Re: how do you pronounce 2016?

But if we break the year 2017 up into two chunks, we get: 20 and 17.

Subtract the second from the first: 20 - 17 = 3

Yup. Portal 3.

Re: how do you pronounce 2016?

Okay, time to derail this thread with a conspiracy theory:

First, we look at the digits of 2017: theres a 2, a 0, a 1, and a 7.

Next, we count up how many of those digits are non-zero: three of them.

Oh me yarm DOES THIS MEAN PORTAL 3 COMES OUT IN 2017????????????????????
