in thread Perl 6 release date

I always thought y'all Europeans were wacky for doing YYYYMMDD.

We Americans do it that way too. There is a good reason for it. It sorts correctly.

Don't confuse this with the normal written formats. In the U.S. we write mm/dd/yyyy but in Europe they write it as dd/mm/yyyy which does seem to make some sense in a least-significant to most-significant sort of way.
