       Is that November 3 of 2019 or March 19 of 2011 or 11 March 2019?  
[please excuse the typo in the earlier response]

       The English still use stones as a unit of mass, and most of the 
US still steadfastly refuses to seriously consider metrication or  ISO 
8601.  I know an architect in the US, who has worked on several 
different projects every year for the past 40 years only one of which 
has been in metric units.

        Binary, octal or hex is superior to decimal, except for the fact 
that most humans have 10 digits on hands and feet.  And decimal is 
vastly superior to arithmetic in mixed bases, e.g., adding miles, rods, 
yards, feet, inches, and 64ths.
