Dammit. You beat me to it.

Of course, a thread about nothing could be about anything you want it to be. It could be about.......well, it could be about shadows which is close to nothing.

MY SHADOW by Robert Louis Stevenson

I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.

The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to grow—
Not at all like proper children, which is always very slow;
For he sometimes shoots up taller like an india-rubber ball,
And he sometimes gets so little that there's none of him at all.

He hasn't got a notion of how children ought to play,
And can only make a fool of me in every sort of way.
He stays so close beside me, he's a coward you can see;
I'd think shame to stick to nursie as that shadow sticks to me!

One morning, very early, before the sun was up,
I rose and found the shining dew on every buttercup;
But my lazy little shadow, like an arrant sleepy-head,
Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.

Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

This did nothing for me. Facepalm

How can anyone become an atheist when we are all born with no beliefs in the first place? We are atheists because we were born this way.

Nothing in general.

It's a childrens poem that I had to memorize in the 3rd grade about a shadow which, if you think about it, is kinda not much of anything. A shadow might qualify as "nothing". Sorta.
