What Trilo said!

Aha! And don’t get me started... *goes right on talking* ...about the way we WRITE dates! Today is all good, but yesterday was 12-11-12 in the US, but 11-12-12 in Europe – which would have been a month too late here! And various other confusing combinations! And my computer insists on ranking dates with the year first, rather than last. Which makes sense!
Think about it…. Just try to find anything else that is ranked with the smallest unit first. 6 feet 3 inches. Pi = 3.14…. $1,325.40. And the biggie, the current time of 13:41:30! (1 PM, 41 minutes and 30 seconds.)
That’s why I write dates like this: 2012 December 12. So there!
