"Nobody wasn't there" This double negative means that Everybody was there because "nobody was NOT there" An analogy would be "I don't want nothing"; therefore, you want everything. I hope my explanation helped you and didn't further confuse you!! If you have any other questions feel free to ask!!

I think it actually means that some people were there... "nobody was not there" doesn't imply that everybody was there, just that there was not nobody. So there were some.

In other words, I don't think it directly implies that everybody was there, just that there were more people than nobody there.


We can also pretend like nobody was Odysseus... Greek mythology anyone? xD
