lol, ironically enough 7/11 as in the 11th of July (2005) was actually a day when in London a number of terroist tried to blow themselves up but failed (just after the 7/7 attacks. Allthough nobody was killed… Still this person is somewhat misguided.
Well the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 in Russia, though traditionally dated to October, is by some calendars considered to have occurred on Nov. 7. And many European countries put the day first, so that 7-11 would actually mean the 7th of November instead of the 11th of September.
Be careful how you eat your 7/11 Human Bean Burrito. It may seem cool to the touch, even coming straight from the microwave, but the middle of that is like molten lava. Burn the roof of your mouth, it will, it will.
I’ll never understand why people don’t just use their deletion capabilities when they realize how stupid they are. Delete it before everyone else sees it! It’s better to be thought an idiot than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
#20/Jilly – Us Britishers don’t phrase the date with the month first, followed by the day (as in 9/11). We put the day followed by the month. Today, 5th October, is 5/10. 7/11 would be the 7th November to us.
Regardless, I really don’t think she’s talking about the London bombings or Mumbai bombings or any other terrorist attacks in any other country, since someone as stupid as her isn’t going to have a clue about what goes on outside of her own little world, which is presumably made up of colours, shapes, and the occasional noise (TM Charlie Brooker).
Although this girl deserves absolutely no credit whatsoever – as she was clearly talking about September 11 – there WERE terrorist attacks on 7/11 in 2006, the Mumbai train bombings.
Seven blasts in 11 minutes killed more than 200 people. Too bad she didn’t know this to try and make a recover…
Alysha, i hate to break it to you, but Lisa is MAKING FUN OF YOU.
on another topic, what is up with half of australia calling “7/11″s “delis” and the other half caling them “corner shops”? I personlly don’t get that. btw, is that what you lot call them? 7/11? i did not know that. can we not have one name for everything? that would make my life so much eaiser.
7Eleven is a brand. You can’t just go around calling every deli or corner shop a 7Eleven, particularly if they are not on a corner. That would be like calling every fast food joint a McDonalds, when in reality, only 95% of them are McDonalds. I wish we had 7Eleven in Perth.
Human beans are a reference to Roald Dahl’s The BFG.
The Big Friendly Giant, and all other giants, refer to us human beans.
And humans from different countries taste different – the flavors supposedly reflect the countries’ names and/or principal exports, eg. the people of Panama taste like hats, the Welsh taste like fish, Turks like turkey (of course), Swedes taste like Swedish meatballs… and apparently no giant hunts for “human beans” in Greece because they all taste like grease.
Americans are stupid, or at least feel that the only way to be better is by mixing the hell out of everything. I’m from the States, and it makes me sick when people here want to correct me when I say even 7 October
Leave it to the damn Britons to make everything all screwed up. Reversing the day and month, plus driving on the wrong side of the road is tearing humanity apart! Damn you all to a life under the rule of Tony Blair!
Brits go day/month/year – a clear and sesible progression. Yanks go month/day/year. Where’s the sense in that?
Who was the last country to change which side of the road they drive on and what did they change to? Oh, it was Samoa, and they changed to the British way. What’s so good about the British way? It’s much easier to grab your food at the drive through with your right hand, we don’t have shotguns and stage coaches anymore, dipshits.
What measurement system do the Yanks use? Imperial. Seriously people, get out of the fucking dark ages. Switch to metric and your Mars rover might actually work next time.
And don’t get me started on A4 versus Letter paper sizes. You guys are seriously retarded for pursuing Letter. Why? Well, it’s about the 1:root 2 ration. Look it up. Ltrs a pain in te arse. And you spell “Arse” as “Ass”. Now every time I abrreviate the word association it looks rude.
No wonder the world is planning to dump your currency, you make everything so ridiculously inconvenient.
Anti – Tristan you fucking rock! I hate the damn yanks they’re always so bloody arrogant and think they’re better at everything! I live on a different fucking continent and even I know Gordon Brown is Prime Minister and I’m not British either!
7/11 implies the Mumbai train bombings in 2006. And it’s 7/11 IF its 9/11. So she could be referring to that given that 9/11 happened 5 years prior to the post and 7/11 was actually in progession when Facebook was available.
