised term. :-?
