Reason #83 that I'm glad I don't have to learn English

How is it that "second to none" means the opposite of "next to nothing"?

As in:
Q: "How would you rate her knowledge?"

A1: Second to none
A2: Next to nothing

And did you know that "in" means "out of"?

"He works in the San Diego office" = "He works out of the San Diego office"
