Ron Wassink: My New Nunavut Plate Is Binary! | Inuit Nunangat Stories |
 I went to the licence office in Iqaluit to pick up my new licence plate for my Ford pickup truck. I've been going to theoffice daily for the past month to check on numbers. I washoping to get 000999. I was a day late and ended up with001011. I'm happy, and lucky. My plate representscomputer binary code. I did an internet search to seeif 001011 translates to English. No luck yet. However,I am positive this licence plate is my lottery win. No onein the world will have a plate that's binary. Add to thatthe new plate is supposed to have 25 stars representingthe communities of Nunavut. I counted 18 on mine.
