Any idea what *truthy* means?

Seems like a dumb question, but it is important that we focus upon this concept when exploring the next question, which will come when this one is sorted out.

Context?

Opposite of falsy? :slight_smile:

If the context is programming then a truthy value is the value that will be treated as True (boolean) when used in the logical context.

Precisely.

Anybody who is fairly well versed knows this, but new learners do not, and many have difficulty wrapping their heads around it. Hence, this discussion. I wanted to let others air their ideas on the subject.
