I am a strong believer in an international date format:
2005.11.04
Year.Month.Day

which is structured exactly the same as how we all tell time:
09:40:27 (9:40am and 27 seconds)
Hour:Minute:Second

It's also nice that both of those formats sort properly on a computer.


If we depicted times the way dates were depicted, we'd have two kinds of digital watches with times like this:

Europe-- 27:40:09 (27 seconds, 40 minutes, 9 hours)
N.America-- 40:27:09 (40 minutes, 27 seconds, 9 hours)

Only slightly less confusing than Swatch Beat watches.

Hmm.. When writing out a date, do international folks not use "November 11, 2005"? Would the international folks write that as "2005, 11 November"? Or "2005, November 11".

The only reason "our" way makes sense to me, is that we write it and speak it as month/day/year.

I don't know that you could call it "our" way. In the military, that date would be 11 NOV 2005, which eliminates all guesswork.

According to International Standards Organization (ISO) standard 8601, the international standard date notation is:
YYYY-MM-DD.

Nope.

They use 11 November, 2005 in Britain.

Alas computers have no clue how to sort dates written like that and have to convert it back to an internal format.

We're decidedly international here in Sweden. 1974-12-16 is the way we write. "Written out" it becomes 16 december 1974 (with no capital "D" in my tounge ). In English I guess we could put a comma between december and 1974.

'Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'
I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

In the UK (and most of the rest of the world, I think) we also write it as we say it, but we say "see you on the 11th November" (often with an "of" between day and month). I do like the idea of Y:M:D, and use sometimes to avoid confusion, but generally still use D:M:Y, as that's the way my brain says it.

vs Swedish - we use capitals for the month and no comma after it, so today is the 7th June 2005.

The American non-ascending/non-descending order always has seemed weird. Anyone know how it ended up that way - you don't say mins secs, hours for time?

That’s because we just have to be different from the rest of the world.

I say, “I will see you on November the eleventh, two thousand five at about two o’clock in the afternoon.”

Yes, I forgot that, we'd say "Two thousand AND five" never "Two thousand five".

I think it ought to be twenty-oh-five. Long before this 2nd millennium actually came to be I had a feeling no one would ever say it in the same manner as 1901 to 1909 were spoken (in english, anyway).

Still made plenty of sense, to me, to say 20-oh-1, 20-oh-2, etc. Maybe even 20-hundred (for 2000), but saying it as "two thousand" was obviously determined years ahead of its time.

I wonder if the movie (or book) 2001: A Space Odyssey is why?

In any case, you could just about see that the something-hundred way of saying it was not going to be like the previous centuries.

How was/is 1005 A.D. spoken? Probably like it is now for 2005. It seems to be the lack of a 'hundred' number, so people immediately forego that and see only the 'thousand' number. I was a bit disappointed when people ignored the past 900 years, at least, and couldn't say 20-oh-1 like their grandparents had done for 1901.

Somehow I still keep thinking it'll revert back to that before twenty ten, mainly because we'll all definitely be saying twenty ten and not two thousand ten-- er... well... who knows?!

Sorry for this long-winded nonsense but ya'll started it! LOL

Life got easier for the French when 2000 rolled around.

1999 = Mille neuf cent quatre-vingts dix neuf. (literally one thousand, nine hundred, four score, ten and nine)
2000 = Deux Mille

1005 - it was probably pronounced completely differently at the time, but I say ten oh five, like in ten sixty six!

I want to know why we aren't talking about '05 and '07 in the same way that we talked about '95 and '97. What has changed??
