]]>Maybe we could come up with an argument for pi/2. It is a "right" angle, so it must be right!

The ANCIENT GREEKS INVENTED IT IN THE ERA OF BC!]]>

Shanks it seems was doing all that calculating for same reason we do it today. He wanted to know if there is some pattern in the digits of pi.

]]>computers) it was discovered that he made a mistake in the 200th digit and all the rest was trash

since each digit depended on the previous digit. Probably spent the great bulk of his 15 year project

on the last 500 digits. Mercy me! But 200 digits of pi ain't bad, eh? ]]>

Actually, the idea is several years old, at least 3 or 4 if not long. And it is not a bad idea, because some formulas to become just a little bit prettier, but in my opinion, it is not very useful...

To be brief, the "tauists", as they call themselves, argue that the constant pi should be replaced with tau=2*pi, which is much more natural.

I have to say that, to me, the manifesto was really convincing; as i see it, the use of tau instead of pi brings clarity and coherence with other formulas (for example area of a circular sector).

What do you think about it?

thats so annoying because pi was made,like THOUSANDS OF YEARRRRRRRRSSSS AGO!This idea is 0 YEARS OLD!:mad:
