Number Counting Limit

Recommended Posts

We could start with YY, the rediscovered placeholder for the undesirable zero... :coffee:

so 10 would be 1YY, 100 would be 1YYYY, 1000 would be 1YYYYYY, 10,000 would be 1YYYYYYYY, 100,000 would be 1YYYYYYYYYY, 1,000,000 would be 1YYYYYYYYYYYY

yeah that's an improvement :rolleyes:

Ok, you've forced me to do this:

hu * mor |ˈ(h)yoōmər|

noun

1 the ability to perceive or express humor or to appreciate a joke : their inimitable brand of humor | she has a great sense of humor

:unsure:

I didn't think it was possible to have a sense of humor drier than mine. Whoops!

I saw zero discrimination in your post.

Personally, I believe we need the zero, if for no other reason than to mess with our minds.

Impersonally, I think we need them to fill those odd nooks and crannies of arithmetic. We can't have $1.09 mistaken for $1.9. OTOH, that might be how some of the folks in charge balance the budget... what's the difference between $1.09 billion and $1.9 billion? why, zero. There is zero difference.

B)

:lol:

Zero can too be divided by zero. It equals... zero.

We could not have Zen if we didn't have zero, seems to me.

If it's true that the Zero has manifested itself on this board, and is now interacting with the population, then we're in more trouble than I first thought. :unsure:

How fitting that Zero has no personal statement, though.

But I wonder: Do we still need the zero? It's a fact that the zero cannot be divided by itself; moreover, any positive integer cannot be divided by zero. Certainly, positive integers--and one might even argue negative integers--have more stake in our counting system than does the zero. There was a reason the zero did not immediately 'pop in' to humanity's mathematical lexicon; should we revisit those reasons?

Zero isn't so much a number as a concept. The idea of having 1 apple is straightforward, but the idea of having 0 apples is also important.

ZERO = the number of good qualities my last boyfriend possessed.

I'd never admit that, because that would mean "You" would have zero taste :rolleyes:

What beats me though is the concept of having -1 apple.

Shouldn't there be a hole somewhere? :huh:

I'd prefer if you'd wire 1,YYYYYY,YYYYYY,YYYYYY to my charity for those adversely affected by the concept ZERO: virgins, my high school football team (we never won a game!), Nickelback (for having no talent), etc...

Well, I'm a little bigger now than I was in high school (graduated in 1998)... I chalk up our losses to terrible coaching -- the kind of coaching that calls for a run up the middle when a pass is necessary... We had talent, didn't have wins.
