Around 1998, I conjectured the following trigonometric result on the basis of the side-angle duality that often appears in Euclidean geometry. It was specifically inspired by the (not so well-known, except in problem-solving circles) trigonometric version of Ceva's theorem. The validity of this conjecture was quickly confirmed by construction and dragging with the dynamic geometry software Sketchpad, as well as by a one line proof. Though this curious-looking result is in all likelihood not new or original, it doesn't seem to be well known or appear in standard mathematical textbooks.

Result: In any triangle ABC, (sin A)^{2} = (sin B)^{2} + (sin C)^{2} - 2 sin B sin C cos A.
