Nope not the terrorist attacks, but the date format.
I was reading http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/1733455.cms and the first thing I noticed was that Times has picked up the habit if numbering events. “Delhi recalls 29/10, goes on high alert” is the title. Now if these idiots just copy the 9/11 format then you will run out of unique names. Come on. Stop copying and start being creative.
