Nice !   :)

I've seen that "base 60" thing before, but it wasn't 'represented' in base 60 by the Babylonians it was 'represented' in base 10 (so they appear to have counted in base 10, but repeated at 60 rather than 100 - a mix of the two) .. giving rise to a lot of interpretations that differ from that video

[EDIT]

Okay I'm getting sucked in, and I hated maths (yanks please disregard the 's') in school .. even though I did 'reasonably' well at it.

It's not the maths so much that interests me here, it's the written history (and peoples interpretation .. for 'interpretation' read 'guess') that fascinates me, and the way these 'guesses' are often misleadingly quoted as scholarly fact.

It's always funny what makes it to a fact. Not just math, science in general. Our tongue has different zones for different tastes (we learned that in primary school) well try it with a drop of lemon juice, doesn't matter where you put it. It took a long time until the adults realized what every kid thought after it tried that :D And we all tried it, but our teacher didn't believe us (I can still remember that).

By the way welcome numbertheory345 ;)
