Default Date format you follow

There are a lot of them that its so confusing. D:

Just wondering, what date format do you observe? I'll post 3 of the most encountered ones, in my opinion but there will be an "other" option as well.

/votes MM/DD/YYYY

Most sea [mostly? or probably other asian countries] uses

dd/mm/yyyy or dd/mm/yy format.
So today is 27/11/2008 or 27th November, 2008.

MM/DD/YYYY or MM/DD/YY

Let's take Thanksgiving '08.

Sounding it out in my head, the way I'd say or write the date alphanumerically would be November 27th, 2008.

So, along the lines of November 27, 2008, in my head month comes before day. 11/27/2008 or 11/27/08.

The confusion comes when I stumble upon a DD/MM/YYYY (DD/MM/YY) situation. If I were to make any sense of that in my head, it would have to be me thinking "The 27th of November in the year 2008." Now, when the two formats are used interchangeably, unless one of the first two sections exceeds 12, I'm at a loss without any other form of context. Of course, I never knew that this was predominantly a SEA sort of thing. Guess I learn something new everyday. =/

I thought the DD/MM/YYYY was also a Euro thing, then I can see the MM/DD/YYYY being another imperialistic feature that the US has introduced, like the pounds and miles.

I use MM/DD/YY(YY) all the time, so it cofuses me when I see DD/MM/YY, espcially on food expiration date, since sometimes they are hard to make out the numbers in the first place.
