Eight

This is an idea for a List sketch.

Pretty much, its going off the notion of "Base 8 is like base 10, if you're missing two fingers". So what would be different if we only had 8 fingers?

Current ideas:
There are 8 commandments: its actually ok to bear false witness against your neighbour, or to covet your neighbours house, wife or x-box 360.
There were only 8 plagues of egypt, which didn't really scare the egyptians enough to "let my people go"
a kilobyte would actually be 1000 bytes.

I'd like to use less science stuff, and more look at stories that predominantly use the number 10, change it to 8, and make it happen. Ideally, this would be a sketch which uses the stage and the juliets, moving between mini-scenes to make up our list.
