“The humans are dead

2000 (M&M) was a leap year that started on Saturday of the Common Era, in accordance with the Gregorian calendar.

Popular culture holds the year 2000 as the first year of the 21st century and the third millennium. Popular culture is also stupid. In real life the year 2001 was the first year in the 21st century. This is, of course, because the first century started with 1. There was no year 0, and you are stupid for even thinking there was.
