yea, as much as I bitch and think what is going on is soooo stupid (on all levels), I think Chile needs to go through this and will come out a much better place. Just growing pains.

There were initial reports of outright panic among some expats after 18-O. For those who are still here sticking it out (AFAICS the majority of the regular resident-in-Chile posters here), this year will prove what was the right strategy.
There are two ways to be fooled.

One is to believe what isn't true;

the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

The decade is not over yet. There was never a year 0.

The 20s have begun, so it is a new decade. We are not counting from year 1, the title is happy new year and new decade, which is technically correct. Now if you said the new millennium was celebrated a year early you may have a point, but we are now in the decade of the 20s, so it is indeed a new one.

I hate it when these blokes lift my ideas, but the BBC News just confirmed that I have a point. No year 0, so include the last year to make a correct definition.

At this point, most here don't give a rat's ass.

It is all about what happens next in this historical moment of Shiiile.
