There Are 10 Types of People …

“There are only 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary and those who don’t.”

— Unknown.

Figure it out yet?

“10” in binary numerals equals “2” in decimal numerals, so when you read the sentence, pronounce “10” as “two.”

In all fairness, a number should have a subscript when its base differs from ten. In this case, it should be written 102. But that wouldn’t make for much of a joke then, would it?
