Important Birthdays

Call me crazy. I’m not that huge a fan of decimal. We use it, I accept it. Any time the leading tens or hundreds changes, we feel the need to celebrate it over the others. So, 20th, 30th, 40th… 100th are more important birthdays.

Oddly 16, 18, and 21 are also important. Well, 16 is 24 and the base of hexidecimal. 18 is 2*32. 21 is 3*7.

So I would like to celebrate the positive integer exponents of two… 25 (32), 26 (64), and maybe 27 (128 could be possible soon?) … as important birthdays. We could throw in some others such as 32 (9), 33 (27), 34 (81), 52 (25), 62 (36), 72 (49), (82 is 26 and 92 is 34), and of course 102 (100).

Nevermind… I’ll just call myself crazy…
