    Re: 2012 vs 2012

    In retrospect that should be 2010 instead of 2012 to be more relevant. Plus I calculated Meyer's age based on 2009. Other than that...

    I voted for the first option, though I don't use an "and" between them.

    Re: 2012 vs 2012

    Here's my 2 cents.

    I hear what everyone's saying with the whole consistency thing.

    BUT... Nobody ever said "twenty hundred" or "twenty hundred (one, two, etc)" because it was always "two thousand" or "two thousand (one, two, etc)"

    So if we're going with consistency, it can go both ways right?

    Did you say "twenty oh-eight"?

    Really, I know people are going to have this argument, and some are going to get very heated by the inevitable disagreement, when really, it matters about as much as what color socks I'm wearing right now. Why do people care so much. As long as it's clear, who the * cares?

    I agree. All this arguing is completely pointless.

    Twenty twelve or get punched in the face.
    Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.
