Dashes really shouldn't be used unless referring to iso8601 standard formatting, which in this case would be: 2016-03-14.

Slashes suggest division so should follow a consistent ordering: 14/3/16.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

But, if you want to say today is Fourteen March -- have at it. Just expect people to look at you oddly.

Ordinals, brother.

Today is the fourteenth of March.

Tomorrow it will be the Ides of March.

What's so hard to understand?

I agree completely with this. However, nobody is going to stop me from getting some pie (pizza for lunch) today)!

Please explain to the youngster that, on this planet, there are not 14 months in a year.

No

But pie is good! Can't we make an exception for pie?

But as if to knock me down, reality came around

Believe it or not, here in good ole germany we say "today is 14th (of) March." So today is 14.03.2016
On the other hand we also dont say "twenty four" but "four and twenty" Laughat

four and twenty is how many black birds got baked in a pi! So we're back where we started! at pi!
