Here is a lightweight thread that everyone can throw there two cents into.
I don't care if there was no year zero. I just short change the first century and say it was 99 years long. I say every century starts with "00." Like 1800, 1900, and 2000.
Maybe I am in the minority. I especially argue this point because I like 20th century classical music and I say that the 20th century lasted from 1900-1999. This century began at 2000.
O.K. that's my two cents. Now I suppose everyone is going to tell me I am wrong.
