You have these as podcasts?

Just keep posting, and someday something magical will appear to you.  When that day comes, but not before then, look up Moonshake's posts and all will be revealed.

Didn't that occur for NJL about 120 post ago?

What, do you think I can count?  I actually come from a culture with a base 1 numerical system.

Hey Steve, is that even possible?  I don't know what I'm talking about.

1 = 1
2 = 1
3 = 1
4 = 1
...
50 = 1
...
120 = 1

That's about right.

NB: I have no idea about this stuff, either.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Nice try, buffcoat, but there are no ones in a base 1 system

1=0
2=0
3=0
4=0
.

17=0
18=0
19=0

But what does 120 equal?

I have revised my opinion. I now think

1 = 0
2 = 00
3 = 000
4 = 0000
5 = 00000
. . .
120 = 000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

You're welcome.

@Dave - What does it say about my life that I actually counted all your zero's, lost my spot half way through and instead of giving up, counted again? I appreciate your attention to detail.
This podcast is usually funny

Thanks, but I am still not sure if my logic works. It seems like the math equivalent of one hand clapping.

So what's a base 2 numerical system look like?  I suppose I could just IMDB it, but I'm enjoying this pleasant derailment, dere.
Oh, good heavens. I didnít realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the OíConnor family.

Base 2 is all 1s and 0s, what most people think of as digital. The idea is that the first digit to the left of the decimal represents the number of 2s to the zero power; the second one is 2s to the first power, and so on.

If you start counting starting at 1 in base 2, the count goes like this

1
10
11
100
101
110
111
1000
1001
1010
1011
1100
1101
1110
1111
 and so on. The last number represents "regular" 15, because it's

1*2^3+1*2^2+1*2^1+1*2^0, or 8+4+2+1 = 15

If you wanted to represent 85, it's 64+16+4+1=2^6+2^4+2^2+2^0, and you write it

1010101

Had enough?

I'd like to Nth the recommendation for Wiretap-- I just started listening last week, and it's pretty great. Howard is hilarious.

I'm just waiting for this whole thread to break into binary code.

I occurs to me now that I've never had any idea what "base [number]" actually means.  I guess I made something up at some point and then just stuck with it.

It just refers to how many fingers you use to count. Computers have 2 and nature has 2.71828....

Base 3 uses powers of three, for example

1,2,10,11,12,20,21,22,100,101,102,110,111,112,120,121,122

That last one is equivalent to "regular" 17, since it's 1*3*3+2*3*1+2.

I know about things other than math too. Oh wait
