Today at 6am I made a joke about Endianness to @FireflyLeigh and it ruined our morning because I needed to spend an hour explaining the concept to her while she got increasingly angry that computers didn't standardize on something

@silverwizard I remember discovering the concept of endianness when I started to teach myself assembly. It took me longer to figure out what was going on than I'd like to admit.

@jlamothe I have never learned assembly, and probably should. But I have nerd parents.

And am aware of the horror of middle endian

@silverwizard I can't honestly say that I've *properly* learned it either. I know just enough to be dangerous.
