Why shouldn't you be intimidated by higher math?

It's as easy as Pi.

Why did pi fail its drivers test?

I'm not sure. Enlighten me.

But I do know it takes 3.14 bakers to bake a pi. And a mathemetician's favorite animal is a pi-thon. And that 3.14% of sailors are pi-rates. And Isaac Newton's favorite food was pi. And you don't want to get in a conversation with pi at a party because they will go on, and on, and on....

Same reason you don't want run into pi at a party, he doesn't know when to stop.

What is the area of a 14 inch pizza?
153.86 square inches
The surface area of a 14-inch pizza is 3.14 x 49 (7 x 7 = 49) = 153.86 square inches of surface area.

So, should I get two 12" mediums for $12.99 each or a 16" large for $18.99?
3.14 x 36 = 113" x 2 = 226 sq"
3.14 x 64 = 201 sq"

It depends if I'm going to eat more than 201 sq".

Wouldn't the surface area vary by the thickness of the crust? A 1 inch high crust would have more surface area than a thin crust wouldn't it?

So did anything special happen on:

March 14, 1592 at 6:53 and 58.9 seconds?

Also, some people think that the more fundamental number is tau: τ = 2π. Which would put the honor on June 28.

Shakespeare started writing Richard III.141592653589.... He eventually truncated the play back to simply Richard III after critics claimed the script was irrational.

I think that almost coincides with a new moon, which is probably something I should base a new calendar system on so I can sell prophecies*.

I think it may be close enough to be a rounding error, given the calculator technology of the time.


Fraction bars with 1 or 2 underneath?

No. It's a lot of work generating spurious prophecies, and I'd probably get demonetized, demonized, and perhaps even demagnetized, depriving me of the healing benefits of elemental copper toe bangles while I sleep.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I actually worried about that when I wrote the post; I was just too lazy to research it. There is a legitimate "calendar basis" issue for any pi day, but certainly its more troubling when going back to the 1500s as I did.
