Tuesday, January 05, 2010 10:45:45 AM 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. ______________________________________

revdrdark "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, 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.
