Sounds like we need a few more categories:

- those that think they understand binary but don't?

- those that don't care?

At any rate, I'm pretty sure it goes:

00 = zero

01 = ONE, base ten (the 'normal' system for most people)

10 = TWO, base ten

11 = THREE, base ten

100 = FOUR, base ten

I'm pretty sure that's right. I counted on my nostrils.

Hmm...how do they get them up in the air?

And is there beverage service?

"Nutmeg is extremely poisonous if injected intravenously."

I wonder who paid for that study...The Cinnamon Advancement Society ?
