stage7: that date format makes no sense for humans. Yes, for computers doing sorting, but for humans? None at all.

...then again, xkcd is from a country that also uses 12 hour clocks, imperial units, the wrong voltage level and the wrong kind of football. so don't believe everything he says.

Most devices / adapters / wall-warts anymore are capable of handling the differences between US and foreign power. And not everything is imperial. You can get 1 and 2 liters bottles of soda. (Doctors also measure your weight in kilograms.)
...and i didn't even mention the wrong kind of dubstep!

there's a right kind of dubstep?

If there is, it's clearly not the kind of dubstep my flatmate blows through the house every day...

A few months back the whole message would fit easily on that t-shirt.

Forget pounds off. If you want to lose weight, you should migrate pouet.

gargaj: it makes no sense to start with the least important piece of data - the year. If you need a date, the most important part is the day. Then the month. Then the year. Why? Because most likely the thing you're looking identify the date of is happening sooner rather than later, so the day is the most important part.

Again: for computers and databases and things that count automatically, year-month-day is more logical, but for people? Day-month-year. The most important part first, then the second most important, then the least important.

But you're already down in the gutter when you're trying to _identify_, YMD doesn't need that whole phase because it's already in logical descending order. What you call "importance" is really just personal preference because unfortunately that's what you got used to.

What Gargaj said.

I prefer YYYY-MM-DD format.
And In my country(Japan), people use YYYY-MM-DD format.

When I want to know how a given date is far from now, year is most important, and month is next important.

When you specify a point in large set, specifying from broad scale to narrow scale would be more intuitive than specifying from narrow scale to broad scale.
