What looks like binary, but isn't?

Whilst doing a CTF, I came across a crypto challenge similar to the following that looked like binary:


After it failed decoding AS binary, I tried the Magic option on CyberChef which failed, and several variations of the Baconian cipher - Which also failed.

After much searching and many failings, I came across Spoon - An esoteric programming language whose code looks like binary. A quick Google search led me to this online interpreter from dCode. Pasting in the text and clicking the "Execute" button got me the result I needed!
