A Few Analogies Concerning Binary...That May or May Not Be True

Taking a break from the career change series, I decided to write words about binary.

1) Binary is easier to read if you have significant experience reading manga.

2) Binary is the equivalent of very low-grade beef, i.e. not meant for human consumption. Even futuristic robots struggle with it at times.

3) A byte is binary's 8-piece chicken (or chik'n for the plant-based crew) nugget.

4) Binary may have German origins, but based on the massive amount of 8 piece nuggets it consumes, it's safe to assume it's been a naturalized US citizen for quite some time.

In Conclusion
