“2009 is the first year of global governance.”
2009 was a year where people made ships and Supreme Court appointments with FEELINGS. With WORDS, they continued to predict some stuff, but they didn't happen.
2009 first happened in 2008, and it last happened in 2010.
Obscure things that happened in 2009
2009 is an interdimensional number that mixes up stuff from the 1980s and imparts knowledge of chemistry. However, skeptics deny this and claim that it just regurgitates the 1960s.
This means that you can travel to different dimensions in 2009. Since 2009 is dead and gone, you need to figure out how to time travel first.
