    But his original post didn't even contain a question mark.
    So he must be kindly telling us that a person called Ever heard of the Fibonacci sequence, right?

    Therefore, in order to give this thread a raison d'etre, here is a joke:

    e^x is walking down the road one day when he meets several other functions coming the other way. One of them, x^2, cries "Run for your life! A differential is coming! He's already eliminated some constants!" as he runs past. "Hah!" exclaimed e^x, "I'm not afraid of any differential; I'm e^x, and he can't affect me." So he walked on a little further, and, sure enough, spied a differential coming towards him. He approached boldly and declared, "Hi, I'm e^x"

    "Hello," replied the differential, grinning broadly, "I'm d/dy"

    And so e^x says "Absence makes the fart go Honda.".

    Nope, you are getting confused with the 13000th.

    The 4000th is definitely a 3

    Anyway, it's a pity you didn't get the original joke.
