    10 years ago, it was one big commodity.
    Then again, so was 1/1/1, 2/2/2, 3/3/3 etc.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    between 2000 and 2009 we had thoose glasses with the year on them..
    in 2011 they still made thoose glasses, they managed to find a way to put the second eye... but it's not the same...
    people will find a way to bend and twist rules so certain dates\days are still a thing..

    and i swear that muricans keep using the month/day/year standard just so they have a 4/20 day

    That's because it makes sense. People say "April 20th" , not "the 20th of April" (unless they're being formal). It's too cumbersome. Also, we're not the only country that celebrates Hitler's birth.

    Why not use Year/Month/Day then? We use it in Hungary, and honestly, I think it's the most efficient/logical way to say it, and not just because I'm Hungarian.

    makes sence in your established language,
    people are always shortening stuff for example "gimme dat" "hru" "4eva" etc.. saying "20th of april" is not a big deal, you would find a way of not making it "cumbersome"..
    however it doesn't make sence with numbers or how things are arranged...
    when people write a date for example "6/7" i always get confused and need to know if that's american or ROW date...

    in norwegian you say "den 20 april" "the 20th of april". we can also say "four and thirty" instead of "thirty-four"

    'Four and Thirty' is actually also correct in 1700s English, actually.
