I hate the way Americans show their dates!!
A year is broken down into months
A month is broken into days
You break something down from the whole to the part and in order.
Therefore logically,to show a particular day, in a particular month, in a particular year you would expect the following abbreviated format:
ddmmyyyy (or yyyymmdd)
example 21st day of October in the year two thousand and eight would be
21102008 or 21-10-2008 or 21/10/2008.
But no the Yanks have to be illogical (a kind word from me) and put their dates in the form:
(why don't they go the whole hog and go for mmyyyydd?? LOL )
Are there any other countries that are that stu**d?
