    it is a good thing that modern society uses arabic(indian) numbers, especially zero.

    Tell that to the NFL and their nefarious Super Bowl numbering.

    For cycling, in-line skating & increasingly skiing, helmets are almost compulsory; so why is ice-skating different?

    C’mon, Jef; do you expect us to believe that anyone under about eighteen has even heard of Roman numerals?

    Not to mention movies and their copyright dates! “Copyright… 1528?!”

    There’s so much wrong with your ‘roman numeral’ I don’t know where to start.

    I loved reading and writing the numbers out from the 80s and 90s. M (1000) CM L(50) XC IV so you have MCMLXCIV. That’s a real number and about as complicated as they get. Not hard to understand once you break it down. 1994.

    Not sure how I did that, but if you mouse over the underlined roman numerals, it details what they are.

    Those paramedics can be tough… they’ll probably only give him an IV.

    I would need a helmet for ice skating. Maybe a motorcycle helmet.

    So much for a figure ten.

    101100011000011010100110 would be 11,634,342. And 1994 would just be MCMXCIV, with no L (or 11111001010 in binary).

    …and for defunctdoormat…
    Super Bowl 47 in binary would be:
    101111

    Haha, thanks! No pain, no gain? ( I’m thinking your new avatar would tend to agree. :·)
