Mmmm Pi

Happy Pi Day!

I admire everything that Pi stands for -- precision, inscrutability, the joining of the commonplace with the maddeningly non-intuitive. Every time someone uses the idiom "squaring the circle," they're paying tribute to Pi. As with so many things, the Bible bothered to address Pi only to get it wrong.

Enjoy these pi-related links from exploratorium.
