From Golden Ratio to golden arse

In mathematics, two quantities are in the golden ratio φ (phi, or 1.6180339887...) if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities.

Geometrically, the golden ratio represented as a line divided into two segments a and b, such that the entire line is to the longer a segment as the a segment is to the shorter b segment.

Expressed algebraically, for quantities a and b, with a > b

Many artists and architects have proportioned their works to approximate the golden ratio - especially in the form of the golden rectangle, in which the ratio of the longer side to the shorter is the golden ratio - believing this proportion to be aesthetically pleasing.

In geometry, a golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral whose growth factor is the golden ratio φ (phi). That is, a golden spiral gets wider (or further from its origin) by a factor of φ for every quarter turn it makes.

Here is the figure of an approximate and true Golden Spirals. The green spiral is made from quarter-circles tangent to the interior of each square, while the red spiral is a Golden Spiral. Overlapping portions appear in yellow. The length of the side of one square divided by that of the next smaller square is the golden ratio φ (phi).

Now, what do you get when you put 2 golden spirals together? ... A most aesthetically pleasing Golden Arse !

All very well, you say. But what can you do with a Golden Arse? Ah, you must check out this link ==>

Income Tax Query - Golden Arse is the explanation

"Hello, is this Miss Singleton?"

"Yes, it is."

"Miss Singleton, this is John Smith, your tax accountant. I must inform you that your tax statement was rejected. They say that your salary and your possessions are incompatible. Your salary as a secretary is too low for you to be able to afford a luxury apartment, a new Mercedes-Benz, expensive clothing, jewelry, vacations in Europe, etc."

"Oh, and what can I do about it Mr. Smith?"

"Well, let's do the following: Send me a recent copy of your principal source of income, and I'll see what I can do with it."

"Very well Mr Smith. I am making a photocopy of it now, and I will email it to you shortly."

Well, she must have the Golden Arse ... click on following link for an explanation ==>

Landslide over a highway in Taiwan

An entire hill slid over National Highway No 3 close to Keelung in north Taiwan.
The landslide happened on 2010-04-25 and I was on this highway few days earlier. Jesus ... that was too close for comfort.
