Well... I was able to translate the binary into hex in my head and recognize the values as being in the ASCII range. However, the only character I recognized without looking up the translation table was the space character:
ASCII ' ' = 20 (hex) = 00100000 (bin).
The theory of evolution by cumulative natural selection is the only theory we know of that is in principle capable of explaining the existence of organized complexity.

What your family didn't mark their hard boiled eggs with
pencil scratches that couldn't be read, or did they use
crayon?
