Well, we once had a prof who counted from 0. After he had drewn a large
diagram on the board he wanted to make sure that it was indeed 12 states
as stated in the caption. So he went: 0, 1, 2, ... , 11. Hmmm... I've
seem to have missed one. Let's count again: 0, 1, 2 , .... 11

He really couldn't figure out what was wrong until somebody pointed him
out that he should start counting at 1. That was really hilarious,
