    We could say the exact same thing in english... it didn't really ever confuse me... for example.

    "Are we going to the fair?"
    "No"
    "Are you sure? " "
    "yes"
    "But you said we were going"
    "we'll we arn't"
    "So we arn't going?"
    "Yes! no!"
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    -У нас ещё много молока!
    -Да нет! Нет у нас совсем молока.

    or

    -У нас кончилось молоко.
    -Да нет! У нас ещё много молока!

    "Да" here doesn't mean "yes". It has some other meanings in Russian. It's like "well, OK, h-mm, but, and" etc.

    This use is rather like the German "doch", if you're familiar.
