14 March 2014 – Soul Coughing – Circles – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

I think anyone with a decent Internet connection and a passing knowledge of mathematics knows that today – 3.14 – is Pi Day.

But, have you ever stopped to think what pi – the number, not the letter in the Greek alphabet – really is?  Well, this math major can tell you! Put simply, it’s a constant number, equal to the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.  A circle is a funny shape – every point on it is equidistant from the center, so a constant like this is possible.

And since we’re talking about circles, I think it is appropriate to use the greatest song ever written about this cool shape!
