Just read a thread on another site discussing nulls. (Whether there should be empty strings and nulls as separate ... you know the kind of thing let's not get into it) I love this particular post:

As Donald Rumsfeld would say, "We have known unknowns and unknown knowns and unknown unknowns."

I prefer just to remember a few simple rules about how to handle NULL and try not to think about the philosophical implications.

If I wanted a headache I'd have drunk heavily last night. At least that way I'd have gained some enjoyment from it.

Quality Smile
Please Note. This is meant purely as a little joke and not an attempt to start up a long winded discussion on NULLS.
