What does it mean "when a string is not truthy"?
I'm not sure the difference between a truthy string and a non-truthy string
A string is "truthy" if it exists and has a length.

'The secret to learning what is truthy and what is falsey is to learn what's falsey.
1: undefined is falsey.
2: null is falsey.
3: 0 is falsey.
4: The empty string is falsey. eg- ""
5: NaN is falsey.
everything else is truthy. except false because that is well.. false.'
