Hey, I'm pretty sure my life is worse so quit your moaning and do some work.

Remember kiddies: Life is and then you die.

A.
Oi, I just pulled my head out of the pile of discrete sh1t I created somewhere and I, apparently, don't fancy stuck my head back into the pile until at least tomorrow afternoon.

My life is NOT smiling on me at the moment. Mildly depressed, only mildly. But it could get worse pretty fast by following the curve of 1-e^x.

EDIT: My life is NOT smiling on me at the moment. How could I miss out the NOT :mad:. I'm going to kill myself...

Shuai, do you wanna book for Xmas formal anyway and come with me & Charlotte & whoever else?

Ellie........if you;'re reading.......we dont get beverly again in E&B.. but she's popping up in cells later on! Yeah! Look out for me tomorrow, when I'll obviously be winning the wine
:eek: would you look at that post! post number 11111! Is it a prime?

There were apparent 54 places left at the time I checked. I probably wouldn't bother. If there are (obiviously there are) many people in the Hall, I'll just end up eating my food quietly and not saying anything...

to knock someone up means
a) to knock on their door (I think this might be a term more local to Notts, im not sure)
b) To get someone pregnant

repeated use of fingers in such fashion is not allowed, i.e. you can not count up to 5 and put that 5 aside somewhere in memory and start counting another 5. In another word, if another geek seeing you counting in such fashion he/she should be able to tell which number you are at without having to hear your voice.

I wrote out the numbers 1 - 31 on the pc, then pointed at them with one finger as I counted. :cool:

I've been doing it since I was 9, for some reason my teacher decided to teach it to the class. I used to be pretty quick at it. Of course I didn't really understand the usefulness of binary or unary then but I do now. I do recall thing number systems with different bases were fun at 10, the clock with a base 12 is quite fun for a ten year old.

You can use both hands and count to even higher numbers... and if someone else is happy to lend you their hands... Gosh! you can count up to some rediculously high number with relatively small numbers of fingers :eek:

I suggest we attempt to soup them instead.

Guys the way you normally count on your fingers is in unary, given you fingers can be in two states (either up or down) then you can use them to represent a number in binary. Conventionally we take the least significant binary digit to be the right thumb as numbers are read from right to left. As you have five fingers on your hand you can count up to 2^5 - 1.
