Fibonacci does other things than just the golden ratio. You can obviously use it to expand powers of a binomial expression, but it's also useful in other areas. Here's an example where it's used to manage data structures: http://goo.gl/6s7ENh (see the section on "Rebalancing") or http://goo.gl/jUKuv (see the section on releasing relationships)

Windows programmers: what is so hard about writing comprehensible button labels? Is it that painful to create a dialog box where I don't have to squint at your mangled English to figure out what the buttons do? If a button is going to restart my damned computer, label it Restart. It really is that easy.

On the plus side, the pizza is simple but good, and they've got a large menu and friendly staff. They put way too much cheese on some sandwiches.
