Double click the small icon in the bottom right hand corner showing the current time, and you shall find out what year it is.

But in all actuality, it's 2008, as the year 0 was never counted. It skipped from 1 B.C. to 1 A.D., and year zero was never used. So counting from what should've been year zero, it is currently July 2008.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

its 2038. due to year 0 not being counted and that they didnt realize that there was leap year until some time ago.
There is a war going on for your mind.

If you are thinking, you are winning.


Resistance is victory.

Do not sit idly by.

Oh wait, this thread has almost purpose now. You should've taken what various religions recognize as the current year, and put them in the poll. That would've made more sense

Ahh, touche. I didn't think about the whole unrecognized leap year thing.

Clocks tick. Your days are numbered in low digits.
You look suspicious - suspect niggas is bitches,
Get chopped up, grade-A meat, somethin' delicious

Even if they didn't realize there were leap years, you gain 1 day ever 4 years. For roughly 2000 years, that's only 500 days, just growing on 2 years. That also proves a point that seasons occurred at different times. But still, it would be 2009.

EDIT: this is if we are following the Christian calendar. The lunar calendar in which we recognize to be 5769 does not have leap years, every so often it gets an extra MONTH. As far as I know, this has been done for a very long time.

So it IS actually 2009.

This is actually proving to be an interesting thread.

There was no poll, so everyone at first assumed it was someone making a dumb thread. Then it turned to be interesting, and no longer constitutes being closed.

They theorise that there will be a series of catastrophic events leading up to 21/12/2012 so it might be much sooner for you.

On that day, I will be slouching in my rocking chair on the front porch...

Rocking there branding a daft grin with a gallon jug of semi-purified water in hand hanging loosely off to the side of me. I'll look off at the sunset - folks screaming, hysteria erupts amuck over nothing and I'll take a swig of my hydrator and just mutter an accomplished:

"Heh, heh heh... tits"


Then I'll go inside and continue with life as usual.

It's the 1920's ol' boy! Quite the bees knees! Everyone is welcome to hop into the jalopy and head off to the local speakeasy with me. There's a swanky joint uptown. We'll chat up some birds for a little neckin'. It'll be keen.

A year is however long it takes the Earth to orbit the Sun. So yes, years do exist. It's just how we split up that year into smaller measurements of time that is more subjective.

I put the word fact in quotes because I was trying to show that it isn't actually fact that we're all going to die in 2012. However, that night will be one hell of a party all over the world, me thinks.

2005.

Astronomers have calculated that the astronomical event known as "the Star of Bethlehem" was actually Jupiter eclipsing Regulus, which happened around 4 A.D.

Silly classes in college can actually teach you some pretty interesting stuff.
