    Clearly the Doctor plays a Death Knight and traveled to the future to buff them.

    In a massive amounts of data (see DB) you want to sort by year, month, date, as to easily see a timeline.

    Well... At least they drive in the correct side of the road, lol.

    Like many other said before me, its just a computer bug related to local culture.

    I prefer the military format:

    "20 May 13" = the 20th of May, 2013.

    I'm gonna take a guess that a result bringing up both an eu and us forum message somehow messes it up.

    Get outta here with your logic and common sense. I want time travel.

    european would be day/month/year (increasing duration), american would be month/day/year (how you would read it in conversation) but i dont think ive ever seen year/month/day
    At work we timestamp everything in a year-month-day format because it makes it super simple to sort by year whenever we need to go through old logs.

    So 2013-05-20, 2012-01-15, etc.

    Pretty much this. America does their dates the wrong way around, so to them it's the tenth month of the first day, rather than the tenth day of the first month.

    There's many ways to write a date's format, and doesn't mean one is being written the wrong way over the other.

    My system clock reads 2013-05-20 on a Swedish Windows 7.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    military format is yyyymmdd as 20130520. Did you even go to MEPS? lol.
