Finally, I’m at Z (better late than never, considering it is May and this blog is part of the A-Z Blog Challenge)! Since I don’t know about any interesting people (okay, I do, but they might not appreciate appearing in my blog), places or things that begin with the letter Z, I thought I’d finish finish the alphabet with some randomness about zero.
Zero is a number = 0. It precedes the number 1. It is neither positive nor negative. It can be used as a place holder in other numbers and weights. Without zero, 101, would 11.
The Zero was a plane used by the Japanese in World War II.
The word zero is in several song titles:
- Saved by Zero, The Fixx
- Less Than Zero, Elvis Costello
- Zero, Smashing Pumpkins
- Love Minus Zero /No Limit, Bob Dylan
Zero hour refers to midnight (00:00)
Coke Zero is a new low-calorie soda put out by Coca~Cola. The target audience for the drink is men. Men apparently associate diet drinks with women, so this new campaign doesn’t use the word diet. I personally think Coke Zero is better tasting than Diet Coke.
