Happy Binary Day!!

For all you computer geeks out there November 11 has a special meaning. For all the other people who are not, it’s Happy Binary Day!

You see, in spite of how smart they seem computers only understand two numbers: 1 and 0. And since computers don’t have fingers, they can only count up to 1. This is called binary counting (or Base 2 for all you math teachers out there).

So the date “11/11/11” is the unofficial Binary Day date. Yes, 10/10/10 was also Binary Day, but you see why it’s “unofficial”.

And remember:
“There are 10 people who understand binary: Those who do and those who do not.
