Point is the assertion that Angela is my female counterpart is incorrect.

I could link to a thread but I'm afraid that you'll start massacring posts. I'll look for some old internet sites, instead

Nope, but do you really think that kaboobly doo number actually makes a board look better?

Yes, but my chief artist does not agree...

Then why does your chief artist think that? Supposing I gave him a board with ratio 1.62 and the other with 1.618... Could he actually say one was more beautiful? Could he tell the difference?

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

Offline

Its a she.

The one with 1.62 is equally beautiful to the human eye but the one with 1.618 is the one which is actually more beautiful.

(Because I have found a definition of beauty and it is the golden ratio in a nutshell)

Hmmm, I have seen great beauty but I have never seen any female that is as beautiful as M nor as obedient.

I have to prepare for a meeting. See you later.

Why do you think she is beautiful or obidient?
