When comparing number zero with a not empty string, it returns true.

Reproduce code:
$something = 0;
if($something) {
    echo $something . "is true. <br />";
if ("thestring") {
    echo "thestring is true" . "<br />";
if ($something == "thestring") {
    echo "why?" . "<br />";
if("thestring" == $something) {
    echo "again why?" . "<br />";

Expected result:
thestring is true

Actual result:
thestring is true
again why?
