comment C++ why & how are virtual functions slower?
@JörgWMittag they are all interpreter stuff, and they are still slower than the binary code generated by C++ compilers

comment Why use other number bases when programming
@Joren I don't believe they read in stars the number of minutes in an hour :), but that now there is a misalignment between our time base and our numeration base, and that makes it more difficult to count time. An hour with 10 minutes and 10 seconds, or 100 minutes, or whatewer would have been more intuitive in our latin base-10 numeration system. Maybe it would be worth changing that ;)

comment Why use other number bases when programming
Talking about crazy bases, Babilonians are known to have used base 60 as their only math. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylonian_mathematics Imagine going to market and counting your money for 3 cabbages and some goat meat... On the other hand, it was really easy to count the time that way
