Actually... no... First off Pi is irrational, so even if it was 3.1459..... that's not 3.14, next http://tauday.com/ :p

Truth hurts.

Round it, geez.

you can't, it's irrational.

9. Agent_Sniffles

Stahp. omg. It's too early for this.

We got pies at school because of this(:

Mmmmm Pieeeeee

2 PI = TAU!

14. UnkleRhaukus

...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

Or, happy Pi day?

@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".

21. jollysailorbold

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
