New Year's Resolution Time!

I resolve to stop being so anal-retentive and snooty about when the decade ends. I know that there was no "zero" year, so new decades, centuries, and millennia should begin on the 1s, not 0-years, but there's something to be said for the important change actually starting when people need to change two or more digits when printing new calendars, and by most reckonings, 9 really is larger than 0, so it's the zero year that represents a bigger start.

But really, dude, who needs a calendar at all, and who gives a hoot what year or decade it is???!
