Boring, didn't do justice to this number. The fascinating stuff about the golden ratio is beyond geometry: the Fibonacci sequence and related stuff.

And too drawn-out explanation for common people (heck, too much for a mathematician).

For all of you who switched off around 3 minutes, I skipped to the end and the answer was an Aardvark and I really wasn't expecting that. :squirrel:
