      I agree whole-heartedly. Simple is better.

      You're on to something here. Most of the years in this decade have been pronounced with one or more syllables than necessary.

      Although, it would have been kind of cool to have had the year 2000 be pronounced twenty-hundred.

      Mark McGuinness

      But Roger, I thought everyone in America said "Two thousand seven". (Not "Two thousand and seven".)

      You're shattering my illusions! :-)

      Roger von Oech

      Mark! Either way, it's at least a syllable too long. All poets know that!

      Yeah, the return to two syllables will be a welcome change hahaha

      Randy Bosch

      Good call!
      Personally, I'm "looking" forward to 20-20 when we will have perfect vision again!

      Mark McGuinness

      Roger - You're right, there are few things in heaven and earth more likely to provoke feelings of irritation than a superfluity of syllables. ;-)

      10-20-2010 will be a good date of birth to have (or wedding date if you want to get married on a Wed.) The month & day are the year backwards.

      01-02-2010 is interesting b/c the month & day are a mirror image of the year.

      Can anyone think of any other interesting looking dates for 2010?

      Roger von Oech

      @Suzanne If you live in Europe, getting married on October 20, 2010 will be 20-10-2010 or
      Twenty-Ten, Twenty-Ten. Pretty Cool!

      yes I am agree to your post 2010 is the best. Most of the years in this decade have been pronounced with one or more syllables than necessary.
