No. They have the upper hand in appearances. 2010-13 and 2018.

I disagree.  While I know that the century ends with the '00 year (because it begins with 1, not 0), I don't think we need to think of decades in that manner.  So the 10s begin with 2010 and end with 2019.  Then the 20s begin.

So the first decade of the common era only had 9 years and the same for the last decade of the prior era?  I think not.

The current numbering system was applied after the fact.  When what we call "the common era" or anno domini (A.D. — in the year of the Lord) began, no one was using either a Julian or Gregorian calendar.  In fact, when calculating the dates of the calendar, they made at least one mistake, thus the birth of Christ was actually 4 B.C.

But that's really neither here nor there.  When someone says, "the twenties," they're talking about from '20 through '29, not '21 through '30.

Come on guys there are two ways of looking at this issue. From a mathematical point of view (science) the beginning is 0 and the decade ends at the end of the 9th year. From a common usage point of view people do consider the twenties to start '20 and end '29. It is possible for both points of view to be correct.

This is what you meant?  If so, I'm in complete agreement.

Brian would be correct if we were talking about "the 202nd decade of the common era," but we're not accounting that; we're just talking about the 2010s.

How did this post wind up here?  That discussion occurred in a different thread.
