    Savageduck Guest twenty eleven.
    Certainly general US notation is Month-Day-Year. Hence, April the
    First, 2001, vs. The First of April 2011. However US military date
    convention is Day-Month-Year, I believe this was to remove the conflict
    & confusion factor with our European Allies starting with WWI

    note that the century is not indicated!
    French Canadians use that style, it can be confusing when using both American
    and Canadian dates... I personally hate the 'all number' system, and prefer the
    inclusion of the month as letters. Apl 1 is much clearer.

    I get happy birthday greetings all the time in April, but my birthday is in

    It's actually not how I say it. First of April is how I say it.
    You've been trained to say it that way because you write it back
    to front so it appears to be more natural. But it isn't logical.
    LOL - 1911 is about where the imperial units of measurements of
    distance, force etc are still being used too. It's actually 2011
    so let's go metric finally guys. :)
    Exactly. It's logical.

    Even if not indicated,,, why the "nineteen" considering we
    are currently working in the twenty first century?

    ....or perhaps the "nineteen eleven" was the time?
    Aah! December 4, 19xx.

    Quite embarrassing when that sort of thing happens.

    It is also good to note that since the inception of NATO and SEATO, the
    US military has also adopted the metric system. Sometimes
    standardization works.

    I now understand that I am wearing the NOOB Jersey for 2011........

    Thanks to an email I just read yesterday.........

    That's OK, I've worn the NOOB colors before. I am man enough to stand
    up tall and straight and accept that I fell for it.

    LOL Thanks guys. So does this mean I have to buy the next round too?

    A better question is why do the English say it that way. Most other
    countries in Europe say, (direct translation) "First April, 2011"
