"Riddle me this, Batman"...

since when does 23 equal "several dozen"?

 

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/las-vegas-shooting-gunman-fired-at-tanks-filled-with-jet-fuel/ar-AAsVDMh?li=BBnb7Kz

 

I'm guessing, that the author of this article is a liberal educated, new math, millennial. When I went to school, 12= a dozen, 24= two dozen, and 36+ = several dozen.

 

Don't bring 23 doughnuts to the party and claim you supplied "several dozen". :o

Fibonacci Series

a series of numbers in which each number ( Fibonacci number ) is the sum of the two preceding numbers. The simplest is the series 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, etc.

Found in many places, such as number of spirals in pine cones, pineapples, sunflower heads, etc   Also the ratio of two successive numbers approaches phi, the golden ratio.

 

Today is 11 23

 

 

Fibonacci considers the growth of an idealized (biologically unrealistic) rabbit population, assuming that: a newly born pair of rabbits, one male, one female, are put in a field; rabbits are able to mate at the age of one month so that at the end of its second month a female can produce another pair of rabbits; rabbits never die and a mating pair always produces one new pair (one male, one female) every month from the second month on. The puzzle that Fibonacci posed was: how many pairs will there be in one year?

  • At the end of the first month, they mate, but there is still only 1 pair.
  • At the end of the second month the female produces a new pair, so now there are 2 pairs of rabbits in the field.
  • At the end of the third month, the original female produces a second pair, making 3 pairs in all in the field.
  • At the end of the fourth month, the original female has produced yet another new pair, the female born two months ago produces her first pair also, making 5 pairs.

At the end of the nth month, the number of pairs of rabbits is equal to the number of new pairs (which is the number of pairs in month n − 2) plus the number of pairs alive last month (n − 1). This is the nth Fibonacci number

 

 

this must be you ( @kmealy ) in the foreground...

Are you into fox hunting Stick?

I'm guessing there were (are) no leftovers for us<_<

Cal

 

no on the hunting...

the critters didn't get a crumb or lick of anything...

 

and the adage of try and tell somebuddy else's dog what to do sure has a lot of merit...
