    the future is bleak, uncertain, beautiful
    tomorrow they might come and arrest us all
    only if you listen closely can you hear the machines
    beneath the side walk whispering
    the machines beneath the side walk are
    always whispering
    strive to listen close
    please, try to be free
    don't be afraid
    the end of the world will never come

    In the ring of integers with the usual addition and multiplication: 1+1=2. Consult the Peano Axioms if you want a reason.

    In the ring of integers modulo 2: 1+1=0.

    Final answer: Just go with 2 if you don't want to play around with basic algebra.
    And don't read the stuff Phenoca posted.

    1+1=0b10. youll always confuse yourself when you use a different formula when it comes to basic math.
