Hmmm... I don't know how to reply to that... It seems like something that'd be (h)ard to reply to.

Today, it is 2013. Tomorrow, it will be 2014. If this rate of year passage sustains, by next year it could be the year 2379.

$1 = 100¢ = (10¢)^2 = ($0.10)^2 = $0.01 = 1¢ [1]

Of course, that is obviously wrong. He should have said, "By late next month," or something like that. First of all, next year is 2014, so he contradicts himself by saying that it is going to be 2014 then that it is going to be 2379, second of all, you can't have dozens of years pass by 'next year', because only one year can ever possibly pass by 'next year'. Third of all, he didn't specify his frame of reference.

I've already seen that. (Yet another reason I decided to criticize dinnerbone's tweet.

The number of people in the world is a straight line? Really?

Well, there haven't been any major wars or baby booms in the past few decades, so yes, it is a straight line.
