Binary

Posted on 18/12/2005. Filed under: Life in General |

So….  I got a message today in response to my blast (“There are 10 kinds of people in the world… Those who understand binary and those who don’t”)…  The response read: “There are 3 kinds of people in the world, those that can count, and those that can’t. “

Well… In response to that… In binary code it’s all ones and zeros… and is counted like this:
Binary………Decimal
  1  =   1
10  =   2
11  =   3
and so on….

Hence the quote “There are only 10 kinds of people in the world… Those who understand binary and those who don’t”   Which for those of us who DO know binary then reads “There are only two kinds of people in the world…. Those who understand binary and those who don’t”

Yeah…  I happen to be geek enough that I found  the quote to be humorus…  I found it on a T-shirt from Think Geek  which is a pretty nifty site and includes such fun things as shower shock caffeinated soap, a swiss memory usb (combo usb drive and swiss army knife) and Despair posters.
