First of all, if you're posting a date that's strictly numerical, it goes my MM/DD/YYYY (12/20/2012 is today for instance). The only appropriate time to put the day first is if you spell out the month, such as 21 December 2012

Secondly, there is no secondly....

Besides, who ever said time ends on 00:00 Mayan time? How does anyone know what time it WOULD be? Maybe it occurs at 08:33 am

Yeah? Well......................................why does most of the world's population choose to use time based on a Chistian faith (year is 2012, and anything before that was BC)? Riddle me that F***er!!!

what they are trying to say is that if the 21st is the end of the world, wouldn't the 22ed be the first day that the world didn't end.

your welcome you confused b*****ds!

Apparently you Americans aren't big on mathematics (Fahrenheit... wtf?), and more specifically orders of magnitude. You seem to agree that values increase from left to right on a numeric axis, and that hours should be followed by minutes and then seconds, but where most countries will apply that logic to their date format, for some reason you'll place first the component that is actually second in order of magnitude. This baffles me.
The more you say 'epic' the less it means.

Personally I prefer the DD/MM/YYYY format, but I would think someone just did Word/#/# for some reason, I'm probably wrong but whatever.

Nothing gets resolved here, just argued to the point of getting closed or until everyone forgets about it. Then it resurfaces in a new thread, eventually.

Nah, we're bound to come to some sort of solution or agreement eventually. And I dunno why, but there's just something about this thread that feels right.

Well of course it doesn't get resolved—your country still refuses to adopt the logical date format.

If you were talking to me, then I don't know what you're talking about because, as far as I know, Canadians use DD/MM/YY(YY). I know I sure do.

lol

there are only 12 months
there can be up to 31 days

placing first the number with the least amount of things it represents seems more logical. And it looks way better.

I'll be honest, I obviously don't believe that there's some astrological event that will change the world tomorrow, however I am a bit worried that there will be dumbasses in some Jim Jones-esque cult that will try and go on some killing spree or something because of the prophecy.

Apparently, you're just stupid.

By your logic, YOU write the date wrong and so do we, it should be YY/MM/DD according to what you just said. If the hours (the biggest), are followed by minutes (middle), followed by seconds (smallest), shouldn't the date be years (biggest), months (middle), days (smallest)?

YYYY/MM/DD is the international standard date notation and what we should use (and what is already commonly used in Asia).

12/21/12 is like saying "December 21st, 2012."

21/12/12 is like saying "21st of December, 2012"


This is exactly the same as debating whether it's "color" or "colour." They both mean the same thing & are equally valid.
