If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family Anatidae on our hands. –Douglas Adams

I recommend that digits in this system be practical to draw, given that (with the possible exception of the first system) none of these systems allow numbers to actually be written in a reasonable amount of time.

Re: Lets invent some fictional numbering systems.

Next base is factorial base 12 (so it can express numbers up to 12!-1, or 479001599).

IIRC, number 6 was just number 8, without the yellow dots. I'll go and fix that later on an actual computer.

So the first two-digit number is:

(not sure how this thread's rules work when an individual digit is not a valid number!)

Next: base 28
