I was spending some time recently considering the Golden Girls. There were 4 older women all living in the same house and, obviously, hilarity ensues. But I started wondering if having four Golden Girls was actually the optimal number - how did they know to use four older women instead of three or, like... six? Twelve? Also, how does the result change if science becomes able to clone Betty White? Seems like a Golden Girls packing/nesting algorithm might be a good topic for a doctoral dissertation.
