it's how computers talk, stupid! if you tried to communicate in binary it would look something like the example shown below. here's something interesting. 0001 = 1 0010 = 2 0011 = 3 0100 = 4 0101 = 5 0110 = 6 0111 = 7 now tell me how to write the numbers 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 , 15, and 16. if you can do that, you can read binary. GRATS! here's the point of it. by using only ones and 0's you can represent any base 10 number (what we use as humans) oh by tbe way, read snow crash for an idea of why it's a good thing that people's brains cannot directly read binary.

A simplified 0 or 1 version of the 1-10 scale used for rating a person's looks. System is most effectively used when the majority of a population is substandard
Noah: What would you give that girl on a scale of 1 to 10?
Jacurtic: 1 to 10?? Fuck that. Here in Detroit, we use binary; 0 is "no way", and 1 is "good enough"

Adjective.

Originally derived from a system of rating women that was easy to administer and generally not influenced by the amount of alcohol consumed. Rather than a scale from 0 to 10 (for instance), the binary system breaks it down to a 0 (meaning ugly and would not sleep with them) or 1 (meaning attractive enough to sleep with them). It should be very easy to administer the system to a point where you should be able to walk through a room and point and yell 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, etc. The word entered popular vernacular as an a adjective in November 2008 in Sydney Australia where anyone rated as a 1 was simply called binary.
Blue dress at 9 o'clock is binary.
