Even though they are both numbers and accountants are supposed to be good at numbers aren't they ?.

I wonder how many accountants can count in binary, octal, hexadecimal, let along do any maths in it.

I bet that the only other number base they, like everyone else uses and doesn't realise it is sexagesimal - Base 60 (which is used in clocks for obvious reasons).

This is ironic, given that they spend all their time worrying about "the end of time" - or at least the next the week, month, quarter, year, tax year, accounting period, etc.
