Anyone have an idea how to do this? In MATLAB, a simple: echo myFun on; would be the answer.

Always have such a strong taste for self-referential systems, recursive stuff, paradoxical logic.

Fun Fibonacci Puzzle

The key to this "Missing Square Puzzle" is that neither of the 13×5 "triangles" is truly a triangle, because what appears to be the hypotenuse is bent.

In other words, the "hypotenuse" does not maintain a consistent slope, even though it may appear that way to the human eye. Overlaying the hypotenuses from both figures results in a very thin parallelogram, which then gets folded up to demonstrate that it has an area of exactly one grid square, which accounts for the "missing" area.

According to Martin Gardner, this particular puzzle was invented by a New York City amateur magician, Paul Curry, in 1953. However, the principle of a dissection paradox has been known since the start of the 16th century. The integer dimensions of the parts of the puzzle (2, 3, 5, 8, 13) are successive Fibonacci numbers, and leads to the exact unit area in the thin parallelogram. Many other geometric dissection puzzles are based on a few simple properties of the Fibonacci sequence.

The missing square puzzle is an optical illusion often used in mathematics classes to help students reason about geometrical figures, or rather to teach them to not reason by making assumptions from using figures, but only using the textual description and math principles to deduce the answer.

So this is another brilliant example of the Russell's Paradox!
Be different

Suggestions for the New Year

In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different. Think different (or gramatically correct 'Think differently') was an advertising slogan for Apple in 1997 created by the advertising agency TBWA, Los Angeles.
Here is the text written by Rob Siltanen with participation of Lee Clow:

"Hereís to the crazy ones.
The misfits.
The rebels.
The troublemakers.

The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
Theyíre not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you cannot do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones,
We see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world,
Are the ones who do."

An outstanding representative of thinking differently was Albert Einstein, the first actor in Apple's 'Think Different' video. Both, Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs, shared the main intention of the 'Think Different' campaign and both used an iPhone to share their ideas with the world.

You don't believe it?

Seriously folks, just look at the image, it's no fake. Unsurprisingly Einstein didn't use a device running on Android. You may ask why and the simple answer can be found in Albert's and Steve's common priorities:

Focusing, Simplicity.

Steve told us ...
"I'm convinced that about half of what seperates the successfull entrepreneurs from the non successful ones is pure perseverance."

and Albert ...
"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction."

Unlike most CEOs, Steve Jobs was committed to his uniform of a black mock turtleneck, blue jeans and New Balance sneakers.
With his unusual yet unchanging way, Jobs was in the line of many other famous personal brands including Albert Einstein, who always dressed the same.

A trademark look makes you memorable and distinctive.
President Obama gives us the justification for smart brand dressing:

“You’ll see I wear only gray or blue suits. I’m trying to pare down decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what I’m eating or wearing."

The simple act of making decisions degrades one’s ability to make further decisions.

Conclusion ...

Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
(Cecil Beaton)

and ...

Steve Jobs and Albert Einstein are just two examples of outstanding paragons, admittedly in quite different work environments but with lots of similarities in their vital interests.
