## OriginEdit

Pascal's triangle was invented by Blaise Pascal during his autistic period. Intending to prove that the shortest distance between two points was a metrical foot, he stumbled upon the following pattern achieved by adding the sum of the other to the one before and just a jump to the left.

```                 1
1   1
1   2   1
1   3   3   1
1   4   6   4   1
1   5  10  10   5   1

```

Blaise got the idea for this triangular configuration while watching light bulbs flash on the family Christmas tree. (When one of the bulbs accidentally landed on his head he came closer to discovering gravity than a cure for cancer, but was able to avoid both with unequalled dexterity.)

# ApplicationsEdit

The uses of this triangle are one of none and many. While most uses have been documented, others have been in held in trust by members of the Da Vinci Code of Ethics. This is alluded to in the obtuse smile on the Moaning Lisa's poker face.

## MusicEdit

Can be played in any orchestra having as many violins as violinists, as long as the music isn't too square. This is especially true whenever Mars trine Venus. The use of Pascal's triangle in orchestral pieces has fallen from favour since very few musicians have ever mastered it.

## MilitaryEdit

Was used in the Golf War to triangulate the location of missing birdies and bogeys.

## EcologyEdit

By joining four Pascal triangles to form a pyramid it is possibly to locate water in any river, including the Nile.

## Software EngineeringEdit

When applied to software that has run adrift of its specification, Pascal's triangle (also known as the holy trinity of the MVC, as it is referred to by the Gang of Three) allows you (or your kin) to reverse-engineer all your classes back to an orthogonal set of goto statements.
