Pi Day 2012

Woot woot, its Pi Day.  I am not sure I can beat the creativity I discovered in last years post, so you may want to read it again!  Nonetheless, I will try my hand at Pi Day this year.

Did you know that the Bible references Pi?  Yeah back in 1 Kings,

 23And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about

30/10 = 3.  It’s an approximation, but such that a cubit is an approximation as well, it may have been more accurate than we think!

You some other great facts and information about the favorite constant of mathematicians everywhere here.

And to close out, I decided to check out a 3:14 verse from Proverbs, which happens to say

14 for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold. Proverbs 3:14 New International Version (NIV)
Who is the she, the proverb refers to?  Wisdom.  hm, that seems proper today.  Give that some thought, and eat some Pi, and enjoy the day.
