    Strangely enough, my math major friends all had no idea about this one.

    A scalar is a quantity without a specific direction.
    A vector is a quantity with a specific direction.
    What is a direction without a quantity called?

    In other words, let's say I have a number, and I care whether it's positive or negative, but I don't care how big the number is. What the hell is that called? I'm driving myself nuts with this.
