Hello Nona:

Would you explain to me the joke? I read but I don't understand what it meant to say.

Thank you.

there are10(10 in binary means 2) kinds of people in the world.

now do you understand?
Binary is an On off system
1 MEANS ON
0 means off
its read backwards
<--------
not forwards
---------->
256 128 64 32 16 8 4 2 1
..0.....0...0...0...0.0..0.0.0
you turn on those number and add em up
(There are 10 types of people in the world. those who understand binary and those who dont)
 The 10 or in binary would be

256 128 64 32 16 8 4 2 1
..0.....0...0...0...0.0..0.1.0
so the 2 is the only one on sop there for its 2
There are 2 types of people in the world. those who understand binary and those who dont

i get it
i need to find binary jokes for a school project Emotion: indifferent
and this is a gay joke. not funny at all.
i hope the person who made it never smiles again!
MWAHAHAHAHA
Your one of those who don't understand binary. OK, here goes. Binary only uses the digits "1" and "0". Thus "1" in decimal (the numbers you are used to) is also "1" in binary. However, "2" in decimal is "10" in binary. So when he says 'There are only 10 types of people' he is using the "10" as a binary number, not a decimal number. Thats why there are only two types listed, he said there were only two types of people by using the binary equivalent of a decimal number. Note: decimal to binary 1=1 2=01 3=11 4=100 5=101 etc.

This just goes to prove that mathematicians shouldn't make jokes, as I was telling Pythagoras only yesterday.
Binary is based on 1's and 0's clearly hence binary (two digit) the number 2 in binary is represented by the four digits 0010 or in the joke "10" for short. in binary the first number starting with the left is equal to 8 then 4 then 2 then 1. so in the line 1111 the number represented is 15. while 1110 is only 14.
nona the britThere are 10 types of people in this world; those who understand binary and those who don't.

I think there are more than 10 types of people in this world; who would not understand the punch to laugh on this joke.

Anyways keep laughing even if there is nothing to laugh. Atleast u tried to make others laugh....it is a good deed.

There are 10 kinds of people in this world:

those who know this is a binary joke,

and those who don't,

and those who know it's actually a tertiary joke.

I saw this on a t-shirt at the MIT (don't ask me to tell you what MIT is) Co-Op the other day, and thought it was nifty. It helps if you know about number systems with base 2 (binary), 3 (tertiary), ... base 10 (decimal), ... To that degree, it's an insider joke.
