Results 1  50 of about 126,000 for "14th of March". In other languages : "On est le quatorze mars 2007." "Wir schreiben heute den vierzehnten MΓ€rz 2007." So writing 14. 3. 2007 is the most logical thing: the fourteenth day of the third month of the year 2007. Unfortunately, there is no 14th month, so there would never be a pi day (except in the year 4159, for example ; maybe already in 2041 some will write 3.1.41 but that's less recognizable...)

Most of the world use one of two representations for dates, the only logical one : "year month day" as used in Hungary, Japan and Sweden amongst others or the reverse "day month year".
The whole world speaks of a quantity by citing the biggest unit first :  length : 5 km 150 m or to use archaic length units 3 miles, 354 yards 1 foot and 5 inches ;  time : it is now (in Brussels) 15 hours, 20 minutes 56 seconds or 15:20:56 ;  numbers : 735 represents 7 hundreds, 3 tens and five units. Only the USA uses an totally illogical ordering of units for its dates, transposed to the numbering system it would have us write 357 for 7 hundreds, 3 tens and five units ! It is also AFAIK the last country not to use the metric system. There is something as the ISO (International Standards Organisation), it has the following standard for dates yyyymmdd [hh[:mm[:ss ... ]]]. Last fiddled with by S485122 on 20070314 at 14:49

Not quite, Liberia and Myanmar also don't use metric. (map of nonmetric countries)
And 537 is so much better?
