    Wow My son just rattled them off to me 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21... ""In mathematical terms, the sequence Fn of Fibonacci numbers is defined by the recurrence relation [​IMG] with seed values[3] [​IMG] ""

    They are also found in natural objects like flowers and The pattern in a Nautilus shell. The first writings about them were in Sanskrit....

    Wikipedia article on it the above quote is from that article

    I cannot imagine being able to do any of it in my head.....

    I do watch the Ted Talks occasionally but right now my sound has gremlins in it... Pretty interesting stuff...

    I am so happy to hear everyone's alright. I saw the news and immediately thought of you all with family over in PI. It's been a while since I could check the thread so I was worried. Did a quick read to catch up and was relieved to see it didn't hit you guys too badly.

    its hard to believe that just 150 miles from my home in the Philippines there are more than ten thousand dead from that devastating storm.

    it had the force of a type 3 tornado but instead of being 1 mile across it was 300

    the storm surge was like a tsunami, many stories high

    how could a country with such limited resources prepare for such calamity

    no word from Sibuyan i'm guessing the cell towers are not working at the monent
    Marily is healing up, pain level is down to about a 2

    now about those pigs OZ
    1st what will 120 pigs smell like?
    i think i would go for about 1/2 that # & see how things work
    as far as a 5 ton truck goes
    i used own a tractor trailer & i had to lay out $25,000 to maintain the truck & trailer
    now granted i would drive 100,000 miles a year but my point is
    large trucks require large outlays of cash at times to keep them up & running
    around here 4 new tires on the back of a dump truck will set you back about $2,000

    i think i would find a local guy who already owned a truck that would do the job
    give the guy a free pig & maybe buy some fuel for him
    much cheeper than owning a heavy truck
