    Oh yes.

    And wouldn't it be nicer if the sky was pink, and God came personally down
    to earth and stopped all wrans and made you king?

    You do realize that many things are signed, whether you want them to be or
    not?

    Like "off_t", which on the face of it sounds like it should be unsigned
    ("offset within a file - oh, that can obviously never be negative").
