Happy 12!

Since a ton of people are going to refer to this year as "Two-thousand twelve" instead of correctly calling it "Twenty-twelve", I propose an entirely new method – dropping the first two digits entirely.

No more confusion. 2007 is "seven", 2012 is "twelve". It only becomes an issue when we get to the 2100's. Does it start over? I don't care, the future can figure that one out!

I'm sure some people do this already. Awesome! Keep it up.

    Since most people don't live to be 100, I don't think there will ever be much confusion. If somebody in 50 years says, "I remember back in 12…" people will know they don't mean 1912. Like when people today say, "In the 90s…" it is pretty obvious they don't mean the 1890s. I think you are on to the right idea.

    I think we just need to get people to say it correctly. Why give them another choice to screw it up?

    A friend told me that eventually people will start say 'twenty' … but probably not until 'twenty twenty' (how foolish are the morons who say "two thousand" going to sound when they say 'two thousand twenty'?

    Happy Twenty Twelve!
