Silly KN. If you learn pi to 5 decimals, you know it to 1000. Just use random digits in the 6th and later position, and no one will know the difference, or care.

There may be a few people who know pi to more than 5 decimals, but if I met a woman like that I would try to pick her up, not reminisce about pi. How you doin?
Are you implying that KN is as irrational as I am? Or only that she's asking to be?

I suppose I am, by the version I chose to post. I contemplating suggesting that if she learned it to 5 digits, she could just let those 5 keep repeating, and who would notice?

While the two of you may be equally irrational, she's the only one of the two I'm trying to pick up. NTTAWWT.

Presumably all the folks with "5" pins would not notice once she gets past 5 digits. Also, those of us with "3.14" pins are surely too irrational to notice.

I think that just leaves those folks with Tromey integer pins who might notice. However, I don't know if any of these exist or not.

The slices of pi are for members that have been here for 3 years and some change (about .14 year). How's bout a coupon for one free pint of Yuengling, instead?

Small consolation for those of us who are more than a year beyond 3 but haven't reached 5. Oh, well, Nov will be soon. And it's not bad to be in the same boat as Kid Notorious, especially if we find ourselves stranded on a desert island... not bad for me, anyway
