From Mark Gongloff's most-recent piece in the Wall Street Journal:

If you happen to be awake at 1:02:03 a.m. ET on Wednesday, April 5, you might want to reflect on how rare that particular moment is. Or you might just want to get some sleep. On some digital clocks in the U.S., that precise second will be reflected as 01-02-03-04-05-06, something that doesn't happen all that often. If you want to celebrate the moment at a more reasonable hour, you can use Universal Time; 1:02 a.m. Universal Time comes at 9:02 p.m. ET.
Cool, huh?

In Europe they do the day first THEN the month, hence destroying the fragile moment that was 1:02:03 4-05-06.

Yet another reason why the EU must be bombed into oblivion.

Or... wait, I guess they'll have their "magic moment" on the 4th of May.

But still.
