Benjamin Franklin’s magic circle

The posts from the last two days feature circles. I suppose I’m on a circle kick. This trend will be kept moving like a car making doughnuts in a parking lot.

Today features Benjamin Franklin’s magic circle. It has something to do with radiuses and annuli and stuff. I just like the inherent symmetry of it. Feel free to download this image and use it as a tattoo.

Some history on Ben Franklin’s magic cirlce.

Here’s more on crazy Ben Franklin math.

More proof that you are smarter and more aware than most people. Most wouldn’t even bother to see a pattern they were “randomly” repeating. Curiously enough I’ve been more acutely aware of my desire for circular things, including replacing a square rug I have in my condo with a round one
adding an additional oddity, I want the new rug to be shag!

Ben’s magic circle is somewhat reminiscent of the designs created by that Spirograph toy created in the 1980’s.

Ben Franklin was a cool guy. Very multi-faceted.

Maybe he turned into something non-human when he was electrocuted during his discovery of lightning. Similar to the Frankenstein thing. Similar to Darth Vader becoming more machine than man.
