The Fibonacci Sequence

Post by bah » March 31st, 2011, 9:28 pm

One of the reasons the Fibonacci sequence is well known in popular culture is its association with the prolific breeding of rabbits. This is testament to the rabbit's exceptional egg laying abilities.

Unless you're telling me that the Easter Bunny isn't real....but the chance of that happening is the same as you telling that Santa isn't real either, HA.

Santa is the biggest lie, after the memory foam mattress and the Olive-sided flycatcher.

I ♥ the Fibonacci sequence. Mostly because I love Phi. So the Fibonacci sequence is like a sibling-in-law.
