Ah, excellent point Daks. I honestly hadn't considered the the OP was non-American and would do the date wrong like the rest of the world ( ). And I'm sitting here now thinking of a couple other variations that could also be applied as well.
I think this all stems from the whole metric system problem anyway. We really need to get away from the whole archaic base 10/decimal thing anyway, it's so unnatural. Hexadecimal (base 16) is so much more natural to the human mind anyway and would solve many issues in the world.
