DailyDirt: Pi Math

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

National Pie Day is not actually March 14th (although it really should be, if only to make it more memorable). But here's to the number, not the delicious dessert. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    yes it does Michael. It means EXACTLY THAT.. infinite is not 'just very big' it means it goes on forever, NEVER ENDS, therefore as they are non-repeating numbers you WILL FIND somewhere along that infinite line (probably towards the end !!!) and sequence of numbers your social security number, your telephone number, date of birth.

    easily your IQ.

    if you could buy an infinite number of (non-repeating)lotto tickets the odds of you winning is 100%.

    I guess you just cant get your head around what infinite actually means.
