So 2009 is almost over. But did you guys realize that it's not just the end of the year we're counting down - it's also the end of the decade. So here's my predicament, how do we call this decade (2000-2009)? The naughts? The hundreds? Remember when someone says "I like 70's music, man" or "her outfit is sooo Eighties". It's kinda weird to say "I like 'hundreds' music, man". Dont'cha think so? ^^ So how do we call this decade?

I don't mean to offend you in any way, but I think your math is wrong. A decade is 10 yrs, from 2000 to 2009 it is only 9 years, the end of the decade would be new years a year from now, so luckily, you'll have another year to think about what you want to call this decade =)

Shot of wisdom is right, When counting your decades you count the first year as 2000, not 2001. Samething with 1990 instead of 1991, and so on. So we are infact starting a new decade in 2010

I see what you guys are saying. you're right. My math IS wrong. I apologize for that, and for the name...umm..depends on what you're focusing on? I mean like depends on what each person put attention to during the years. From which perspective are you looking at it?

The decade isn't truely over until the end of 2010. Though with a year to go I'm sure people will have their ideas on what to call it as unique as it may be. Though a lot has happened. From tragety, to war, to everything change sure has been on the top of the list. Though I wouldn't know what to really call it. Maybe by next year I'll start hearing things.

Good point, I hadn't really thought about until now. I'm not sure how this decade will be referred to, but maybe we can start a trend. I would nominate the double 00's as a moniker for the decade. Its the easiest to say, and makes the most sense. The hundreds or thousands just doesn't sound right.
