Here's a very UN-scientific question and answer to start the new year.
Are we ready to bury the need to call a year this century Two-Thousand "something"?
Historic dates have always been Seventeen Seventy six (1776) not One Thousand, Seven Hundred and Seventy Six. Or Fourteen Ninety Two (1492), not One Thousand, Four Hundred and Ninety Two.
So, what are YOU planning to call this year? Twenty-Ten or Two Thousand-Ten?
