Until you want to sort by date order, then year, month, day makes sense.


Year month day makes sense[1], except that what they
appear to do (as far as I can tell from what happens when
I have to work on a computer with US locale), is
month year day. Why?

[1] And can be sorted easily by silly computers, which is why it's
   an ISO standard, rather than the more user friendly day month
   year.
