The year 1999 AD was noticeable for being the last year to contain a "1" at the beginning and three "9"s at the end, since 1999 BC. It was also noticeable because if you turned it upside down you could make 6661, which as we all know is the Number of the Devil (multiplied by 10, and adding 1). It was also the last year of the 2nd millenium, and is therefore known technically as an "almost-year".

The United Nations designated 1999 as the "International Year of Older Persons", whilst Somalia called it the "International Year of Older Pirates".
