Nods.

PHP is very nice and forgiving with variables. You will also find numbers can be used as both char and int values. That is you can treat them as a string of text or in a math equation without creating a new variable. THis is not the case in most other languages, one or the other. PHP says, fuck it, your a number, we can do math, and fuck it, a number is a charater too.
