    The Naught-ies (or is that nought-ies?) Views: 1073
     Thursday, October 25 2007 @ 07:10 PM EDT
    I'm finally getting caught up on old Podshock episodes (one of the reasons I haven't been posting...sorry, Dave), and I cracked up when I heard James refer to the eighties, the nineties, and the naughties. I'd never heard that before, but I think I'm going to start using it.

    It gives new mean to the term, "the naughty bits."

    I'm going "Full Circle" and putting my avatar back to what it was when I first joined. :)

    I guess you weren't around at the start of the twentieth century... This happens every hundred years.

    The first time I heard the expression was actually by a German football journalist, talking the differing fortunes of his national team throughout the various decades. He mentioned the "naughties" and I put it down to a non English speaking person making a fair enough assumption of the English language (and it did make me laugh).

    Since then I've heard it used as an expression a few times and it still strikes me as odd.

    It makes sense I mean there has to be a word for the first 10 years of a century.

    Though I always called it the 2000s, but that doesn't really compute either.

    Naught or nought an alternate word for zero, that or the Nillies!

    The twenties and thirties will be OK - but what about the '10's' - what are they called?

    Yes - but although you can say 'twenties' and 'thirties' how can you say 'tenies'????

    I was really hoping "the aughts" would catch on... as in "Aught Six" for 2006 (or nineteen aught six, as they tend to say in Westerns).

    oh well, I can do "naughties"

    supremacy is relative

    The first 10 years of the 20th century were known as "the naughty oughts", I believe...

    Did you say "74,384,338 to 1 against"? That's my lucky number!

    Ok, I suppose that should be "aughts".
