                    Int16.MaxValue };
bool result;

foreach (short number in numbers)
{
   result = Convert.ToBoolean(number);                                 
   Console.WriteLine("{0,-7:N0}  -->  {1}", number, result);
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//       -32,768  -->  True 
//       -10,000  -->  True 
//       -154     -->  True 
//       0        -->  False 
//       216      -->  True
