the difference between a "crowd" and a "mob" is one push

The concept of centuries -- 19th, 20th, 21st -- and their self-contained essence (self-referential nature) owes itself to the Victorians. Do it have any place today? Does it mean anything?

The concept of decades as frameworks is more modern. Mostly, though, just like centuries, it is all a matter of perspective and a bunch of bullshit.

That's such an aught view. The teens'll be where it's at.

Seriously, are you of the mind that a decade/century starts at XX00, or XX01? Everybody celebrates the former, but there are a lot of arguments that, for example, the millennium actually started in the year 2001, not 200.

A HiveGod coloring book related to a geekbuddy

A purring lover replies to a gel or goo of some sort sucking up to a non sequitur. The turned down Spock and a turned up Kirk challenges a child to a cage fighting match with a vaporized bacon-enhanced chocolate bar. The heaping bowl of 'wait, what' for a future colorful GROGnads text is hairy. Furthermore, a Batman feels nagging remorse, and a jedi conquers the picture of a very, very cute cat.


Just had to be said.

Some of my synaesthesia is related to years, decades and centuries, so each one is a different color to me. Remove that concept and time is monochromatic and boring.

It probably means just as much as adding a Leap Second to our calendar. We did that at the end of 2008.
