Double negatives in language
"Nothing's not happening." ≠ "Something's happening."
"Nothing" isn't a thing that can happen (except relative to something), so

How we imagine double negatives to work: Negative x Negative = Positive
How they actually work: Nothing x Nothing = Nothing

You see, we consider words like "nothing, not, no, etc.." to be negative, but they are representations of nonexistence, and 0x0+0=0!!

I wouldn't have never no way ever not gotten that from you.

I began to look for the kind of player that doesn't need his ego fed by stardom, but will do what he's supposed to do because he knows the game and loves the game, and will do the job the right way even if someone else gets the glory." ~ Bill Belichick
