    I do like how Frazz is wearing a shirt with a Fibonacci spiral on it.

    I thought this was cute. Of course, I was a math major in a different life.

    Oh, and I’m pedantic in this one, so it appealed to me on many levels.

    I missed the spiral, but got the rest of the joke.

    So the “golden” chips are a call out to the golden ratio?

    If you are a fan of the Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe, you know that it’s really ‘pendantic’. ;-)

    This comic is often pedantic.

    One of my favorite bumper stickers: “I am NOT pompous. I am pedantic. There is a difference.”

    Like Some Old Guy, I thought it was cute. Then again, I was a math major in another life (and, I’m afraid, pedantic in this one…)

    I was never a math major, but I do work for the SGU and I’m certainly pedantic.

    I haven’t read Frazz in a while, but this strip reminds me why I did.

    Me, three: old & pedantic, was a math major, enjoyed this comic!

    Yep. I was only a math major until I dropped out, and then majored in computer science when I went back part time a few years later, but I’m old and pedantic, and I thought the strip was cute.

    @ mitch4 (#5): Yep.

    (sqrt(5)-1)/2 = 0.618…

    Is “blue chips” a joke about stocks or just a color that’s different from “golden”?

    Like many others here, I’m also pedantic. It drives my wife nuts when I swing about on a thin silver chain. Especially when we have guests.

    Oh…sorry. I thought you meant ‘pendantic’.

    Well, I majored in engineering rather than math, but I got it and liked it. I’m just surprised that Randall Munroe didn’t come up with this first. It’s probably true, too. The size layering is essentially the result of breakage and filtering as the smaller pieces slip through the spaces between the larger pieces. Given the universality of the Fibonacci sequence in nature, it probably applies here as well. Today’s follow-up is also amusing.

    But I don’t quite get the “blue chip” remark. mitch4 @5 explained the “golden chips”, but for blue chip all I can think of is stocks.

    You’ve not seen blue corn chips, DemetriosX? They are common around these parts.

    I am obviously missing something. I got the joke, but what makes this strip pedantic?

    In the 1/17 strip Frazz (the character) attempts to explain the 1/16 joke.

    The “blue chip” comment was a reference to how some people use the Fibonacci sequence to predict the stock market. This made me smile.

    Add me to the “cute” crowd. I sent this comic in, too. I also got a laugh at the follow-up today, because, well, burping’s funny. :-D

    Political science and business administration in graduate school, but I loved it.

    I think the blue chips refer to stocks and Caulfield’s remark that each added chip is one and one-half times bigger than the one below it, which would be a terrific return on blue chips (stocks not tortilla chips).

    Skaloop #1 thanks for pointing out the loop.

    And, yes, the burp strip was wonderful, too.

    SELECT * FROM wp_users WHERE ID = '1' LIMIT 1

    I thought Frazz was just checking whether it worked with blue corn chips as well as the (correctly colored) gold ones Caulfield was showing him - doing a proper scientific “is this true for all variations” response to a discovery. Speaking of pedantic.
