I love Benford's law.
Isn't it crazy that numbers gathered from a bank account and Fibonacci numbers should follow a Rule?
I was watching a show (can't remember where) that discussed IRS tax audits. They interviewed ex-auditors and learned that Benford's law is used by the IRS to see who cheats on their taxes. Wild!

I know right! It's so fascinating and weird, even countries areas and the heights of the tallest buildings follow this one rule!
