I was still sleeping.  However, I'm taking advantage of Pi day to celebrate with a fabulous Raspberry-Peach pie from a bakery in a small town here in west-central Nebraska. villagepiemaker.com Wish I could save a piece for everyone on the forum. I am saving it until after the concert tomorrow though.

I was sitting here on the couch, on my laptop, checking in on Fiddlerman.com, the FM chat, Facebook, Street Jelly and some other sites that I follow.

We had pumpkin pi for dessert tonight. :)

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

I revisited some sea shanties - where all the sailors were, of course, Pi Rates...

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.  

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

"Pi is an infinite, non-repeating decimal - meaning that every possible number combination exists somewhere in pi. Converted into ASCII text, somewhere in that infinite string of digits is the name of every person you will ever love, the date, time, and manner of your death, and the answers to all the great questions of the universe. Converted into a bitmap, somewhere in that infinite string of digits is a pixel-perfect representation of the first thing you saw on this earth, the last thing you will see before your life leaves you, and all the moments, momentous and mundane, that will occur between those two points.
All information that has ever existed or will ever exist, the DNA of every being in the universe, EVERYTHING: all contained in the ratio of a circumference and a diameter."
 
This graphic shows a visual representation of Pi to 10,000 places. Interesting huh?

Well, at least folks weren't expecting some apocalypse like they were for Y2K (if anybody remembers that) LOL.

I didn't do much specifically for Pi Day, but my daughter borrowed my little "Raspberry Pi" computer to spend much of the day doing Minecraft.  So I will count it as "somewhat observed".

 

@cdennyb: Yeah, and every winning lottery number is in there somewhere.  Good luck sorting it out though, since all the losing numbers would be in there as well. LOL

I find it kinda interesting that there is a sort of regular pattern to it, even though it doesn't repeat.  Or maybe the pattern is due to the type of chart?

Chaotic Random Simple Order.

 

There are NO curved lines in there, only straight lines from one number to another as it is calculated. The curve is generated by the progressive tangent coincidence between each pathway.

 

Amazing stuff right there, like Quantum Mechanics.

I realize this is kind of late, but it's also kind of cool.

Very cool.

Did anyone actually try to verify it? LOL
