“PI DAY”

“Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.”

Circumference of a circle divided by the diameter. That's all.

"If you take the length of one of the sides of the pyramids and you double that and if you divide that by the height, you get pie."

I did all that and still didn't get pie *sadpanda*

I found the end of pi. You just have to divide by zero.

Αεί ο Θεός ο Μέγας γεωμετρεί,
το κύκλου μήκος ίνα ορίση διαμέτρω,
παρήγαγεν αριθμόν απέραντον,
καί όν, φεύ,
ουδέποτε όλον θνητοί θα εύρωσι.

Is our universe equivalent to a cellular automata? It seems to me that similar patterns arise in everything around us. It seems that the fundamental laws of the universe are very simple.

I really hate to be that guy, but damn, it's really rare to see an attractive woman who's also into math and science

Pi day is my B-Day, 3.14 is 3/14 (B-day), Albert was born on my day, E=MC2 is my initials, and I am (not to brag) very smart… Freaky…
