    ...it took me over a day to get your reference, cos "Nostra" means "ours" in Latin - e.g. "pater noster qui es in caelis" ("Our Father who art in Heaven") ... so I kept on thinking, "What does he mean by 'Our' Goktimus?!?"

    As outlined in Post #1, once your count exceeds the current year, then you can switch from C.E. to B.C.E. Although I might do a combination of both - C.E. for upcoming (planned, scheduled or expected) events and B.C.E. for things that have already happened.

    I would believe The Simpsons than Futurame at predicting the future at the rate The Simpsons is racking them up.

    I'm adding a new rule to this thread (cos it's just too hard to do chronology once you've hit past 2018) and include any other real life number stuff that you can relate your collection count too, e.g. postcodes etc.

    My current count is the same as the postcode for Parramatta.
