Forty lightbulbs are grouped into five groups of eight. Each bulb has a cable with a plug. There is a wall socket under each bulb. Some of the bulbs have a plug of the Schuko type (the standard in most European countries) at the end of the cable. Other bulbs carry plugs with other standards (Chinese, American, British, Indian, etc.) Trying to connect these bulbs would be impossible, since the wall socket that corresponds to them is the European type. Thus, bulbs with the European standard are turned on, whereas those with other standards are off.
The off and on bulbs represent a binary code that forms a word when interpreted as ASCII code. Lightbulbs that are off represent zeros; lit bulbs represent ones. The word they form is "unfit”.
