WHAT DOES ZERO MEAN ?

Z is the ideal letter to describe Zero. To my surprise when I wanted to know what zero exactly meant I found a whole page about it here in Wikipedia !

To me zero has often a negative sense, because if you are a zero in life, it's rather sad for you and at school too a zero is not well seen at all.

When you are born you wear size zero, after growing up each zero added to your size especially concerning clothes or the waist can be rather depressing.

Temperatures around zero are not very enjoyable either unless you are a fan of wintersports. Although there is a difference between the Celius zero or the Fahrenheit. But for both : it's cold !

But zero can also have a very happy meaning ! for example if you get a bill to pay of an amount of 0, or 0 taxes to pay. Which is far better than if the zero is preceded by a number.

It's also a big difference if you win in the lottery 10 € or there are 6 zeros added to the 10 ! then you are really lucky. In elevators too it's better to get stuck on floor zero than between floor 10 or 20 ! You have the chance to get out quicker.

Conclusion, sometimes a zero is good and sometimes bad !

I will settle for 4 zeros at the end of a 1 when I win the lottery. That's not greedy is it?

My son was just asking about zero. It was hard for his three year old brain to wrap around.

Quite a thought provoking subject - and I especially like the drawing caricature of 10 - that is real good - I will never think of zero in the same way again - Jane UK
