What Does 10 Mean?

10 means "Perfect."

The number 10 is often used online and in face-to-face chat to say that something is perfect (i.e., on a scale of one to ten it rates as ten).

In general chat, 10 out of 10 (10/10) is often awarded to very desirable people. For example:
  • Toni: Wow! Don't look now, but a definite 10 has just walked in.
  • Jo: (Looking, obviously.) Hmmm, your eyesight is a 5, but whatever you're drinking is definitely a 10. Order the same for me.
On a side note, the figures 1 (one) and 0 (zero) represent the number 2 (two) in binary (a method of mathematical expression which uses only two symbols). Suffice to say, there are 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary and those who don't.
