Because you can sort on it.

And the date string will be valid for the next 7977 years.

Last fiddled with by chalsall on 2013-03-11 at 23:28 Reason: Make a mistake. It's only valid for 7977 years, not 7978 years.

Might I inquire why it won't be valid for the next 7986 years?

Do speakers of British English actually refer to methamphetamines as "meths"? I suppose it would make sense given the whole "maths" thing, but I had never thought about it...

The mistake is more hilarious because of that edit . Last fiddled with by LaurV on 2013-03-12 at 03:38

No, this is what we British refer to as 'meths'
