    I totally forgot about the Fotomat! It’s amazing how something so pervasive in our culture can be completely wiped from the collective memory. I’m going to start hunting for Fotomats as well.

    My mom had one of those music boxes! But I guess everyone did in the 70’s…

  3. Brian Jude says:

    I’m still one of the ones who believes that the next decade does not start until January 1, 2011. They follow the centuries & millennia. ;^)

    Wikipedia argues us both: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010s

    It also calls this decade “The Two-Thousands”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000%E2%80%932009

  5. Frank says:

    Decades are informal. They are not a way of counting time since Year One. “The Eighties” is from 1980 to 1989. 1990 is not, and should not, be part of the “The Eighties”. “The Twentyteens” is from 2010 to 2019. However, if you wanted to say “The 202nd Decade”, that would be from 2011 to 2020. But for whatever reason, we do not use that numbering system for decades. We just use the informal system.
