Simple Math

2 + 2 + 2 = 6

Hence the date.
However you write that.

anyone know why in foreign lands, not being the USA, they put the day first.

It makes more sense to me. Small-bigger-large. When you start over in one column, add one to the next. Like numbers, only backward.

In fact, if they asked me (which they didn't), I'd probably have suggested the format: YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS Nice and logical.

Yup. It's always day / month / year.

It's only odd foreign lands that is American, and that 53rd state, Canada, that get it all mixed up. Bless them.

Canada? Ours?

No. We swapped it with you back in the mid 80's when the UN was busy elsewhere. If I remember right, we got France. Just for the wine.

Hold on now. We never had France - that was the Germans. I didn't know when we helped take them from the Germans we got to keep them.

Besides, I've been to the Parlament Building in Victoria (capital of British Colubia) and there were pictures of your queen all over the place. Explain that one.

Aside: (Then again if one writes it out 2/22/2006 it would be 2+2+2+2 which of course does not equal six, but rather eight. So, possibly this whole mathematical foray is for not and cannot be true until 2008. Meet me back here in two years, everybody. We'll try his again.)

World and Grac are fighting over France. Boys, you shouldn't be touching that, you don't know where it's been.

i'm not canadian - but they do have good hockey matches up there!

As for France, all i want to know is why and who gave them credit for the 'french fry' - when American McDonald's has made them what they are.

World: I agree - year should be first, then month, then day. makes more sense. but since we weren't asked, i am going to stick with day then month. its far easier to say and read that way.

K-Sra: if you add them all, you get... 2+2+2+2+6 = 14. what does that mean?

Isn't it really 2+22+2006=2030, which in a suprise turn of fate is linked to the other Victoria (Google's first link for 2030).
