There are only 10 types of people in the world:

Those who understand binary and those who don't.

The only person I've ever got to laugh at that joke was a college instructor of mine (he had a great sense of humor, obviously)....if you don't get it, the joke is that 25 in base ten (DECimal) is the same as 31 in base eight (OCTal). ha. ha.
