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.

    @AnonCwrd: you're NOT converting it to base9 and then treating it as base10, that's just stupid. Either convert it to base9 and treat it as base9 or leave it as base10. In base9, every possible sequence of the digits 0-8 will be there.

    It's the same as if the universe was infinite. Every possible combination of particles would be duplicated an infinite number of times so there'd be an infinite number of me's out there. Wow, I might finally be able to get some work done around the house :-)
