You are assuming the base is not 13.

"I've always said there was something fundamentally wrong with the universe." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hi...f_the_Universe seems to confirm the erroneous output. But yeah, never mind the author's intent, designing for base 13 is a much simpler explanation because it's so easy to do with binary, not.

happens. See also Murphy's Law.

If you don't care about the universe and everything (who does) the following might aphorisms may help.

Life is a four-letter word.
Life is a sexually transmitted terminal disease.
Life is like a sewer: what you get out of it depends on what you put into it.
Life is like an alimentary canal --- it doesn't matter what you put into it you only get two things out of it, and one of those is hot air.

Life. Don't talk to me about life.

Laugh and the world laughs at you. Crying doesn't help.

Oh! Oh! can't you see? My life is a misery and I'm at the start of a very big downer.
