    Because we have two eyes? One on top of the other?

    I believe, Richard, that π = pi is also a transcendental number, which makes it even more difficult to use in math, rather than in the real world of science and engineering where all measurements are approximations, no matter how exact.

    I preferred it when it was merely π in the Skye…

    Which puts to rest the false notion of the so-called-but-false formula for the area of a circle:
     
    A = πR^2 or, in English, Pi R Square.
     
    It’s wrong. Obviously. The disproof: By inspection everybody knows that Pi R Round. Hence, Pi R Square is WRONG.
     
    In the illustration above the triangular or wedge-shaped piece of Pi is not wrong, because it is only a SUBSET of the round Pi. So, to avoid superstition, never bake nor ever eat a Pi baked in a Rectangular tin, which is geometric nonsense. (It’s also bad luck, because it means you would die shortly thereafter.)

    Or, as the redneck father said when his freshman son reported that in his first semester at college he’d learned that “Pi R Square”….
    Everybody knows that Pie are round; but Cornbread are square!

    @Richard S. Russell
    Sorry, but isn’t Pi defined as the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its radius?

    I’ll say it again, I love when this strip is about comics!
