    Add another 40kgs, you’re probably right.

    Actually I won both the logic and counting competitions, and I thank those who chose to participate.

    You’ve confused with the bloke who KNOWS that any particular decade must start with a one and ends with a zero.

    After nine comes 10, does it not?

    Have a quick read of some base mathematical theory and we’ll reconvene the discussion after that..

    So, 2011 never happened?

    This is like some warped version of The Matrix.

    I’ll do the same when you acknowledge that 2000 was the last year of the 20th century.

    oh dear lord. This is like a bar fight that has spilled onto the street - and now others are getting involved.

    2000 was the last year of the 20th century
    However, that does not mean the year 2000 was in the 90s!

    Actually, this is more akin to a schooll kid farting in class than any bar fight.

    So if 2000 was the last year of the 20th century...and we both agree there... it means the first year of the new one was 2001.

    Therefore, 2001, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09 and 2010 MUST be the first decade of the new millennium.

    Phew.

    I already mentioned that (when I brought up the Gregorian calendar)

    What i am referring to with the 1+1=1 is your example of a team winning its first premiership.

    Our numerical system works off a base10 system, which starts at zero.

    This also flows into how we refer to time now.. the 90s started in 1990.. the 1900’s (as distinct from the 20th century) started in 1900..

    Spot on.

    We were fortunate to win a premiership in 2010. If not, it would have been quite the low point. In every decade since Saints entered the first grade in 1921, we have qualified for a premiership decider aka grand final (or 'final' depending on the semis system).

    In 2010 we got in by the skin of our teeth.

    Now, here in the 20-teens... we have just three chances left.
    ......
    Edit: Sorry, I just realised I was talking football there. My apologies for taking the discussion off-topic.

    I pretend 2011 never happened, just like 2012, 13, 14 every year since then.
    Then on grand final day I shall whip out the 2010 dvd and pretend it's happening all over again.

    But qualifying for a grand final without winning one is kinda like taking your sister to the prom.
    Now granted some peoples sisters are better looking than others, but you still get no credit for pulling a good looking woman.

    OK...here we go.

    This is best definition I could find:

    The 21st century is the current century of the Anno Domini era or Common Era, in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. It began on January 1, 2001 and will end on December 31, 2100. It is the first century of the 3rd millennium. It is distinct from the century known as the 2000s which began on January 1, 2000 and will end on December 31, 2099.

    Can you see the distinction?

    When we refer to decades they are classified as 80's 90's 2000's etc. We are currently in the 2010's, which started in 2010.

    That doesn’t make one bit of sense.
