    11 is one more than 10. It is also than 3 in base 2. When you bring up the word “binary” base 2 comes to mind.

    Uranus is the 7th planet from the Sun.

    “[T]he Ideas of March”? Typo? Autocorrect? Or an intentional change to mean something along the lines of “the thoughts that we have in March”?

    If you meant “Ides” then you are referring to a specific day in March that is not the 11th. The Ides of March is March 15th.

    My pedantic comments go to 11!
