Philosophy of the Next Decade

When I graduated High School, I was proud to be in the nice even year of 2000. Even those hitting a life landmark this year can say it happened in '06 (that's "oh-six"). The '90s were easy too.

I may be getting ahead of myself, or getting ahead of a global holocaust preempting the need for this. What's going to happen in the next decade? We're talking about 2011 and 2012. '11 (pronounced "eleven") isn't gonna work. "Twenty-eleven" is long. What a painful time in someone's life! I wanna know what we should do. What do you call it? Someone needs to take a stand now and help our future generations through this. If it's any consolation, 2011 is a prime number. "I graduate in twenty-prime" sounds cool. I'm open to suggestions.

Twelve. I got nothing. I'm sorry.

Twenty prime?? That doesn't work!! There's too many prime numbers! What if you graduated in 2017, 2027, 2029, etc? How would you know which one?? Try again. I got lucky, "oh-three" is pretty easy to say.

It's just gonna be "twenty eleven", because saying "eleven" sounds stupid. It might be long, but any other shorter version would just sound stupid and pretentious. To be honest, some idiots will probably even say "two thousand and eleven".

Looks like Cornerstone Festival is calling 2010 "Twenty-Ten" (actually, they're writing 20TEN).
