Your pointless thoughts & observations

Some people need to remember that the first year started at zero. The second year was year 1.

I remember walking around the Killing Fields in Cambodia with a guy who was wearing a NIN Year Zero shirt and he had no idea the history of that phrase in Cambodia

Ackchuyally.. Gregorian and Julian calendars don't have a year 0. They just jump straight from 1BC to AD1. And, yes, it's bullshit, but the Roman numerals didn't have a concept or symbol for zero.

The second year started at year 1 but it was not year 1 at least until year 1 ended and year 2 started. Also, when zero to nine are all individual numbers, how come they are called a decade if they are actually different years?

If year 1 started at 0, maybe it's because the first decade started at 1? And the year basically steps aside for the decade and starts one time unit earlier, because a decade is bigger than a year, kind of like a cluster of years?

0 (zero) is a number,[1] and the numerical digit used to represent that number in numerals. It fulfills a central role in mathematics as the additive identity of the integers, real numbers, and many other algebraic structures. As a digit, 0 is used as a placeholder in place value systems. Names for the number 0 in English include zero, nought (UK), naught (US) (/nɔːt/), nil, or—in contexts where at least one adjacent digit distinguishes it from the letter "O"—oh or o (//). Informal or slang terms for zero include zilch and zip.[2]Ought and aught (/ɔːt/),[3] as well as cipher,[4] have also been used historically.[5]

Zero is not a number, it’s the concept from which we derive all numbers as being non-zero.

There is no zero, only nothing.  Nothing is everything.  Everything is nothing.  Is there thing?  No.

Before there was nothing.  After there was everything. Between is the eternal now.

That's going to be my first thought again

A chicken lays an egg, eats it, shits it out, eats it, shits it out again, eats it, etc. until it dies. Then another chicken eats the remains, layz another chicken, that chicken lays an egg and inside of it is the new BoC album. Martin Shkreli is in prison, trying to figure out a way to buy it to take the place of the Wu Tang album after it was seized by the US government. He does not succeed, so he settles for Moby’s neck tattoo. The egg winds up in the hands of our hero as he treks his way to Mordor. Good thing he is accompanied by a plucky sidekick in the form of a career revitalizing performance from Edward Furlong as a lovesick political refugee with nefarious motives and a knack for chainsaw juggling. The saga begins this summer in select theaters.

There is no now, there is only the ever present experience of now stretching through the space-time continuum.
