That feeling when you realize that you knew all along that the 2000 decade connotations would never have the same zing that the 1900s and previous centuries did; they don't quite roll off the tongue as easily. For example, saying "in the 2010s" or "the '10s" just doesn't sound as good as saying "the 1960s" or "the '90s." But then again, if one were to say "the '10s," it's really not clear if one is talking about 1410 or 1910, either, other than the context of [current] time, which is obvious. But anyway you slice it, whoever came up with this decades system allowed for flaws in the system, as shortening the decades can lead to confusion under the right circumstances. In all likelihood, it's doubtful the decades can be misconstrued, but I'm sure it has happened at some point over time. Then, you realize that the 2000s will continue on until such a time that the 3000s roll around, where you can finally say, "In the yeeeeeear 3000."

I always say twenty-10s or twenty-0s. Felt right off the tongue, imo.
