It seems to me astro-naughts have a lot of ass


#1

Our 5th grade teacher was older and used the old fashioned word “naught” for zero. Just another pun.


#2

i just saw that exact same post on Answerbag. stalkers no internet stalkers no less

It’s ought the is no “n”


#3

Do you mean that the correct would is ought, not naught? Because I might be misremembering.


#4

I find myself using the word ‘nought’ more than zero!


#5

Hey. I just got it!!


#6

Astrozeros…


#7

I’ve always heard, read and used the word as 'nothing" or 'does not happen" as in Come to naught not zero…though I understand that is an American term, whereas the nothing term is old English…

Actually I saw the original Apollo space capsule in The Smithsonian in Washington DC. Those astronauts had to be tiny to fit in that thing.
