What do you think of those who are clebrating the new millennium starting in 2001?

A. The few, The proud, Those who can count.
B. Slowpokes, The odometer already rolled over.
C. They can't count! One K is 1024, so we don't reach Y2K until 2048.

i figure no matter what the results, it'll get a laugh.

Just because u can hear my music blasting across the house, doesn't mean that you can just walk in without knocking and expect me to have clothes on.

I know that 2001 is the new millenium because the ad years begin with 1 not 0 but how do you get Y2K is 2048. Y stands for year in that and I thought K ment 1000. I could be wrong but I dont know

i think you're all wrong. the dawn of the year 2000 was the start of the new millenium. the AD years started at 0000, so after 1 year had passed, it was 0001. after 2000 years it was 2000, therefore 1999 was the two-thousandth year which finished at 23:59:59 30th Dec 1999.

u just posted a damned "j" as your message!!, wait now its a single face, man u must be totally going out of your way here.

and its a plausable topic because tomorro is newyears eve, therefore some people think its the milennium and whatnot, u gonna say that all following "happy new year" posts are useless crap too, -10 for originality, so quiet yourself.

and in the words of guybrush "i wanted to make sure you'd feel comfortable with me"

Actually, we started on 1, not 0. Therefore Y2K is the year 2000 (count from to ten on your fingers; how many fingers (and thumbs) are up? Same applies to larger numbers)

That's the second chicken I've ever seen! What with me being a pirate and all. I don't see many chickens in my line of work.
What? Stop looking at me like that!
