“2010 is a year.”
2010 is a typical year which began without fanfare on Friday, January 1st, 2010. It was quickly adopted by islands in the South Pacific, and Australia. Asia, Antarctica and Africa later followed suit, along with parts of South America. Much of Europe, the Pacific U.S. coast, and the U.S. state of Hawaii never accepted the new-fangled year, preferring 2009, or even 2002, on the principle of "Fuck you, futurists of the past, for making us think we'd have flying cars by now."
