Right before the end of 1999 I tried to get people to say emem, emem one, emem two (as in MM, Roman numerals). That went about as successfully as me calling the $2 coin a doubloonie.

Not that I'm bitter...

    Half of the anchors at WTOP radio (no longer at the top of my dial. Heck, not even on AM anymore) call it "Twenty-Oh-Six."


I've heard some of the ABC radio announcers using twenty-oh-six as well.

It's two thousand six for me, and it will be until twenty ten, but then it is going to be jumbled. Twenty eleven just doesn't sound right, and by the same token, two thousand fifteen sounds off as well.



For reasons of creative incompetence, this space will be left blank. Advertising opportunities are avaliable though!!! Contact (Number removed due to pending litigation) for details!

I've never heard it any other way, and I know people from a pretty broad cross section of countries. But, I wouldn't bet the house on it, as it's certainly possible.

I say twenty-ten when referring to the year singularly, but in succession, say 2008, 2009, 2010, I'll say oh-eight, oh-nine, oh-ten. Just habbit I guess.

Looking forward to oh-eleven.

Because of the movie, it has always been "two thousand ten."
