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

    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".

    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
