$VersionNumber
5.2

I copy from the Further Examples section of AspectRatio

...The default setting of Aspect Ratio is GoldenRatio...
(see
http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/Built-inFunctions/GraphicsAndSound/BasicOptions/FurtherExamples/AspectRatio.html
)

I think this it should be coreected to
...The default setting of Aspect Ratio is 1/GoldenRatio...

In the documentation of the function the correct default value is given
...The default value AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio is used for
two-dimensional plots...

(see http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/functions/AspectRatio )

Options[Plot, AspectRatio]
{AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio}
