The same applies to the new century. One hundred years ago nobody doubted that the twentieth century would begin on 1 January 1901 (for proof, see the newspapers of that date). Little did they think that it would last only 99 years. What I would like to know is: is this adjustment of one year permanent, or will the 21st century last 101 years to compensate?
