There are 10 kinds of people in this world:
Those who understand ternary
Those who though this was about binary
And those who have no clue what I just said
Alright, full explanation:
Each finger is a number, starting with your right thumb at 1.
Each finger after that is double the previous finger, so you index finger is 2, middle finger is 4, ring finger is 8, and pinkie is 16.
When counting, you hold up each finger and add the numbers they represent.
Example: 23 is 2+4+16, or thumb, index, middle and pinkie.
The fingers on your right hand totals 31. Once you hit 31, the thumb on your left hand is 32.
You left hand is 32, 64, 128, 256 and 512.
Example: 666 is left pinkie and middle, and right index, ring and pinkie. Don't know why I chose 666 as an example, but why the **** not.
All 10 fingers add up to 1023. Once you hit 1023, your right big toe is 1024 and you continue from there.
When all 10 fingers and toes are added together, you get a grand total of 1048575, which is 1+2+4+8+16+32+64+128+256+512+1024+2048+4096+8192+16384+32768+65536+131072+262144 +524288.
TL:DR ******* OF NUMBERS AND ****, YO!
But if you read it, congratulations! You're probably the only person in all of FJ to read this explanation.
