Thank you for this public service announcement. I shall go forth and say TWENTY-TEN.
I'm bored. Wait until the all the pedants here get a hold of the thread.
twenty ten, two thousand ten. Meh, who gives a flying ****.
I prefer to say the twenty O Ten!
Meh... either way is fine.... I say two thousand ten... but I have said twenty ten... I mean.... erm, it's just... watcha call it... same easiness...
unlike saying 1200.... saying "twelve hundreds" is easier than saying "one thousand two hundreds".
My friends and I had a discussion about this last night. BBC said young people say twenty ten, older people say two thousand and ten. I say two thousand and ten.
I bet the dudes arguing over when a decade begins and ends will have a field day in here.
My decades, like my years, begin and end when I say they do.
So what were we supposed to call the past nine years? twenty o' nine? twenty o' three? No. We called those years two thousand four, two thousand seven. Did we call 1905 nineteen thousand five or nineteen o' five? It changes sometimes, it doesn't matter what we called the years decades ago.
I'm tired of your threads where you try and present your thoughts as facts, we don't need a new Tallest Skil.
Thats some tough love!
When I kick ass, I break the tailbone.
According to Electronic Arts, it is simply "10". January 1st, 10.
I heard a lady on the radio say it as "Twenty-one-zero"
Wrong, right now in California it is 2009.
I was going to call 2010 something more exciting, like 2012, after the movie with the Adam Lambert smash hit song.
Didn't we make that mistake once before?
Yes, but now it's the next generation's problem.
2K10,20-10,2010 in the end is the same year
Who cares how it's said, we're all going to die in 2012 anyways
I'm calling it "oh-ten". People raise their eyebrows but know what I mean. Just the reaction I'm looking for!
Hmmm... maybe 2.01K would be even better.
Just refer to it - in a couple of hours time - as 'this year'. Until then, it's 'next year'. Nice and simple.
isn't it 20X? and henceforth all years following will be 20X.1, 20X.2, 20Panther, 20Tiger, 20Leopard, 20SnowLeopard...
There are far too many ruining our language with stylistic abbreviations, acronyms, and other linguistic mechanisms to shorten our wonderful way of communication. Simply because some nut says that something is "easier, faster, and shorter" does not make it right! When the year two-thousand and nine passes to the year two-thousand and ten this evening we need to make an effort not to bow to the politically-correct metaphors, abbreviations, acronyms and give the time and date the right accord of pronunciation...
Imagine if we keep saying "two thousand" as the prefix -- that means when we hit "2021", we're going to be putting wayyy too many syllables in there.
It should be "twenty twenty one", or in the case of this year: "twenty ten".
Jesus Christ on a bicycle,I never thought I'd live to see the day I agreed with IntheNet on anything at all,fantabulous.
