What decade are we in?

The last decade was called the 'noughties' and the next one will be called the 'twenties'

Re: What decade are we in?

2011 is the start of the decade, not 2010. The reason being that there was no 0 BC

Me too, it's just as ridiculous as the "noughties", but just wait for the red-tops to start using it.

Re: What decade are we in?

Don't know about the decade, but could the year be the Wikipedia reference-linkelevenses? Then anytime is tea and cake time.

hmm, I heard these ideas for a good ten years.

Out of curiousity. Did you celebrate the new millenium in 2001?

Of course not, but it still doesn't make it right. The first day of the new millenium was Jan 1 2001. A lot of the confusion came about as a result of the media e.g. the Y2K millenium bug, Millenium Dome (and to think they actually had another year to build the wretched thing) etc..
