    Default 007...

    hello,

    it may seem simple but I couldn't find the pronunciation of 007 (james bond).
    Is it zero zero, double oh or double zero seven?

    Also, about blood groups, A, B, AB, 0. Is the last one a letter (O) or a number, zero? If it is a number, how is it pronounced?

    thanks in advance..

    thank you asmaa,
    still I found this text from nobelprize org and it says null.

    "AB0 blood grouping system

    According to the AB0 blood typing system there are four different kinds of blood types: A, B, AB or 0 (null)."

    and 007 is still a mystery:)

    As far as James Bond is concerned, it's "double O, 7"

    No, it cannot be double love seven, not if you're referring to the popular spy character invented by the author Ian Fleming.

    Also, 00 means that he has the liscense to kill. The number 7 refers to him being the seventh person granted the legal authority to kill.

    My blood type is 0Rh- and as far as I know it's pronounced as [type oh negative].

    It was also a question asked by the original poster:

    hello,

    it may seem simple but I couldn't find the pronunciation of 007 (james bond).
    Is it zero zero, double oh or double zero seven?

    Also, about blood groups, A, B, AB, 0. Is the last one a letter (O) or a number, zero? If it is a number, how is it pronounced?

    thanks in advance..
    Insightful information about James Bond. I always wondered where the number came from.
