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.
Am I the only one calling ******** on this? Computers output ASCII characters, not base 10 numbers. So, considering a Ford machine made this, it should be something akin to 001101100011011000110110.
That using the ascii characters, what they are working on is using the binary number system with only the numbers 1 and 2. What you are talking about is the programming code for all the signals that come from your keyboard. It is an honest mistake but try wikipedia on binary number system.
Okaay, let's try this again. Computers input and output ascii characters and process in binary. So if a computer was trying to convey the message of 666 to other computers, they would use the ascii translation and not the base 10 one. The binary in the picture is right for math, not computers. And considering a robot and not a math professor wrote it, yeahhhh.
Tl;dr: You're wrong, I'm right.
As it is a robot, a robot of equal intelligence to a man, it would be able to understand both languages, and as the ascii is 8 digits for each digit in normal, binary would be a lot shorter and therefore better to use.
Sit down, it's time for a lesson.
Computers deal in units of data called bits, a 1 or a 0.
Each bit is part of a set of 8 bits called a byte.
When you type a character in a computer, say a 6, it is recorded on one byte.
The particular byte for 6 is 00110110.
If a computer wanted to translate 666 to binary, it would do so by repeating the byte for 6 three times.
The only time a computer deals in base 10 is when using the ****** Calculator program on Windows that apparently is physically incapable of ever graphing.
If a computer wanted to translate 666 to BINARY, it would be 1010011010. If a computer wanted to translate 666 to ASCII, it would be 001101100011011000110110.
If a MATHEMATICIAN wanted to translate 666 to binary, it would be what you said. If a COMPUTER wanted to translate 666 to binary, it would be what I said.
As it is a robot, a robot of equal intelligence to a man, it would be able to understand both languages, and as the ascii is 8 digits for each digit in normal, binary would be a lot shorter and therefore better to use. Yes it is the same comment.
