Oh no! 2006 has 2007 on the ropes! Just one more punch…


2006: Six. Devil number.

2007: Seven. Number of heaven.

2007 comes back and delivers the death blow! 2007 is the winner! Despite it losing in all rounds but one, I just like how 2007 sounds better. Therefore 2007 wins.

Are there any more rounds of comparison between 2006 and 2007 that I missed? Oh, I got one.

Roman Numeral

2006: MMVI

2007: MMVII

Winner: 2007 (MMVII is a nice symmetrical number)
