Binarily We Roll Along…

If you were born after November 11, 1911, and before the start of this millenium, then you’ve experienced 36 binary dates in your lifetime; there were 9 each in 2000, 2001, 2010, and 2011. I’ve collected several binary jokes, and I was going to save them until the next binary date… but since that’s not until January 1, 2100 — a date for which I most likely I won’t be around; and if I am, God help me if I’m still trolling out math jokes on this blog — I figure I better share these jokes now.

I don’t know how many jokes are contained in this post, but you can count them. Luckily, counting in binary is as easy as 1, 10, 11, …

Perhaps my favorite binary joke:

01000001 00100000 01101101 01100001 01101110 00100000
01110111 01100001 01101100 01101011 01110011 00100000
01101001 01101110 01110100 01101111 00100000 01100001
00100000 01100010 01110010 01100001 00101110

A binary is a two-headed canary.

When Paul asked Saul how much he’d pay for the following book, Saul answered, “Two bits!”

The above silliness is a follow-up to the Gauss® jeans ad that I created and the Leibniz jeans ad that was posted at Rhapsody in Numbers.
