Dates

9/7/11.  9th July right?  Yes it would be anywhere else in the world but not here in the US of A.  For some unimaginable reason the US switch the Month and Day round.

Trying to work with US date formats is like learning a new language. I’d love to know how this zany trend started.  I bet it was down to an admin error on Ellis Island or something similar.

Yes. saying 9/11 sounds `cool` but please Americans – please use the same date format as the rest of the world.  You just look silly putting the numbers the wrong way round!
