Assunto:  What does "ever" mean in this case?
 
Mensagem: 
ever = never   (double negative)

"Languages without negative concord typically have negative polarity items that are used in place of additional negatives when another negating word already occurs. Examples are "ever", "anything" and "anyone" in the sentence." Wiki.
