It’s PI Day in America!

3.14 (March 14th).  Ignore the 2012.  Ignore the fact that other parts of the world list it 14.3.

The encouragement of focused, proper ignorance is a blogger’s main purpose!  Not much different than politics.

    1. Delirious, don't make me hungry! I've been putting on some late winter fat that I don't really need.

  3. I am surprised at you, Old Foss. I thought you more precise than that: 3.14159265.

    My favourite formula: Pi mal Daumen (Pi times thumb) - meaning "approximately". An approach you cannot afford when making pastry.

    1. Ursula, why did you randomly decide that was enough precision?

      My favorite version of the approximation formula is the engineer's lament:
      1. Measure with a micrometer.
      2. Mark with chalk.
      3. Cut with an axe.

      Precisely how so much of life is practiced.
