Subject: Decimial has set progress back -> Help spread the use of Hex!

Why don't people use hex in everyday math? Logically it makes more
sense. It's far more efficent, requires less concentration to use and
is extremely fast. The only reason we use decmial is for legacy
reasons. Sure, the majority of people have ten fingers / toes, but
basing our entire default number system on that is horribly offending
thoses without the prereuqiesit number of digits. That's besides the
point though. If we were brought up on hexadecimial instead of
decmial, just think how easier life would be! No having to change the
default radix on out Zilog assembler. No trouble converting to binary
and back. No problems memorising ASCII codes.
I for one vote we take the final step and move towards a true standard
numbers system. Combine the waring factions of roman and arabic and
use hex and the worldwide standard. This would be a big step towards
settleting the differences between that idiot bush and italy for
instance. Really though, The Roman empire may never have fallen if
they had joined the trojans and adopted base 16 as a symbol of peace.
Just think of the economic benefits this may have today!
I strongly believe that us, readers of technical newsgroups have to
intelligence and resourcenessfullness to band together in germany as a
bastion of hex, and gradually take over companies that refuse to
follow us. I of couse would be leader and you my loyal followers but
as hexians we would truly suceed! We would rule with an steel fist!
Finally news2020 I will make you a deal. Help me with my plan to
spread the use of base 16 and I will turn the radiation off. Now,
after we spread base 16 universally we will abolish the MSCE. It is
the biggest cause of suffering in the world, short of famine, disease
and n*sync. I will take over microsoft and bill gates will be my
JOIN THE HEXIANS!!!
