Let's throw out this scenario.... You are captured and for months stuck in a box so when let out, you have no idea of place or time.

You are then presented with some life saving goods. Say maybe coats to keep warm, more water for excessive heat issues... you get the drift... things that can help you survive different cycles of the year.

You are then allowed to select just certain items before being left out of the box (not all) to survive so what do you want to know... the day or the month?

What do you want to know.... to help you select? the day of the month or the bloody month!

Who gives a flip, other than on maybe paydays (hahaha) if we are 1 through 31... this will not save your butt...

So get the important # out there 1st.

But the #1 through #12 may save your buttocks. #13 through #31 do me no good... other than saying I popped out of a momma on a certain day.

Most other forums I visit ask for Month, Day, Year... QL Forum appears to ask Day, Month, Year.

Damn backwards people.

:P

Number systems generally go from largest to smallerst or sometimes - smallest to largest - so I see no reason why the date should not be recorded the same way - it makes sense numerically. To write the date as mm/dd/yyyy is partially backwards. If you want an even bigger vindication - RTC registers for most time keeping chips view the date in the day / month / year order. :P ;)

3 countries are NOT metric. America is one.

The only countries that use the MM/DD/YYYY system are the US, the Philippines, Palau, Canada, and Micronesia.
