Fibonacci Dual Theorem

Let $F_n$ be the $n$th Fibonacci Number. Then the sequence $\{F_n\}_{n=2}^\infty=\{1, 2, 3, 5, 8, \dots\}$ is Complete, even if one is restricted to subsequences in which no two consecutive terms are both passed over (until the desired total is reached; Brown 1965, Honsberger 1985).
