It all makes sense now ðŸ˜›

See this forum post on Kongregate where Yllier explains that:

“Today I was playing with a calculator and found out that Pi, 1337 and 42 are all related. Well, kinda.

3.1415 Ãƒâ€” 13.37 = 42.001855

Or you can do division

42.001855 / 13.37 = 3.14.15

I just made my day.”

mrburkemathI found this amusing, even if it’s rounding. After all, both 42 and 1337 are geek-related numbers and to find that there’s a relationship between them that yields a number close to pi is just too cool. Yes, there are infinite numbers out there, but there aren’t infinite *geeky* numbers out there.

Anyway, I reddit-ed the page. So far, it got 12 up votes and 13 down votes. It made it to the front page of the math sub-reddit, and is #1 under Controversial. And it even spawned a response thread.

Good job.

mathfailYa, I was surprised and happy when I came across this approximation. ðŸ˜€
