The record date is meaningless concerning splits. Don't concern yourself with the terminology. It's simply an "accounting term" with the company. The split will take care of itself. There is nothing to ever worry about. In its very simplest form, assume a stock is trading around $100 and is to split 2-1. If you pay $100 for the stock AND you still hold it when it actually splits, (ie, when it starts trading at about $50 --assuming it hasn't fallen in price dramatically), then you can be assured that you will receive the "extra" shares. However, if you pay $50 for the stock, then you know that the shares have already split.
You're not very bright. Split date is extremely important to new investors and current investors. Maybe you better rethink you whacky position, since it makes you look like a third grader with your zipper open.
