Brian made these California Resistance mugs, sporting Jerry Brown’s promise to “launch our own damned satellite” — proceeds to Planned Parenthood.

China is engaged in a bizarre dystopian experiment to use social network ratings to punish political dissidence, “antisocial behavior” and noncomformity, using data pulled from many sources, including purchases on China’s major ecommerce networks like Alibaba; but you don’t have to be the Chinese government to spy on people with an extraordinary degree of creepy […]

Xnet, a wonderful Spanish activist group, has created the Anti-Corruption Complaint Box, a whistleblowing platform for the city of Barcelona that allows people to file anonymous claims in a Globalleaks repository, with their anonymity protected by Tor.

I have a television like that. I hate it.

Needs to have room for Alias DVD series.

Turns out the OÄNDLIG wardrobe I bought from Ikea is the same. I’ve been working on it for 3 years now, and the newest section doesn’t fit in my yard, even. When will this madness end?!

i think it’s cool :)

Reminds me o the no. 216 cabinet, with doors sized according to ISO sizes of paper: A1-A2-A3 etc.

This is not Modulor. Le Corbu cries in his grave (which is Modulor)

At the risk of being pedantic, these drawers seem to be in the Golden Ratio (phi) not Fibonacci. The ratios of successive Fibonacci numbers tend to phi in the limit.

Phi is defined to be the unique number such that if a rectangle’s sides have a ratio phi, and you remove a square based on the smaller side, the remaining rectangle’s sides have ratio phi. It is no less cool than the Fibonacci series, by the way; look it up.

At risk of being even more pedantic:

The drawer’s ratios are squares at 1, 1, 2 (smallest drawer built), 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 (largest drawer built), all of which are Fibonacci series numbers.

Here’s an image so you don’t have to look it up: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/93/Fibonacci_spiral_34.svg/180px-Fibonacci_spiral_34.svg.png

You’re right, my bad for not actually reading the text and just looking at the front view of the cabinet.

You let me be right on the internet!

Hats off to you, Sir.

At the risk of being evener morer pedantica, they’ve stuffed up the opening sequence of the Fibonacci series.

They’ve left a gap for the draw that is meant to represent 0, which in itself doesn’t make sense, and additionally the gap is smaller than the drawer that is meant to represent 1. There is no second drawer equal to 1.This makes it clear that drawer number 2, is not in fact twice the width of the drawer that represents 1, as it is only as wide as a single drawer representing 1 and the lesser space representing 0.

Additionally there are only 6 drawers, so even with the missing 1, they don’t reach 21, but rather 13.

This observation is what motivated my first post. However, if you assume that the smallest drawer shown is a 2, and that the hole represents two 1s stacked on top of each other, then all works out, except figuring out what happened to the two missing 1s.

I suspect the little girl had something to do with it.

That would go nicely with a Sierpinski carpet.

And to think, I’ve just been leaving my pebbles, twigs, and flower petals out on the ground in my yard like a slob!

And I raise you – My Squared-Square Cabinet!

That is nice. I just bookmarked the Make Math Monday article.
