I was a bigger fan of 8/9/10, but this is kind of cool also.

Happy November 10th?

Looking forward to it!

"In the year 1582, there was no Oct. 11 in Italy"

If you have a Linux system (or any Unix or Unix-like system), try "cal 9 1752" from the command line.

You assume it's arbitrary. It's entirely possible that it lines up with something of great significance. But unlikely.

Don't you mean 11/10/12, unless you are talking about the retarded middle-endian American date system which really needs to be scrapped. I mean seriously. And don't give me the 'pronunciation' excuse, everyone says '4th July', not 'July 4th'. Just fix it.

You're a moron. Everyone says 'The 4th of July' because it's the name of the holiday. No one says '10th February,' or '21st June.'

I don't mind if other people write it differently, but you don't see me running around trying to get people to adopt my system now, do ya?

It's a middle-endian format, thus it makes no logical sense. The problem is the rest of the world does it the way that makes sense (dd-mm-yyyy) or even more sense (yyyy-mm-dd). Anyone who has to deal with parsing dates in a professional sense then doesn't know if the first number is the day or the month.

It's the equivalent of 1,354,203 being 354 million 1 thousand and 354. Tell me that would make sense.

The international standard is DAY-MON-YYYY, as in:

11-OCT-2012 or 11-10-2012. But if you are a real geek, you will prefer the old mainframe format of 20121011

Well, without going back to wiki to double check, I'm going to say that the two red countries are Saudi Arabia and the Philippines, and they use DMY in their native tongue and MDY in English.

Oh, and FirstNationalBastard: Our method of writing dates blows. Accept it.

I'm still thinking that he was trolling with that. I mean, who could possibly seriously suggest that MDY is a logical date format?
