If we were talking millennia, sure. - Shortpacked!
If we were talking millennia, sure.| Shortpacked!: Oh, right, there was a comic.
But I was busy.
And apparently since this has become a Thing, have an official definition:decade
1. a period of ten years: the three decades from 1776 to 1806.2. a period of ten years beginning with a year whose last digit is zero: the decade of the 1980s.
3. a group, set, or series of ten.
Unless he was huffing paint!

You went too far Willis
You kinda ruined the magic of that scene.
Sometimes you've got to leave well enough alone.
It's not like you're going to make a joke about the famous "rain" scene from Walky.
Re: You went too far Willis
Uh, he's made fun of it several times.

Indeed. And while we're at it, "the 1900s" is not the same as "the 20th Century". Two different conventions,
overlap of 99 years. The 00's falls into the former style.
WALKY'S LOVE OF THE HEATHEN YEAR 0 IS AN OFFENSE AGAINST GOD.
0 WAS INVENTED BY MUSLIMS.
Hindus, but aside from that I agree entirely. This is still the Noughties.
Well, according to the dictionary then, the first decade AD was short a year. Go dictionary!

Well, no. The "aught-aught-aughties", to make up an ugly term, were short a year (1-9). The first decade AD was not (1-10). And if one wants to say that the two-hundred-first decade AD is not yet over, they would be entirely correct. But no one ever says "the 201st decade AD", because it is not a thing that is said or noticed or commemorated.
No, not this argument again

How do you all know there was no year 0? Were you there?

Ok, I was wondering this way back when the original comic appeared.
Is Ronnie's disappearance a reference/homage to how Starbuck disappeared in BSG?
|Date:||January 2nd, 2010 07:46 am (UTC)|| |
Of course not. It's a reference to when they did it in the fifth season of Angel. :P

When does the Decade start
There is No Year Zero.

Re: When does the Decade start
Sure there was. There was a year when people started making calenders, that's year 1. The year before that, or, hell, the entire 4.5 billion years before that, was the year 0. It's called Retcon.

While watching season 8 of smallville, I was pretty impressed by how much better it was than I had gotten used to. I was thinking about leaving a comment about how awesome it was. THEN, I watched the last episode. They spent all that time building up Doomsday, then THAT? He even looked great, just like the comic. I don't want to say too much because I'm sure someone here hasn't seen it, but I seriously thought they were screwing with us. I'm watching the first episode of season 9 right now, so I don't know if they've made good somehow, but it would be pretty hard.
Oh, and it's become an alumni party for battlestar, huh?

wait wait wait
Seriously? Doomsday, in Smallville?
I think I find that more preposterous than Borg in the prequel Star Trek series Enterprise.
I'm calling shenanigans on you WB! You hear me? Shenanigans!
