Happy New Year; geez, I wasn't even thinking about it. Suppose I'll be up past midnight, Christmas break and all. I usually need a snack around 1 AM.

2010. Already?

The final seconds of 2009 have ticked away and IMo new years eve is drastically overrated. It's 12:00 at night, Im buzzed from too much caffine, the pizza's gone, there's nothing to do... (nobodies online) *sighs*
Oh well, looking forward to 2010, it should be fun..
Happy new year!
EDIT: I hate new year. I just spent an hour and a half playing online halo 3 with some diehards who left me out on their plan for world domination...Now my eyes burn... blink

Seconded. My New Years Eve consisted of turkey, cake and a whole lot of things that go boom. As soon as the clock ticked 00.00 the whole neighborhood lit up like WW3. twisted

Happy New Year everyone!

The only "friend" that was on was ben3308 and he was busy playing l4d2 or watching netflix. I think DV was on too but he was probably playing MW2... I was outta luck.
Anyway, 2010 has been rather disappointing so far, nothing much has really happened... wink I was kinda hoping FXhome would announce their latest product at midnight or something too but...

You thought I meant "friends to play online games with" instead of "friends to actually hang out with so your new years eve isn't so boring"? How sad...

Having friends isn't the problem. I know a couple great guys. One of them was outta town for the holidays, and 1 lived 2 far away and the rest couldn't make it. Believe me I would have loved to have em over. I appreciate all of your concern over my social interaction.
Also, Rody Polis, what do u plan to major in?

Sat on the beach and launched roman candles at each other, you know, the kind of stuff you watch on youtube and call people idiots for. In fact we didn't even realize it was 2010 yet until 10 minutes after midnight lol. Fun stuff, Happy New Years!

BTW, do you pronounce it two thousand and ten, two thouasnd ten, or twenty ten. I use twenty ten. It's a nice change

Haha, I swear I do this every year. I'm always too busy doing something else [drinking] to pay attention to the ball dropping. Doesn't really make a difference though, it's all good. Someday I hope to be in NY for the ball though, that would be sweet. Maybe 2012.

And I say it twenty ten. Sounds more like the future that way.

Twenty-ten is the grammatically correct way to say it, because that's how we pronounce every other century.

Yeah, but that's not going to stop every idiot from saying "two thousand and ten", which they will.

...Two thousand ten sounds much more impressive.
Might I also point out that "I was born in one thousand nine hundred and fifty-three" probably was the correct way to say it. 64 AD would not be said Oh Oh Sixty-Four, neither would 1776 be said Seventeen Seventy Six. It's just easier to say. (1776, that is.) So it's a matter of whether you base your grammar on consistency or actual correctness or just what's easier. At least, that's how it seems to me.
I'm not claiming either is correct--Heaven knows I'm no English professor--but I'm probably going to say "two thousand ten".

wink I'm going to get negged Oh Oh One Two times.

I'm not sure what point you're making but where on earth have you been living that the year 1776 isn't referred to as Seventeen seventy six? Presumably the same place that it seems logical to routinely cobble a handful of extra zeros onto the start of any number with less than 4 digits.

Well, that's kind of what I said. 1776 is referred to as Seventeen Seventy Six. But if we're becoming sticklers for perfection, I'm pretty sure it shouldn't be said that way. Because it was the year One Thousand Seven Hundred Seventy Six. I'm just saying; it's not that I give a darn one way or the other.

The reason Twenty Oh Oh (or whatever) is correct: it comes after Nineteen Ninety Nine.
The reason Two Thousand is correct: it is referring to the two thousandth year AD, not the twentieth.

See, it's not that I care. I'm just lip-flappin'. Not a matter of international concern.

It think it'll really be a mind trip once we get to 2020+. Just to say that we're living during the 20's or 30's is trippy sounding.

What? This doesn't make a lick of sense. No one has ever said "One thousand seven hundred and seventy six." MAYBE, just MAYBE people said it like that back when the years were 1000-1099, but I'm pretty sure they didn't count the years the same way we do now back then.

The only long-form for speaking or writing the number of the year would be "Seventeen Hundred Seventy Six", and no one says it like that anymore, because saying "Twenty Hundred" sounds weird. We say "Seventeen Seventy Six", and we said "Nineteen Ninety Nine", and we should say "Twenty ten."

Sorry, you're saying it wrong. Since years go by so slowly, there's no reasons to count it as a "One thousand seven hundred..." It makes much more sense to count is as 17__ or 20__, because we count years as individual parts of a century, not of a millennia.

What's new year got to do with Halo being rubbish? wink


Anyway, I also joined the club of "people that completely missed midnight". In fact, pretty much the entire party I was at was rather distracted by cocktails.

Here's hoping everybody's 2010 is productive, enjoyable and safe (health-wise, not creativity-wise).

Here are some fine and inspiring words from Mr Neil Gaiman:
