There are 100110 slots in an American roulette wheel (European roulette has no zero, so uses only 100101 slots).

In the Bible, 101000 gets all the love (days and nights, years in the wilderness), but Mozart wrote 101001 symphonies, and the 101001st (the "Jupiter") is one of the greatest.

This is easy! One, two, three, four.... All that changes is how you represent it in numerals.

Thank you for threadshitting.

Now, to keep the thread count correct, I have to post two:

Those little records with the big holes are called 101101s.

And there are 101110 major peaks of the Adirondack mountain range. People who have climbed all of them are called "101110ers".

Johann Sebastian Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier is informally known as The 110000 because it consists of a prelude and a fugue in each major and minor key, for a total of 110000 pieces.
