    Two thousand and ten would actually be 2000.10. the 'and' in a number normally signifies the decimal point.

    Two thousand ten for me.

    Then "four and twenty blackbirds" meant 4.20 blackbirds?

    This is not worth a fight, but I was referring to modern English. I also used the word 'normally.'

    To each his own, I suppose.

    Anyone else remember the boondoggle of a "fire prevention" PSA that was wholly dedicated to convincing people to say "Smokey Bear" not "Smokey the Bear"?

    I say two thousand ten but at least you are consistent with the way we all said the years in the 1900's.
