Okay so my friends and I were having random conversations and we somehow started talking about nothing... and we were confused as to if nothing is nothing or if nothing is something
Me and one of my friends think nothing is something
While the other two think nothing is nothing...
So what's the answer?

Nope, no actually such thing as "nothing", sweetie! If there was it would, by definition, NOT be nothing! Nothing is different than zero, it is often called null, it the absence of something/anything/everything! I am quite certain.
So nothing is simply our way of saying, in realistically layman's terms, NOT that and empty place or thing exists, but, in fact, it does not exist at all!
Sorry Chelsea! You're two friends were right on this one. I'd rather say you're amazingly correct!, but if you would like the truth, then I can't! :) And, in this case, it is a known or a provable concept, whereas most things simply have compelling reproducible experimental evidence! It can be proven because it is defined by Wo/Mankind. If we define something than it is by definition exactly equal to said 'thing' in mathematics. No approximations necessary! 2.54 inches is equal, BY DEFINITION to one inch. Completely arbitrary measurements made up by people with plenty of free time on their hands! But it is EXACTLY 2.5400000000000000... forever filled with zeros, centimeters that make up one (1.0000000...) inch! There is no error because we defined it. Similarly, we defined nothing, and while technically, it's something, as in it's a 'defintion' IT MEANS nada, null, void, absence, nill! :)
Very intelligent question!

Nothing doesn't exist. If you are upset about nothing technically you are upset about something.2
