He's an example of the anti-arabic-numerals-taught-in-schools crowd.

It got him on FOX news.  Mission accomplished.

This is kind of an aside, but how would you express a binary number with Roman numerals?

Lots of ones and .....

Gee, I guess besides reducing the Greek numeral set of 26 down to 10, and fixing the more obvious problems with Roman numerals,  we also owe the Arab's a huge debt of gratitude for that tiny little hole they put in the number line!  0. 

Or ever try to multiply Roman numerals?   We were taught one method in 5th grade summer school (NOT in Oklahoma!) and it was painful....here is a tutorial to help with that...

Got the poll asking who thinks we shouldn't force teaching Arabic numerals in school.  57% agree!   S M H !!

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Probably the same hoaxters that got people to beliieve the OK sign was something evil.



The OK symbol is a perfect example of finding the right balance between reporting while trying not to amplify an obvious 4chan troll. Launched on 4chan as “Operation O-KKK,” the OK symbol’s goal was simple: spread it enough as an anti-Semitic gesture, both online and offline, and hope the media picked up on the campaign. A document was posted on 4chan, as reported by The Boston Globe, instructing members to effectively troll the mainstream public until it became a thing people couldn’t ignore.

“[W]e must flood Twitter and other social media websites . . . claiming that the OK hand sign is a symbol of white supremacy,” the document reads. “Leftists have dug so deep down into their lunacy. We must force [them] to dig more, until the rest of society ain’t going anywhere near that [expletive].”

The issue, according to Segal, is that it’s impossible to prove intent. Reporting it as a blatant anti-Semitic symbol plays into the 4chan trolls’ game, but ignoring that some self-identified white nationalists are using the gesture is equally harmful. The answer is still unclear, but it helps explain why niche memes and radicalization attempts are on the front pages of The New York Times, The Washington Post, or The Boston Globe.
