that about sums up my life.

Fibonacci's sequence:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55...

as you go further out into the sequence, the (N)th term divided by the (N-1)th term, or N/(N-1), approaches the Golden Ratio, represented by the Greek letter "phi".

the Golden Ratio is

a rectangle with dimensions of ratio phi has the unique property that if you remove the largest square section possible, you are left with another rectangle with dimensions of the same ratio as the original.

the number is also cool because if you square it, you get a 2 followed by all the exact same decimal places. if you take the inverse of the number, you get a 0 followed by all the same decimal places.

furthermore, objects containing this ratio are known to be pleasing to the eye for some reason. phi is a bad-ass number. it would kick the shit out of pi or e (two other irrational numbers) in a fight.
