According to Wikipedia, 2,996 died on 9-11 (2,977 victims and 19 hijackers), while 1,833 people perished during Hurricane Katrina. These figures give us some interesting mathematical observations. Quoting: The count of all those who perished in both attacks (4,829) over the count of those who died on September 11 (2,996) is 1.612. I call this 9-11 / Katrina Ratio One. The ratio of the number of 9-11 deaths over the number of Katrina deaths is 2,996 / 1,833 which equals 1.634. I call this the 9-11 / Katrina Ratio Two. Compare both 9-11 / Katrina ratios to the value of phi (1.618) which is otherwise known as the Golden Ratio or the Golden Section. 9-11 / Katrina Ratio One differs from the Golden Ratio by a mere 0.38 percent, while the 9-11 / Katrina Ratio Two differs from the Golden Ratio by slightly over one percent. vader999 Which means they don't match. What's your point? There is nothing quite as compelling as a bad idea whose time has come... Thulsa |
