I am so tired of hearing about Y2K problems and about the year 2000 not being the new millennium. I have several reasons why the year 2000 is the new millenium. Here are 3 of them: 1. There has to be a zero in the timeline just as there is in the number line. It cannot go from 1 BC to AD 1 without having the year zero in between. 2. When you talk of the year 1990, are you talking of the 80's? 3. When you say "Happy New Year", do you say it at midnight or at 12:01? Do you agree or disagree that the millennium starts Jan. 1, 2000?
