Count to 31 on One HandForget your abacus? Lose your calculator? Every geek should know how to use binary to count to 31 on one hand. It won't replace your slide rule, but it is an attention-getter. If you're familiar with binary you'll pick it up quickly.
If you're new to binary, this isn't really a whole new counting system, you just have to think back to elementary school when you learned to count in base 10. And yes, I am aware of the cultural significance of numbers 4, 13, and 20. :oP
