You said it had a measure of 0 and I'm fine with that too, but that's wholly irrelevant. Here I thought maybe you were just alluding to the fact that you thought the measure of the relevant intersection would be 0 since the measure of $\mathcal{C}$ is zero, but now I realize you really didn't have a clue what this thread was about. double

Let's pose a more generalized version of the question for you then. Are there sets A and B where A $\cap$ B = A, the measure of A is undefined, and the measure of B is 0?
