The Big If : want to use raw_input() function


#1

'''want to make the function below return True
but I dunno why this doesn't work.

def the_flying_circus():
    a=raw_input("gimme any # you got: ")
    b=int(a)
    if b>0:    
        return True
    elif b<0 or b==0:
        b=-1*b
        return True
    else :
        return b>=0
    
print the_flying_circus()

#2

For which numbers does it not work?
