Actually, I believe that the new decade started on 2001, so this would be a new decade. It's because there is no year 0, that calendar or w/e you want to call it started with year 1, I believe.

This was the thing that historians or w/e were sort of quietly saying at the turn of 2000, that the new millenium didn't actually start until 2001.

every year is the start of a new decade. who says they have to be mutually exclusive? and if we start referring to how the term decade is usually used in exclusive terms, i guess it's fair to say each decade starts with ---0 as this is what most people use and there is no scientific or a priori correct starting point.

wait, I get the logic but... question.

did 1980 not happen in the 80's? because it was part of the 70's decade?

I always assume the 80's were any year that took place...well... in the 80's...

Then why did we celebrate the end and beginning of the millennia at the 1999/2000 mark?

Because there are the unwashed masses who celebrate things normally.

Then there are nerds who just want to look clever and superior so argue to everyone that a decade starts at 1 rather than 0.

There is also a language difference. The 19th century is for example called "the 1800-age" (not a perfect translation but you get the idea) where I live.

No! 1990 was 1989 cloaked, he was just afk so the 90's wouldn't undock.

Its only called 19th cenury because rather than call the 0-99 AD period the 0th century, they called it the first. And after that it has forever irritated school children on tests.

Edit: Did 0 exist as a number at time of creation of this term? Curious.

Idk, can link wikipedia all you'd like. To me 1990 was in the 90's, 2000 not in the 1900's.

Women do this to hide their fat asses. Men do it to tell the world they're not really men at all.
