Because fuck logic, that's why.

You're looking at it wrong.
31st of April.
April 31st.
There are less words in the second example making it more efficient. It takes less time to say and time is money!

So which of those formats would you use when writing a cheque (check) to a charity?

You're the one looking at it wrong. Nobody here writes "31st of April", we don't use ordinals.
We say "31 April". Therefore that's the most efficient one. Cool

Edit: Also, in documentation the YYYY-MM-DD standard is used, for ordering purposes.

I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be spelled Czech.

It's the perfect day to watch the film PI, because why not, embrace the day instead of missing it entirely due to strange month dating systems. You're also missing out on MOLE day; just a sad existence for all. What makes up for that, selfishly awarded "namedays?" balderdash.

I'll celebrate on the 31st of April.

So you won't be celebrating it at all, April doesn't have 31 days.

I believe it's only 30.

Awwww, Moms! You ruined it!

I was trying to get him to admit to writing bad cheques/checks/Czechs to charities.

In fact, Druid, I thought you were side-stepping the trap by blaming your wife.

Foiled again. I think I'd have gotten away with it if it wasn't for that pesky Moms.

Weeping

Wait wait wait a minute. Your post that I quoted was the first reply. Before dd jumped into the thread.

I think you just thought you were being clever...like a gotcha moment, but you just didn't think it through.

And you're usually sooooo smart that a bunch of people jumped on and "liked" what you wrote without doing any fact checking (or is that chequeing Consider )

Rather than take your comeuppance like a man you tried to delfect. Tongue
