Monday Morning Question

Q: Why do mathematicians often confuse Christmas and Halloween?

A: Because Oct 31 = Dec 25

if you think I've lost my mind, you are right. But not for this question.
Oct = octal, you know, base 8
Dec = decimal, base 10, counting with your fingers....

I stole this question from Wicked Thoughts

A follow on to this question is the statement:
There are 10 types of people.
Those who understand binary and those who don't.

Hopefully this will qualify for my geek moment of the week and I can get on with my life.
