    Actually, there are 10 types of people. Those that know binary, those that don't, and those that confuse binary with ternary.

    I think I need to get my coat......

    Nope, you've lost me!

    EDIT: unless the joke is that there is no "4" in binary?

    More or less, plus the general disruption of the clichéd 1 to 10 scale, which if written in binary is actually a decimal 1 to 2.

    Not that explaining it actually makes it funny, mind!

    Explaining XkcD cartoons never makes them funny.
    They are only any good if you get them yourself, personally, on first read through.

    Especially the one that ends with Don Quixote in sillouhette upon a hillside...you know the one I mean.

    Thank heavens we only have to deal with numbers!

    I also read whilst looking at binary that the Babylonians used a base 360 numbering system... ouch!
