Today is March 14, 2023.
Happy PI Day!
March is the third month of the year and today is the fourteenth.
An irrational number that cannot be fully expressed as a fraction, although most scientists and mathematicians prefer to write it as 22 over 7.
It is an unique number whose exact decimal representation cannot be completely calculated because it never ends nor repeats to a scientific conclusion. The number sequence representing PI, as seen in the image below, is derived from trying to divide 22 by 7.
A few speculate that the answers to the universe can be found in the equation, provided you know the right questions to ask. Personally, I always thought that was either 42 or "What do you get when you multiply 6 by 9?"😊
In the classic Star Trek episode "Wolf in the Fold", the Enterprise's computer was ordered to compute Pi to the last digit as part of an attempt to defeat the enemy of the week. We were never told the answer, although I like to think they would have figured it out by Captain Kirk and Mister Spock's time.
PI is difficult to have a conversation with because it will just go on forever!
What do you call a number that can't keep still?
A Roman Numeral.
Why does everyone hate the number 288?
It's two gross.
Is the moon really made of cheese or is it just a PI in the sky?
What's the best way to visualize infinity?
With a PI Chart!
Because March 14 is on a Tuesday this year, thanks for allowing us this brief chance to brighten your day outside of the Sunday Funnies and since it's this coming Friday, Larry the Leprechaun will be here for his annual Saint Patrick's Day🍀 visit.
Until then, take care and STAY SAFE!😷—lh,jr.
UPDATE: MARCH 18
SORRY FOLKS! LARRY THE LEPRECHAUN WAS OVERBOOKED FOR SAINT PATRICK'S DAY, SO HE WILL BE ON THE SUNDAY FUNNIES TOMORROW, MARCH 19.—lh,jr.
