Because all comparisons with NAN return false, that's the spec. is NAN > 0? False. Is NAN< 0? False. Is NAN == 0? False. Is NAN == <anything>? False. So: Is NAN == NAN? False. And one more: Is NAN < 1.0e18? False
This makes some sense because NAN is Not A Number, so any comparison to a number fails.
