Internet commenting done RIGHT!
Everyone who suffers from social anxiety needs a friend who will
- help them order food when it’s too scary
- walk with them through crowded places
- help them laugh it off when they make a mistake
- not get tired of answering “no, you’re not annoying, silly goose! You’re adorable and I love you” no matter how many times it’s needed
and if you’re that friend, bless u for being fab <3
If you are reading this, thank this woman. Her name is Grace Hopper, and she is one of the most under appreciated computer scientists ever. You think Gates and Jobs were cool? THIS WOMEN WORKED ON COMPUTERS WHEN THEY TOOK UP ROOMS. She invented the first compiler, which is a program that translates a computer language like Java or C++ into machine code, called assembly, that can be read by a processor. Every single program you use, every OS and server, was made possible by her first compiler.
Counting in binary
Instead of counting up to five on each hand, a binary system can be used to count up to 31 on one hand, and up to 1023 on two hands. This is done by using your fingers to represent increasing numbers, multiplying by two each time.
Once the numbers 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16 are assigned to the fingers, as above, different numbers can be represented by raising or tucking in the fingers. A raised finger represents its number being “on”, whereas a lowered finger represents its number being “off”.
For example, raising the thumb (1), the index finger (2) and the ring finger (8) shows a total of 1 + 2 + 8 = 11.
For higher numbers, exactly the same principle is used, by continuing to double the numbers used on the first hand: 32, 64, 128, 256, 512.
Alternatively, by placing your hand above a surface like a table, pressing the fingertip to the surface can be counted as “on”, which is useful both for the less dexterous and for avoiding having the number 4 misinterpreted by somebody else.
