It makes absolutely no sense to put the month in front of the day in dates. Days form months and months form years. This is a LOGICAL, ASCENDING order.

Don't discuss. One side is clearly wrong.

as a canadian i've seen/used both to the point where it's so confusing that i just write out "September 11th, 2016"

11SEP2016 is the superior format.

i agree to put day/month/year in that order if we are talking about 11/9/2016 as numbers.

but if we're talking about September, 11, 2016, then the month goes first

so both are correct for the same reason.

Yes it does, because it narrows down the time frame significantly right off the bat. You can see the location of the date within the year immediately, as opposed to reading through a meaningless number that can exist in almost any month.

Despite the fact that going from D > M > Y is convenient and "in the right order", M > D > Y is more accurate and efficient.

The time of year is more vital than a day when discussing information.

"The last time I was there was the 20th"
What the fuck am I supposed to do with that?

"The last time I was there was June"

No 11-Sep-16 is the best format

It actually is

With the other two formats you can have confusion on dates like 01/02/16

base 12 + MDY = good for the every-day use of cretins who hate accuracy but need their mental maps filled in nice and vague

base 10 + DMY = good for people who want useful, accurate information that doesn't require pansy ass filler info

EDIT: seriously though, if you are to follow that logic at least go YMD

base 12 makes sense as a measurement system because it can be divided into halves, quarters and sixths whist retaining integers (think about what a carpenter would do)

base 10 can only be divided into halves whilst still remaining integer

I mean the year is the most important one anyway. No carbon dater gives a shit about the exact day. If someone says to me "september 11th" I know they're talking about the 11th of September, but it's not until they say "1973" that I know whether it's the important one or not.

Idk, usually (at least where i live) when saying a specific date aloud, such as a birthday, you will say something like "January 27th" instead of "The 27th of January"

that's how I justify it.

This is pedantic bullshit, but ok, whatever.

In America no one really gives dates as like "the 11th of September." We say "September 11th." Ergo, it makes sense to put the month first.
I guess maybe in Ye Olde Engerland people say "the 11th of September," 'cuz they feel like everything needs to be very ornate & formal, on account of they all think they are Shakespeare or some bullshit -- but it's like, dude it's 2016, fuck off.

I know in French they give the day first, so maybe it makes sense if you're on the Continent, but it sounds dumb & clumsy over here.

Ah yes, Shakespeare, the ornate and formal writer who embellishes his plays with Your Mum jokes

Honestly though I consider MDY a disaster in a formal/academic setting, in a local, oral context it's far more practical
