Here is what I cobbled together.
I found this little book called "The History of ZERO". Apparently, the Babylonians invented ZERO when they devised a symbol that was a placeholder. Their ZERO looks more like a pair of little flags standing side by side. But it was still ZERO. You go Babylonians! ZERO had to be invented a second time around 500 A.D in the Hindu system of mathematics. The history of ZERO is actually pretty interesting. You know, if you're into that sort of thing. It is hard to imagine life without ZERO now. What would life be without nothing? Wait, what?
So, uh, as you can see, this Saturday Scavenger Shots turned out to be more of a little lesson in mathematics than a series of awesome photos (which I very seldom achieve, in any event!) Just remember...nothing from nothing leaves nothing. You gotta have something, if you wanna be with me. So sayeth Billy Preston and so it shall be.
