Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

You bet!! Depicted here is a:

  • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
  • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
  • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
  • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….

Tumblr Tuesday: Googly EyesThe Dust Bowl era of the 1930s was brought to an end with the introduction of one simple tool: the googly eye. Today we celebrate.
Googly Eye BooksYou might find no greater comfort than reclining in your chaise longue, glass of pinot in hand, indulging in Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostgooglyeyevsky. 
Project GooglyThere’s lowercase-a “art” and there’s uppercase-A “Art” and then there’s all-capitals “ART” and then there’s Project Googly.
Metal Albums with Googly EyesCounterintuitive to the metal aesthetic, but wookit wittle Lars Ulrich. Wook it him.  
Googly Eyed SurpriseA mint-condition issue of the acclaimed comic Mars Attacks the Holidays is now ruined by googly eyes. Is nothing sacred?
Googly Eyes on My StuffImagine a world of sentient onion rings. How they screamed in the deep fryer, how they shrieked as your first bite crunched into their crisped skin.
