Curious about Binary and Society

Yesterday I talked to a friend and tried to make him understand binary. He needs this because he is attending school again for his new Job. After hours of explaining him why and how binary is used ne finaly gave up(He is more a creativ guy, drawing, painting, making music etc.) shouting : "Can't I just use my hands like when I was a little learning the decimal sytem?"

Then I realised it. After years of remembering the pattern of ones and zeros I forgot that it is possible and a very good way to explain binary.(stupid me :P)

In the hand method(wait..what?) the thumb is the one, the index fingers is two, the middle finger 4, the ring finger is 8 and the pinky has the value of 16. Adding the values of the Fingers gives you the number(as you already know^^). Using both hands you could count up to 1.024, a huge difference to the normal count up to ten with decimal.

So now to my real question:
In Wikipedia I found that a system like binary was discovered many times ago, the oldest to be found was in India, developed 2300 years ago. That starts me thinking...what would have happend if the europeans discovered it by the time and used it and abolish the decimal system? Would Society be significantly be changed? Would mankind have been developed faster? If we would, would it make our society better ,because of the technological advantages, or would it be worse, because of the monachy which made the world unable to work together and the technological development which would give us the deadliest weapons a lot earlier(the atom bomb in the 15th century?)?

In my opinion the mankind would have developed faster. Computer would have been developed earlier and thus the technological developement would be quicker. I think binary could have safed us 200 years and remembering Moor's law we would have had passed the speed of light in computers about 80 Years ago.

Yes I have a optimistic view of life ;)

Thanks to my new followers(and the old ones as well :))!
I would like to give a movie recommendation but I think I need to live up to the name of the blog. Don't worry, there are some in the pipeline ,some I like and some I don't like(Tron: Legacy >:().

First of all: Facebook fuck yeah!(not really)
Game recommendation: Backyard Monsters
It is a mix of tower defense, classical strategy games like warcraft 2 and a browser game. Like in every browser game the time to build and upgrade is rather long but okay. You are able to attack other player(the strategy). You need to find a perfect way so their towers won't kill all your monsters before you get their ressources. Different Tower places need different ways of attacking and different kind of monsters.
Other player are also able to attack you , so defending your base is a big part aswell. You need to build towers and arrange them so they will defend your silos and mines.

The style is fun and kind of weird. On the pictures in the hatchery the look like real monsters but in the game they look kind of cute...?:)
actual game:
As a facebook game it's surprisingly complex and definitely worth a try. So go and check it out(I command you to :D)
Another question:
Are there more facebook games that are this awesome or worth a try?
Most of the time the people play "my fancy zoo"-stuff, but thats just boring.

PS: Yes, we watched the extended version of LotR at the marathon. If we do something we do it right ;)

Home...finally :D

I am so exhausted

Yesterday a friend called me and asked me if i wanted to make a Lord of the Rings marathon(all three movies). So now I am finally home after 11 hours of LotR(even watched the credits, did you know that the official fanclub members are listed?). It was awesome

So as a movie recommendation today : Watch movies with friends. It is just more fun and not that hard to accomplish. Do it on a monthly basis and riff them=lazy fun :D

now off to the bed
