    What a coincidence… On my list of “My Comics” Off the mark follows Reality check and they both feature 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.

    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.

    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.)

    ‘PI’ R squared, but 2 ‘PI’ R delicious.

    Philosophical question: Is his name a word (pi) or a number (3.14 etc)?

    Oddly, if you convert the letters in PIDAY to numbers (P=16, I=9, etc) the digits are the first decimal digits in pi.

    That should keep the alien monster in the computer busy for a while.
