    Neithere or neithere. I would call it two thousand AND ten. I was born in 1950. I say eiither nineteen fifty or nineteen hundred and fifty. I wiil call this year two thousand and ten. Twenty ten adds to thirty and the year is not thirty and two thousand ten makes it iinto two thousand tens which is a big bifffity big numbere. Two Thousand And Ten!

    Me, its two thousand ten all the way, and each year there after two thousand will always precede the rest of the year date, after the turn of the millenium 10 years ago, I never say it differently again, after all my life saying 19 and so and so year until the year 2000 came.

    Historical correctness says we should say 20 but I should imagine I will slip into the Two Thousand.

    Sounds like 24/ 7 or worse 9/11, and I am sure that is not correct English,it´s kiddy talk.

    I've been saying Two Thousand Ten, but hunginsouth made a very good point here that I hadn't considered. Hmmm...
