I believe it's also because None lacks any binary value at all, whereas
- -99999999.99 or 0 have a value in binary.
if None < 0: print "hi"
if None > 0: print "hi"
But in human terms, None == 0 and None > -9999999.99.
People should read more.
"All that is gold does not glitter,
not all those who wander are lost;
the old that is strong does not wither,
deep roots are not reached by the frost.
- From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
a light from the shadows shall spring;
renewed shall be blade that was broken,
the crownless again shall be king."
