He’s gonna be at that computer awhile.
Happy Pi(e) Day!!
“Pie are round, cornbread are square.”
Happy Half-Tau Day!
He’ll be there typing for the rest of his life.
happy PI day
Not going anywhere for awhile?
Man, I hope it’s important; whatever it is.
will need a bigger box
What a coincidence… On my list of “My Comics” Off the mark follows Reality check and they both feature Pi…
Employee self assessment, 1. What value do you bring to the company?
Life of Pi…
I have pi memorized to 8 digits, the accuracy of computers in my day. My nephew who is a math and chess wiz has it memorized to 80 digits.
8 digits is more than enough for everyday applications. It is difficult to measure, much less cut to that precision.
The Apollo missions made it to the moon on slide rules (well some of it) which, to someone with really good eyesight might eek out 4 place precision, depending on which end of the scale you are on and how big the slide rule is.
Yes, I still know how to use Napier’s Bones.
OH! SO super clever today!!! Loved this one, Mark. Thank you for the laugh.
π… which is to say, there’s no way to give a complete decimal representation.
You only need 40 digits to have an accuracy less than the diameter of a hydrogen atom when calculating the circumference of the universe.
Just type in PI.
Multiply by infinity and you have a great prime number for a cypher key.
Someone from NASA told me that the most they ever use is 16 digits of precision. The comic is correct as far as it shows, btw. (OK, I once had it memorized to 111 digits.)
How do you prove that you aren’t a robot with that name? LOL
‘PI’ R squared, but 2 ‘PI’ R delicious.
Philosophical question: Is his name a word (pi) or a number (3.14 etc)?
I want to see him fill out a government form.
Oddly, if you convert the letters in PIDAY to numbers (P=16, I=9, etc) the digits are the first decimal digits in pi.
I’d say you have legal recourse for a name change.
This whole comic is irrational……
That’s a mighty strange keyboard.
That should keep the alien monster in the computer busy for a while.
