    Well that cost you some nerd cred. The decade ends in nine months.

    You are correct in the original usage of the term decade - a period of ten years (the OED lists the first use in 1605 in T. Hutton's Resons for Refusal at p. 121 "So many tens or decads [sic] of yeares.") Of course, by that definition, I am also correct. A decade can be any ten year period, which can begin or end at any point you choose.

    Among the non-pedantic, however, a decade has come to mean a ten year period of time beginning on a 00, 10, 20...year and ending on 09, 19, 29 and so forth. There is no doubt, for example, that events from 1980 would be included in VH1's I Love the 80s and those of 1990 would be omitted. Should you not be convinced by the wise minds of VH1, let me point you to the Cambridge dictionary. There, decade is defined as "a period of ten years, especially a period such as 2010 to 2019."

    If nothing else, I hope that at least a scintilla of nerd cred has been restored.
