If I had a hangover now, this would make it either worse, or better. Or the same. Possibly the same. I guess I can't be sure. If I start drinking now, the show will be over before the hangover sets in. I guess I'll have to think of a different experiment to do. Any ideas?

Please allow me to clarify JtotheK above reference to "Vision Of Love". He is surely talking about Wing's version and NOTthe other one. Thanks.

Although, today is the start of the 2020s, I believe that an official Decade cannot start in a year that ends with a zero. Which would mean that next New Year’s Day would start the Decade

so by that thinking, we are all one year younger than our claimed aige, because the first year technically doesn't count as one.

That's correct, Ashville Jon. Now let me tell you about Korea, where a baby is considered to be one year old, accounting for the time spent in the womb. The baby will turn two not a year after it is born, but on New Year's.
