I'll get back to politics soon. Right now, I'm working on Leonardo stuff in my spare time -- to the degree that I can spare some spare time. Which brings us to our poser for the day:
Look at the Vitruvian Man drawing
. Question: How many of you know why the circle is where it is? And why it is the size it is?
For some reason, you won't find the answer anywhere on that Wikipedia page. Neither will you find it in most other websites and books which talk about this drawing.
Yet the solution is childishly
If you're tempted to blather on about the "golden ratio" or the pentagram or the heptagram -- FAIL! The answer is a lot more obvious than that. What puzzles me is why more people don't see fit to mention it.
