I hope not. I thought the theme of this one was more or less "Looks like someone invented ____ earlier that previously suspected".

In fact, letting Pi have a turn occupying that blank might spare us all a bit of that dreaded number crunching?

What a lovely approximation of 3.160557714!

I could also make a case in point out of it as to why we don't want to let a 2^n series run too high (i.e., 128 or 256, most of the time)

256 / 3.160557714 = 1.619967254 / 2 and nobody wants to deal that I'm sure, starting with me.

At Stonehenge, it's no harder to get to that sarcen circle mean circumference than area (48.66934411^2 x Pi) = 7441.506403; (7441.506403 / 2) / 1.177245771 = 316.0557713. It's like it's telling us what the correct mean value is.

I'm sure the AEs only wrote it down as 256/81 so Jacob could understand it. The state of the art for those who aren't interested in the state of the art and stick to the 28 digit end of a ~28.25 digit cubit rod.

Well, I have to say I am truly honored to be invited into the company of Wendy after you've spoken so highly of her so often, but are you sure you meant to do that?

I'm a maverick among mavericks, you know. There's a definite limit to how much stock I take in Berriman or any pioneer. Historically pioneers discover America but think they're in the West Indies and so forth.

I will "thinkitover" but I hope this isn't like the time Jacob pointed me at the Hall of Ma'at, I suspect he only did it because he thought they'd have me for breakfast over there and he was probably right. :-)

Of course, if you're sure they won't mind, I could run right over to rodz's and try to figure out how explain what's in that compilation of different forms of Pi. Looks like approximations of at least three or four distinct mathematical constants that probably really have little to do with Pi, like

3.148350666 = 50.96641801 ("51"?) / 1.618829140 / 10

Very different thing than Pi. :-)

Glad to see someone getting some use out of 311040 besides me, btw - 31104000 is Carl Munck's "Giza Vector Grid Point" squared.

Cheers!
