Oh, Happy Fibonacci Day!

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

I absolutely missed it.

Me too, actually!

Why 100? 8-13-21 is just 8 years away!

But, that one is not as nice as 11:23 on the May 8th of '13 ('13 being 2013, 2113, etc.) .

Of course, because here in Serbia we use the dd.mm.yyyy. format, tomorrow is even closer a Fibonacci day!

Gosh! Is it August already? Where did those days go?

To make today at 11.23 into Fibonacci minute: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13

dd:mm:yy is more common in the Uk too.

But we are all in different time zones which is why I used Universal time for the moment.

But I'll be away from my computer so someone else can 'claim the moment' if they want.

But, given the importance of Fibonacci in mathematics, maybe a minute is not long enough?

Anyway, Happy Fibonacci Day (2) !
