    It was the 80's.

    I watched that ad all the time as a kid. Mainly because a rural Irish boy had no understanding of black stereotypes, and I liked the theme tune.

    I know I am a bit late. But the whole MM/DD/YYYY thing does make sense for English speakers. It is basically writing it numbers on how your write it properly in English as "Month, Day Year." But it does make sense but like in Japan it goes YY/MM/DD and the reason I put year as only two is because they use the year of reign of the current Emperor but that is because in Japanese you state year then month then date. Sadly I don't know enough European language stuff to see why they developed the DD/MM/YYYY and the YYYY/MM/DD.

    Because in Europe you would say "[day] of [month], [year]".

    For example, today is the 28th of April, 2010.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    This is not how you write it properly in English, it's how you write it properly in American.

    In English English, we say "First of May" rather than "May First", so we have DD/MM/YYYY.

    On a side note, I don't care for DarkWarrior's "we shouldn't be treating illegal immigrants on the NHS" arguments.

    I'm starting to worry about my mental health. No motivation, yet waking up early in the morning - those are signs of depression.

    Really?

    Hmmm.

    I always figured I didn't like sleeping till noon cause it felt like I was wasting the day.

    This is not how you write it properly in English, it's how you write it properly in American.

    Or English as we are taught in school. It isn't that Amurican is better, it is just how we write it. Welcome to world of differentiation of languages over time.

    In highschool one of my friends hunted black powder, usually kept a regular just in case (In case the dear was packing? I never understood that part).

    the difference in where month and date is obviously when you are writing like

    March 27th

    but when it's like, April 7th, that can get confusing.

    If someone's used to MM-DD, they could see 04-09 as "April 9th", but if they are used to DD-MM, they could see it as "September 4th".

    then, if a person only uses a two digit format for the year, that can get really confusing.

    09-04-10 can be "April 9th, 2010", or "September 4th, 2010", or "April 10th, 2009" or "October 4th, 2009" or...
