<< If only we could convince Scouts (and Scouters) that a century begins
year ending in "01" and ends with the year ending in "00." The first century
from the year 1 through the year 100, and every century since then has done
counting the same way, e.g., the sixth century was 501-600, the seventeenth
century was 1601-1700.
Okay, folks. Debate time again! >>
