And it makes sense.
@Blandrice, why does it make sense? Or are you joking?
edit: I was extremely tired and thought the second image had floors underground. Sors
@Factory BOY, floor zero only makes sense if it’s like a secret floor that you’d use to chop up bodies of people that you’ve kidnapped or something
@Factory BOY, because when you are counting things , you dont count the first one as zero
@JackBlackSackAttack, man you didn't do too well in learning the number line didya?
@JackBlackSackAttack, with runescape being a British-made game, I can't tell you how many times I've read a guide that said "first floor" and drove myself nuts looking for something that wasn't there because I hadn't gone upstairs yet
@The Puppet Man, literally logging in now to check out tombs of amascut
@Cousteau, yeah I love having 9 fingers though the 0th one is kinda weird.
@JackBlackSackAttack, We also talk about 1 story buildings, so I can agree here.
We call floor 0 the ground floor where I live, though, then up is 1st floor onwards
@JackBlackSackAttack, unless it's an array.
@JackBlackSackAttack, as a programmer, i have to disagree
@Darth Panserbjorne, I was just about to say something to this effect. Damn you 0-based numbering xD
@The Puppet Man, broooo same. And it was much worse when i was a kid and had no concept of other countries labeling their floors incorrectly
@JackBlackSackAttack, im still f2p grinding Obor and Bryophyta for the club and her staff
@mazemarble, um ok?
When you say how many stories high is your house do you reply with 0? Or 1? Man, everything before 1776 was a mistake.
@krumchris, 1776, or do you mean 0776?
@JackBlackSackAttack, You mean 0665?
@krumchris, do you mean day 1?
If you want to make America look silly compared to other countries, this is not a good example...
I can see a basement being floor zero, because it’s below 1. But the first floor is the first floor, it’s right there in the name. 😎🇺🇸
Here me out… maybe they actually BOTH make sense and the reason one feels weird to you is you’re not used to it. In America you’re counting the floors. In other parts of the world you’re counting floors above ground level. So floor 1 means 1 floor above ground level. They both make perfect sense and arguing over it is silly and a waste of time
@Duncan5769, nah this is the internet we argue over everything here
@Duncan5769, the meme started it
Europeans don’t usually call it floor zero, they call it the ground floor.
@Hagrids Hairy Beard, yeah, ground floor is just... The floor. Everything built up is then counted. Like, a bungalow doesn't have extra floors so it makes sense.
Yeah, a lot of elevators confuse me when they say “L” for lobby and “1” for “first floor”
@Snarfel Burger, look for the *, that floor is a floor with an exit, regardless of numbers
@Hot Coffee, good to know!
