    An off season fill in subject. Is it 2000 & 12, or Twenty-12?
    If we're talking about Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture, we don't say the 1000, 800 & 12 overture,we say Eighteen-12. We don't say the Titanic sunk in 1000, 900 & 12, we say Nineteen-12.
    Are you hip to my jive?
    So, by that rationale, why do we stumble through extra syllables when logic would tell us it's, Twenty-12. (20-12)
    Thank you for your patience.

    Man, what a dilemma. No wonder the Mayan's decided to call it quits this year. Poor little buggers must have been going crazy trying to work this out.

    May date back to the Roman Numerals System - 2012 = MMXII.
    Its an English language idiom that only appears once we are into a new decade of a century. No one said Twenty-One for 2001 etc.

    Following on this conundrum, why do analogue time pieces show four o'clock as IIII instead of the correct IV:huh:

    This topic leads directly to the subject of the biggest gap in our trophy cabinet: namely the year numbers in which we haven't yet won a comp. Regard the table below.

    1 - 2011
    2 - 1972
    3 - 1973
    4
    5
    6 - 1976, 1996
    7 - 1987
    8 - 1978, 2008
    9
    10

    Based on this information, it's obvious Toovey is focussing on developing our youngsters in 2013 in order to make a full-scale tilt at back-to-back titles in 2014 and 2015. We clearly wasted a bit of energy in 1996 and 2008, otherwise we'd be closer to the full set.

    And why are there not 13 moonths (4weeks X 13 = 52) instead of the 12 months we have? These are the issues the commission need to investigate.
