We visit the Fayetteville Farmer’s Market, soliciting math questions, and pose a problem about funny walks.

Wow, talk about a case of nerd sniping (http://xkcd.com/356/), when I heard this problem on my iPod I halted my grocery shopping and did some quick notes on a napkin.
The funny walks problem appears to be following a recognizable pattern at least up to 7 feet. I wonder if the combination follows for 8 feet.
(The sequence seems to follow the Fibonacci sequence starting at F(n=2).)
Keep up the good work guys!
