I have oddly gotten really into Pi that I started memorizing digits of Pi. I want to see if there is any other Pi geeks out there. I know over 90 digits of Pi

Hey, don't doubt this guy. He could be another Einstein. (Yeah, the likelihood of that is not probable, but still.)

To discuss pi

And sorry alovera..as fun as pi is..I'm more of a phi guy

Meh, pi is so outdated.

Everyone uses Tau now. Get with the times.

It's not that difficult to memorize it in chunks.

Show me what you got.

Meh. I only memorized the first 15. One more than a standard calculator has. Beyond that, there's no practical use.

bet you can't memorize this many.

Going past what the standard calculator has doesn't change much, even using 3.14 doesn't change much.

I know 3.14159

Tau is better. It makes so much more sense.

I mean, seriously; who decided that it should take two pi to make a full circle?

Most times you'll just use the symbol and not even substitute in the numbers, at least in my experience. Factoring in the numbers just looks messy and most times you won't even need the number multiplied out. But, whatever floats your boat, I guess.

Gah..more of a rip-off of phi than anything else =p

But e^(i*pi) looks some much more elegant than e^(i*tau/2)...

I don't think pi or tau is going to win here by just naming equations. To be fair they are about even on the scale of equations.

However, Tau is just that little bit easier to learn. It just gets rid of how students get confused when pi is half way around a circle and 2pi is all the way around.

Even then, I'm sure you can just use both if the need be.

Radians would be most confusing with 2pi everywhere. I think it would be a worthy sacrifice. Might I mention rTau (circumference of a circle). Probably a bunch of other stuff too.

I suppose we could compromise, but that would be stupid...

Also,

Tau > pi

1.61 is not greater than 6.28...

:P

Phi is cool too, though.

Oh you were going by numbers? I thought we were doing which was the better haha

It's phi-tastic..even phi-bulous.
