Hi,

[This is really just for fun but i guess this would be an infinite iteration problem].

I see this a lot:
"There are 10 types of people in the world those that understand binary and those that dont".

But now putting that into decimal and avoiding the funny, it reads:
"There are 2 types of people in the world those that understand binary and those that dont".

But that said, isnt it really true that even that is not right? That's because with that said there must be 3 types of people in the world:
"There are 3 types of people in the world, those that understand binary and those that dont and those that point out that there are 3 types of people in the world".

But that said, isnt it really true that even that is not right? That's because with that said there must be 4 types of people in the world:
"There are 4 types of people in the world, those that understand binary and those that dont, and those that point out that there are 3 types of people in the world, and those that point out that there are 4 types of people in the world".

But then that said, ......

Cutting it to the quick.... Its just 1 as binary has two states... But wheres the humour in that...
Maybe some people are a qubit or Non-binary. Unrecognizably weird at any state they're in.

However, quantum mechanics allows the qubit to be in a coherent superposition of both states/levels simultaneously, a property which is fundamental to quantum mechanics and quantum computing.
