How Do You Scare An English Major? Like This… March 14, 2014
Get it?

Just give ’em some π.

But what you see above is the hard way to get π. What’s the easy way?

You mean you FORGOT?!

Prepare to look like a wizard (or Albert Einstein, whose birthday is today) to all of your math unsaavy friends. Simply divide the circumference of a circle by its diameter. It doesn’t matter how big, or how small, the circle is, your answer will always be π.


Happy π Day!

    You also annoy an English major by using the wrong “it’s” in your sentence: “Simply divide the circumference of a circle by it’s diameter.” Should be “its” without an apostrophe.

    • Gotcha! You tripped my booby trap! 😀
