From the help:
"The unary ~ (invert) operator yields the bitwise inversion of its plain
or long integer argument. The bitwise inversion of x is defined as
-(x+1). It only applies to integral numbers"
Inverting the bits of a floating point number wouldn't make much sense,
so fortunately it gives an error.
