Fibonacci Friday Dave Shaffer (Arizona) Posting Freak Posts: 776 Threads: 25 Joined: Jun 2007 06-09-2013, 10:31 PM As I was reviewing financial data from last week, I realized that last Friday (6/7/13 or 7/6/13 - depending on your continent) might be loosely called a Fibonacci day - i.e. the sum of the day and month added up to the last two digits of the year. Then, I realized the real Fibonacci day for 2013 was a month ago: 5/8/13 (or 8/5/13), but alas not a Friday, so not alliterative. These numbers are from the real Fibonacci series (and best expressed, of course, if you are using a US-style date system!). The next real Fibonacci day won't be until August 13, 2021 (with, of course, some pseudo-days like last Friday before then). After that, you have to wait until the next millennium for the next true Fibonacci day: Jan 1, 3002!

As a side note, in the US, PI is roughly equal to 3.41 Paul Dale Posting Freak Posts: 3,229 Threads: 42 Joined: Jul 2006 06-10-2013, 03:19 AM My son's birthday and my wedding anniversary that day.
