This is one case where America just has to roll over and accept the metric system. It's the metric system or go home. Oh yeah and as @hassun mentioned it's day/month/year. The other thing is just for crazy people.
It sure is difficult to write something out in the same manner you would speak it.
Well English isn't my native language so if it isn't grammatically correct or just poorly worded that's probably why. I apologize for using this forum and supporting the site. I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me.
He means most people (at least in the US) say it month/day/year, and not day/month/year. I don't know about the rest of the world, but July 3rd, 2014 rolls off the tongue much easier than 3rd of July, 2014.
At the same time, isn't your independence day called '4th of July'?
And the "it sure is difficult to write something out in the same manner you would speak it" argument rings hollow to me. Translated to English, we don't say "3rd of July, 2014" but simply "3 July 2014". It is like in the majority of European languages.
@mosaicm80: Damn near everyone is "new here" to me, I signed up a minute or so after launch...I feel old :/. I'm going to go and read some stuff about Bomb Should Have A Face to relive my wayward youth.
Hell yeah! Same here, hence why I managed to snag just my plain ass first name as my username haha
Whose history with the site is the longest you guys?!
@rvone: Are you new here? Jeff was trolling us with the question of whether BRAD AND VINNY worked for Giant Bomb back when the Wiki was just a twinkle in Dave Snider's eye. Trolling us about hires is a fucking TRADITION.
