The Golden Ratio = 1.61803399

As we approach Pi Day (after all it is Sunday, 3-14), I though I’d give a shout out to another magical proportion, the Golden Ratio 1.61803399. Too bad there is no January the 61st. Apparently, Marc Umile (a guy with way too much free time) holds 10th place (What! only 10th place!? who is #1?) in the world for pi memorization — he typed out 15,314 digits from memory in 2007. While Marc continues to memorize Pi, I prefer to appreciate the fine proportions of Phi as exhibited in the Fibonacci spiral below.
