Does drinking alone make you an alcoholic?

    How do you write your dates?

    I got a letter dated 4/3/05. I called the author and he mentioned something about March when the letter was written. Not April 3rd as I thought.

    Here in the U.S. we do Month/Day/Year. I think it maybe Day/Month/Year in Europe I believe.

    Is that official? I know my school does it that way, but in Florida I have seen it the other way around.

    I do month/day/year because that's how we do it in the US. I guess it goes hand in hand with us preferring to use April 27 over 27 April when we write out the months. ALthough I think day/month/year makes more sense when you are just doing numbers.

    Them here Europeans like going from smallest to biggest: dd/mm/year. Despicable.

    I personally prefer the mm/dd/year; it's easier to use. Especially when you have a list of several dozen dates, you just scroll your eyes down the months on the left instead of watching the middle intently.

    2005/28/04 also works.

    Edit: I had a teacher who used roman numerals for months. I found that to be rather neat.
