Actually... no... First off Pi is irrational, so even if it was 3.1459..... that's not 3.14, next http://tauday.com/ :p
No, Konrad, stahp.
Round it, geez.
you can't, it's irrational.
Stahp. omg. It's too early for this.
We got pies at school because of this(:
your pie is two pi
...so there should be plenty for everybody
2 PI != 3.14 = 6.28 :P tau day!
@UnkleRhaukus what do you think tho? My buddy is claiming tau manifesto, but there is also a pi one, trying to fight over each other... What do you think? If a circle is supposed to be 2 pi which is supposed to equal 3.14, I would think that pi itself would be half of that, not double that?
@KonradZuse FINALLY! Someone who understands that pi isn't completely accurate! :D
@tafkas77 , I actually just found this out last night, was very interesting to know. I was always curious what PI is, and just looking it up to Pi = C/D to which yes it's 2 PI = Tau, very interesting to know.
Apparently pi is correctly 3.1459..... but it's not correctly the constant, or so they say :p. It all depends on how we precieve math. It's like how they say the 4 forces that act on us, interfere with each other, and don't make sense in sceince. We still have much to learn and "create".
It just supposed to be the estimation :)
From an engineering perspective pi makes sense because the diameter of a circle is easy to measure. From a mathematical perspective the radius is more fundamental than the diameter so tau would be more appropriate in many contexts. From a physics perspective, both are very useful
and from Comp Sci we use Pi :p, at least everything is based on pi, and not Tau :p
