Maybe you missed this math lesson, but there's no such thing as "-0" :rolleyes:

Paraphrasing: "The wind gusts added to the air temperature make it feel like 'minus 0' right now" :eek:

Maybe she did not major in math, but in computer science, where minus zero exists. ;)

JT, Zero can not be a negative number. It is zero.

hi crabs,
maybe she was using the term 'minus' to refer to a number below zero?

That's:
Kai Jackson 10,793 screw ups
Bernadette Woods 1

I have never seen or heard a person stumble through a NIGHTLY news cast more than Kai Jackson. How did he ever get that job, affiirmative action? If he was a surgeon, he's be behind bars for malpractice.

We should just go to an absolute temperature scale. 255 degrees Kelvin sounds much warmer and pleasant than 0 degrees Fahrenheit :)

I'm sure you think most black people benefited from AA. How did you get by?

Maybe she didn't mean -0 (a non existent number), but - 0 as in less than 0.
