a decade is ten years. NO ONE STARTS COUNTING AT ZERO!

yet, everytime a year ending in 9 is finishing up we get "best of the decade" lists and all sorts of stupid end of decade crap. fucking moron people. 2010 is the last year of the first decade of the 2000's. simple as that. people are such morons. The next decade does not start until 2011.


rant over.

so i suppose you came out of yr mom's vagina already 1 year old, because you start counting at one. you were never zero years old for a whole year, that would be inconceivable. congratulations on yr superpower counting skills...

a decade can never be ten years old, because the instant it turns ten, it ends. and when you were 20, it was not the tenth year of your teenage years, that was when you were nineteen... think back, now.... i think you'll find that when you were 20 (ending in zero) you were in yr twenties.

have you really lost sight of all logic, mr. instigator?

Usage dictates definition.

Colossus just meant "statue" until the Colossus at Rhodes.

Do you realize that a billion in America and a billion in the UK are different numbers?

It's funny how we said almost exactly the same thing.

decade starts at 0 finishes at the end of nine which is the start of ten which the change of that time is and infintisimal nuremic digit of time

fuck yr thick... i thought you just figured it out.

jesus, man! how hard is it to see that only a lunatic would believe that their twenties started at 21 and lasted until 30, and that their thirties did not in fact begin until 31 but then had the benefit of lasting until 40.

now, i know that many 40 year olds will tell you that they are in their thirties, but they are lying, didn't you know that?
