yes this is exactly what has always been the counter argument to the british way of day month year which is illogical.

no its not. we put them in the order they change. days change once every 24 hours, months change every 30 days and years change every 12 months. every other country puts them in that order either years first or days first.

100 possible years?

You can express 100 different number combinations from 00-99. I guess my wording is just off.

I love how people get all 						**********					 about this, as if it's an argument about english vs. metric units, when in actual fact it makes no 						*******					 difference at all. It's just different conventions.

"100 possible years"

I think he means

00 - 99

the last numbers being used for years, we don't spell it out 1993 just '93

No, its because of the order you say it

Month Day Year
i.e. today is May 24th 2013, or 05/24/13

In other countries its
24 de Mayo 2013 (or in that countries respective language), or 24/05/13

Oh.. well.. guess that kinda makes sence

Actually it's because one customary way to say it is "It's the Twenty-Fourth of May, 2013".

Either way, the European way is better.

MFW I said the date in the good order instead of making a sound argument...
User avatar #32 - fakereality (05/24/2013) [-]
I always just assumed that it's like that because we say a date in that order. We say 05/24/13 like May (05) 24th (24) 2013 (13).

Imagine if every country's language, customs, religion, and virtually everything else was exactly the same.
