Hee! Yeah, I switched majors in undergrad from history to CS (I wanted to eat) then to math when I realized that (a) I sucked at debugging and (b) I enjoyed the math courses I was taking for CS more than I was enjoying the CS courses and (c) I liked pure math more than applications (except crypto; I have a soft spot for crypto, and even then math-side crypto is way abstracted from how it's implemented and used IRL).

It has always tickled me that the mathematician who invented binary numbers thought it was a pretty little bit of math with no possible application.
