    No, it says `Shi, that T symbol is how they write the number, just like we say ten, but we write 10.
    Also this is Japanese

    If those are the phonetic pronunciations on the right, it is not Japanese. I don`t know much Japanese, but I know how to count to ten and that ain`t it.

    No, it is Chinese. The Japanese written language does stem from Chinese though, so 1-10 in Chinese and 1-10 in Japanese does look the same. However, this image included a phonetic guide which is clearly meant to indicate Chinese.

    I mean, we don`t call 1-2-3 English numerals, do we? No, it`s the Arabic numeral system.

    "I only count with one finger, using the binary system."

    That only allows you to get to one... you need 4 fingers to get to 10
