Does a zero have 0 angles, or infinite angles?

I saw a much better example of this a while back but I can't seem to find it anymore.

hey, circles are just an idea of an object with an infinite amount of angles.

It reminds me of they used to teach us to add in 1st grade. Instead of angles, they put dots on either the endpoints or corners of the number. I still count like sometimes. lol

You think 9 is bad? You should see 99.

Ok, so I can sort of buy how they thought for most of them, but seven and nine are probably the most strained attempts to prove a theory I've seen/heard.

That was a new way to write 9.

Um.. fairly arbitrary counting of the *inside* angles in this. e.g. 6, 8, 9. How come some of the inside angles count and not others?!
and 5 and 9 are both butchered. This is unfortunately stupid. but hey. Nice try.

LOL 9. "Let's make it straight like normal people do. Wait, no, not enough angles... Add in another line, we can get away with that. poo... Not enough angles. Okay, one more. It can look like a backwards G. ... ... Crap, do another one; we've come this far might as well not give up now. ANOTHER ONE DO ANOTHER ONE."

And then their 9 looked like something you'd find in a childrens' maze book.

Absolute and total bullshat. Numbers 1 to 3 are derived from simple tally marks, now connected by lines. The others evolved from complex notations for groups.

Just search 'where did the glyphs for numerals come from' to get the real story.

haha so BS...they butched the # nine, put a line through the 7 so they can have 7 angles, and they dont have the bottom portion for the number 1

I don't agree with the #9, They made it look like a g kinda just to get more angles in there. pfft.
