It all makes sense now 😛
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 Ã— 13.37 = 42.001855
Or you can do division
42.001855 / 13.37 = 3.14.15
I just made my day.”

I 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.
Ya, I was surprised and happy when I came across this approximation. 😀
