The World According To Damien

Damien on… Nothing

They tell us that zero isn’t really a number. It’s the LACK of a number. The Ancient Romans had numbers going up to one MILLION (a capital M with a bar over it) but they had NO ZERO. Therefore logically, their zero was an empty space, right?

So does this mean that in Roman schools, when the teacher asked a kid to wipe the blackboard, he then chastised the child for leaving it covered in zeros?
