Well, you might have written only 8 programs in
C, but your OS is in C, and almost all the
tools are as well.

Or, you might have done binary/bitwise
arithmetics only 2^3 times, but even typing
this message, this has happened qudrazillions

(Actually, I have no idea how many times it has
happened. But because I asked, it is probably
either really low or really high.)
