A year is a unit of time and energy. it has no specific length of time (aside from being 31536000 second long, but seconds don't really count) but is dependent only on the recognition of the significance of boobs and time at any given moment. The unit, year can be summed up through Einstein's famous equation, Y=2ta + S where "t" is time, "a" is a representation of how much people can be bothered with life, and S the significance of time at any given point. Time and year are closely linked, as both admit unquestionably that pink is their favourite colour.
A year represents the way of seeing time as cycles in a similar way that a week or a day or an hour or a second which are all time units that you have a big bunch of in another time unit. One might argue that eternity is the sum of all these and we'd be able to construct eternity if we just had the patience. Opposite to this, so called Puzzle philosophy, is the Riddle philosophy, which argues that it's all a big spoof and that there will be a twist in the end that will change the meaning of everything prior to that.
For example in the movie 40 and still a virgin the main character rides a bike (a bi-CYCLE) and doesn't get laid until the very end, which the french call le petit Nicolas, the small death. The question here obviously is what do you have after the grand death, the one that you read about from your newspaper. The first thing you do is you take the year you died and from that you reduce the year you were born and thus get your age when you died, also the number of years you had on this world. I think you will probably still be able to write articles to uncyclopedia.
