    Don’t drink. Never have. Still (no pun intended), I can’t understand how you know what s**t tastes like, so you can make the comparison?

    Actually it is you that is missing the point. We are talking about how many years there are in a decade.

    From the very first comment above " just turned one year before his seventh decade." The seventh decade of AGE would be 60-69. One year before that would be 59. Just turned 59.

    A decade does not start with 1, it starts with 0. The count of the number of years in the decade is 10.

    Centuries, on the other hand do start with 1 and that is why the 20th century was 1900’s for all but the last year. Just as the 21st century will be 2000’s for all but the last year. The last year of the 1st century was 100, not 99. The last decade of the 1st century, the 90’s, was 90 through 99 however. 10 years! And that makes the 1st “decade” of the first century short, 1 through 9. Nine years only, since there was no year 0 in the calendar.

    That is why the movie was called 2001 a Space Odyssey, the first year of the 21st century.

    We have always started the new year taking down the tree and decorations. I cut all the branches off it. Cut the trunk into 12-14" pieces and save them for use as the yule log on the next Christmas eve.

    Started the tradition when the kids were young. After church, the family sits in front of a 15-20 minute burn of a year old tree trunk, sipping home made eggnog (no alcohol content) and talking and then (it use to be) get the kids off to bed.

    We just keep talking now!

    Because the table didn’t line up you completely missed the array. There were four spaces between Year and the digit in each succeeding line so the last digit lined up with the value above it. Try this;

    Year 2020 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 2021 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 2022 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 2023 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 2024 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 2025 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 2026 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 2027 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 2028 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 2029 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Of course not. It was counted as year 0. That’s the whole point.

    Let’s make this simple for you. Count them. 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026, 2027, 2028, 2029. Ten years. Subtract 2020 from each year. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Still ten years.

    If we start with the 1 you require it becomes 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026, 2027, 2028, 2029, 2030. ten years. How is 2030 a year in the decade of the 20’s?

    Year 2020 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 1 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 2 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 3 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 4 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 5 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 6 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 7 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 8 Jan – Dec 12 months

    Year 9 Jan – Dec 12 months

    120 months

    @ 12 months per year = 10 years.The decade of the 20’s in the twenty-first century

    Decades, unlike centuries, start with zero. A baby is one decade old at the end of the 9th year. 0 to 9 is ten years. Centuries, being one hundred years confuse the issue. 19 hundreds being the 20th century ended on Dec 31, 2000, NOT 1999.

    It is probably soul(er) powered.

    I just don’t have the $120,000.00 to buy in to a new ‘hand’

    Actually it was first published 22 Jan 1967 – I was in college then. https://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1967/01/22 even has an extra panel that GoComics usually leaves out of all the Sunday comics now. So they format vertical better I guess.
