Ok. Me and my friend are having an argument right now.

If you say that "today is the worst day since yesterday," which day would be worse, today or yesterday?

I'm saying that yesterday would be worse and my friend is saying today would be worse.

----------------------------

Think of it like this.

If you said today is the rainiest day since Thursday, Thursday has to be rainier. So if you say today is the worst day since yesterday, than yesterday is worse.


Who's right?!

Not necessarily. Maybe you're only including all the days since yesterday. Yesterday is a landmark of some sort, for some reason, but it's not for sure that it was worse than today. In general though, when people say that kind of stuff, you're right.

Neither of you is right, it would be equal.

Happy Birthday JOJ.

You don't give enough information in the statement. To be the worst day since Day 1, you're only comparing Days 2, 3, 4, 5 etc to each other, with Day 1 as the benchmark.

"Since yesterday, I have eaten two bagels and one Haitian prostitute."
Like blue strat said, it's got nothing to do with yesterday, only what's happened since.

I think I've become awesome enough on UG to have a thread spammed to say Happy Birthday.

Anyway, if I say "There haven't been this many protests since the Vietnam War" then that means the protests that are going on today would have to equal or surpass those that happened in the sixties. It's talking about the wars+time in between Vietnam and today that don't equal the previous ones. So you're both wrong, though your friend is slightly less wrong.

And by association, everyone that agreed with him is as well? So I'm still good, right?

Well, on Sportscenter, if they say something like "that's the most home runs in a season since 1974", the 1974 season had more home runs. But once again, I am faced with the sad truth that life is not a sports highlight show. I agree with JOJ.
