    I calculated Pi to 130 places just for gits & shiggles: via https://keisan.casio.com/calculator (long form calculator)

    3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510582097494459230781640628620 899862803482534211706798214808651328230664709384461

    NASA used 40 digits t cvalculate gravity's effects on the moon flights.

    Some schools teacgh 22/7 as a close enough approximate, but it's 3.143 where it diverges from Pi.

    If NASA had used 22/7 instead of 40 digits of Pi. the astronauts never would have reacghed the moon.

    I love Pie, so why not Pi?

    Pi Day is just around the corner:

    Check in at 1:59.265

    for some super accurate Pi Day timing! (eat a Pie to celebrate at 1:59! I prefer deep dish cherry!)

    But at 2:00, you have to stop, as the moment, as ephemeral as our hopes & dreams, has passed.

    There's always next year!

    Put your Pi Day pie in the freezer until then?

    Nerdily yours,
