comment Why does the United States keep using “old” date representations and imperial system, while being in the minority?
re your para about the UK, no one in the UK uses MM/DD/YYYY and everyone, even those who still fight against metric and cherish imperial regard MM/DD/YYYY as completely nuts. just saying.

comment Explaining the data in the 2004 Republican primary results
thanks for the answer but I'm not anti-Bush. for the record i came to the question listening to an old podcast (from the BBC) from the 2000s about sitting presidents in the US getting an easy ride in primaries. the podcast mentioned that it hadn't always been the case which is why i also intro'd my question saying "in recent history". i picked a random party and a random (recent) year to look up in Wikipedia but it could just as easily have been Clinton in 1996. then, seeing that wikipedia page gave rise to my questions. not anti-anything.

comment Who started trams in Delhi?
@Ramit i see it is labelled "Indian English". Not being Indian I had taken it for a typo. Always happy to learn a different English from my own.

comment Has this newspaper printed the wrong picture (as well as a baffling caption)?
so, the Express aren't being so dumb after all. but still "at the battle front near Reims" would be a better caption for a general audience.
