    Well given the upside-down folk in the Antipodes are already basking in the arbitrary construct that is '2017'...


    If you're reading this... congratulations, 2016 didn't kill you...

    I prefer to think of it as 12017 of the Human era.


    Good luck for the new year folks.

    Nope, It was 23:30 GMT that means it was a last ditch attempt by 2016 at extending his lead for the title 'dick year of the century'.

    It was probably a German phrase that meant 'can horribly maim and cripple you so for God's sake be careful,' but had no Anglicised equivalent, so some clever dick translated it literally.
