The Decade (2000 - 2009) In Pictures/Icons [Pic]

Submitted by: fancylad 7 years ago in

You wouldn"t think you could encapsulate the last 10 years in pictures and icons, but you can--fairly accurately.

Decades end with TEN, not with nine. You count to ten, you start with one and end with ten. Why are these stupid newspeople saying the decade`s over? 2010 is the last year of the decade. 2000 was the last year of the 20th century. twenty hundred=2000.

"frikkin retards."

I love it when people are so wrong and think they`re so right. They really don`t look too smart. I`m not saying you`re totally wrong revdrdark, a decade could be any combination of ten years (1993-2002). Depending on who you talk to you could be right or you could be wrong. Before you get all high and mighty next time take 2 minutes and double check your knowledge.

Decade: A decade is a period of ten years. The word is derived (via French) from the Late Latin decadem which actually stands for ten days. The other words for spans of years also come from Latin: lustrum (5 years), century (100 years), millennium (1000 years). - Your Mom and good ol Wiki


Although any period of ten years is a decade,[1][2] a convenient and frequently referenced interval is based on the tens digit of the calendar year, as in using 1960s to represent the decade from 1960 to 1969.

If all I have in my pocket is a penny, it is the first penny of my first dollar.

The day I was born was the first day of the first year of my life, and I was one year old as soon as it was over. Same for Jesus, no zeroes involved.

OTOH, looking at the numbers as a counter, the first digit counts millenia, the second centuries, the third decades and the fourth years. Same for the mileage of your car or your power meter.

Stop nitpicking. Tolerate others. Party twice. ;-)

The A.D. system was devised before "origin 0 counting" was invented, and the starting year was accordingly numbered 1. So the 1st century was 1 to 100, the 2nd was 101 to 200, the 20th is 1901 to 2000... This is standard terminology no matter how much some of you may dislike it. However, "a" century or millenium is any span of 100 or 1000 years; so if you want to celebrate the end of "the century" or "the millenium", meaning 1900-1999 or 1000-1999, on December 31, 1999, you certainly can. It just isn`t the end of the "20th century A.D." or "2nd millennium A.D.". This would apply to decades as well.

Oh Jeepers not the old "when does the decade start?" debate again, has it been 10 years already since the last one!?

Don`t argue about it. A child begins life the moment it is born, it is a whole year old at its 1st birthday, 2 yrs old at its 2nd birthday, etc. The decade starts on 01Jan10 and ends on 31Dec19. EVERY decade ends on 9, not at the end of the entire year AFTER.

ok i just have one thing to say about this silly debate thing: society counts 0-9 to be the decade. its still 10 years, it still counts. you may think differently, both sides have good points. but society does recognize it that way. and i think everyone who disagrees, has the right to do so, but should keep it to themselves, celebrate the new millennium in 2001, and the new decade in 2011, thats fine, but dont try telling other people theyre wrong when they very well may not be (that goes for both sides) celebrate however youd like. but do recognize how the majority of the people think, and try to keep the rioting to a minimum. :) thanks for reading!

Actually, it has been a decade.

Let`s count!

2000 (1)
2001 (2)
2002 (3)
2003 (4)
2004 (5)
2005 (6)
2006 (7)
2007 (8)
2008 (9)
2009 (10)

Yay!!!

And yes, 2000 counts, because 1990 was part of the 90`s, not the 80`s.

They actually (for some reason) came out with "I love the New Millenium" on VH1. Sometime last year I think it was. I dont know why they did it before 2010 was over but...whatever.

Has anyone ever heard anyone talk about 1970 being part of the 60`s? When you hear "The 80`s", do you think 1990? No. Problem solved. Whether it`s correct or not, the decade ends on the last day of the year ending in 9.

And if you understand time at all, you have to have the year between 0 and 1, otherwise it doesnt make sense. Any commonly used numerical system starts at 0 then goes up 0.1,0.2... until it reaches 1. Why would people suddenly decide when creating the calendar think differently? They wouldn`t.

In my opinion, case closed. :)

"You`re looking at the time. 00:00:00 is the start of the new day. That first day is the first day of the first month of the first year of the new counting system. Or 1/1/1, not 1/1/0. My counting seems to work just fine, thank you."

1 year is defined as 365 days correct? How can one year elapse if you don`t start from a starting point?...... also 1/1/1 is misleading implying that one year has already passed its like us going from 1999 to 2001.

surely its the same as the millenium, dont know if thats spelt right, which ran from 1000-1999 and the new one being in 2000, hence the big celebration, and not 2001. so surely the decades are 0-9 not 1-10. Also, to be a pedant, 2000-2009 is still a decade as its a span of ten years in the same way 2005-2014 would be a decade.

"Absolute 100% fact that the millenium started 1/1/2001 and this decade ends 1/1/2011. Might not be pretty, but it`s mathematical fact in terms of time counting."

This is wrong in terms of counting and right in terms of the calendar.
Why do graphs start from 0 and not one if you have no money in your pocket do you say you have $1.00 or $0.00. 0 is the starting point, the origin if you do not include 0 in any time line you are wrong flat out if you start from one can you define anything less than one so the day 1 - 365 never existed, and time skipped from day -1 to day 366?

another explanation: when christ was born the first year started, and not year zero. there is no such thing as year zero. so the first decade was from 1 to the last day of 10. the second decade was from 11 to the last day of 20... and so on. got it?

We didn`t even start at the switch from BCE to CE. Our calender just picks up from there. A decade is ANY 10 years.

I for one, looking back on it, despise the last 10 years.

Socially, however, who cares? Going off the tens-column is much easier so we can call things seventies, eighties and what not. Turning 2 digits over on the calender is always a good reason to get excited.

You`re looking at the time. 00:00:00 is the start of the new day. That first day is the first day of the first month of the first year of the new counting system. Or 1/1/1, not 1/1/0. My counting seems to work just fine, thank you.

OK. Here`s the "final" word. It all comes down to ordinal or cardinal naming. Ordinal is the proper way of referring to Centuries and millennia, and therefore, in my opinion, decades as well. Under Ordinal naming, my logic holds. The current Decade is 2001-2010.

Cardinal is, however, more commonly used to refer to Decades, and was used in the 1999-2000 New Year to refer to the new millennium.

So, I guess we`ll have to agree to disagree.

2000 to 2009 is not a decade. the current decade started on 01/01/2001 and ends on 12/31/2010.

It`s really very simple, people. If we were to start using a new calendar, and start counting our years over again, would we start from 0 or 1? 1. The first year under the new calendar would be 1. So the first decade would be years 1 to 10. There would be no year 0. There is no year 0 for us now. There`s 1 BCE, and 1 CE. No 0. So, our decades run from years ending 1 to ending in 0, such as 81-90, 91-00, 01-10. Centuries: 01-99, as in 1901-2000, 2001-2100. Milena: 001-999, as in 1001-2000, 2001-3000. The 21st century started on 1/1/2001, not 1/1/2000.

Nif, age is different. When you`re "0 years old", you`re in your first year. Year 1 means your 0 years old.

MidniteRun, sorry to say it, but your logic is flawed. I am saying that we still are in the first decade of this century. You can`t prove me wrong about being in the first decade just by saying we`re in the second one.

The decade starts on the 0 end on the last day of the 9 like how the 90`s include 90-99 problem is the Gregorian calendar which is pretty much the universal calendar does not include a year 0 which make no frigging sense we went from year one B.C. to year one A.D. .... When we all follow the calendar of someone who cant count were all wrong. According to this calendars logic decades go from 1-10 which is counter intuitive and in illogical.

Nope, you`re wrong.

By your logic we are still in the previous decade, which we aren`t.

The last decade began on January 1st 2000 and ended on 31st December 2009.

The current decade began January 1st 2010 and will end 31st December 2019.

"Just for the record, The Decade is 2001-2010, not 2000-2009. Any 10 years could be a decade, but The Decade, as it`s meant to be used year, is 2001-2010.

Think about it. The first year of anything would be year 1, not year 0."

This seemed strange, but after looking it up I guess it makes sense.

So the decade of the 90`s should include the year 2000 by that logic. What are you even saying?
