I once broke up with a woman. After a week had passed, she wanted to get back together.
I told her, "Honey, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways:
"Zero ... nada ... zilch ... none ... no way ... nein ... nyet."
That was seven ways of nothing. So seven times zero equals zero.
I think she got the message, because she went on her way and I haven't seen her since.
