Happy New Year To All Five Of You!

Post by Amskeptic » Tue Dec 31, 2019 10:42 pm

Happy 2020! That is a crazy number for an old guy born in 1959. I never imagined.

New decade! I think we are all well enough informed now to see that we need to work on our public common and our common good. There is no escape, folks. The world is getting more crowded and, like any complex system, it needs greater synchronization and regimentation/regulation.

We also might ask ourselves more pointedly what sort of world we want to leave for the coming generations.

Meanwhile! New Decade! New Year! New Adventures!

Happy New Year everyone!
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue, I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace. Where never lark, or even eagle flew. And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod, The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

That's right, we usually count from 1 - 10, not 0 - 9.

Discussion on PBS thrashed this one out. In the calendar numbering arena, "0" to "9" is the system.
Happy New Decade.

Yeah, one could split mathematical hairs here, but the new millennium has to have started in 2000, not 2001.
When thousands of people believe a made-up story for a month, we call it fake news. When a billion people believe a made-up story for a thousand years, we call it a religion.

Well - who can argue with PBS?!

So, 1979 was both the final year of the Bay Window Bus AND the end of the 1970’s.

Happy 2020’s to all (X) of you!
