Pi updates

i’m a horrible lizard owner. I broke Pi’s quarantine the other night because I swore I saw a tail kink and needed to make sure his spine was ok. The good news, his tail is fine; it was just held at an odd angle.

The better news is that holding Pi is like patting an angel’s belly.

The bad news is that he’s shown his disgust with his current food by POOPING IN IT, REALLY, PI??? What, were you raised by wolves? NO, EVEN WOLVES WOULDN’T POOP ON THEIR FOOD.


Happy Pi Day, Tumblr!

Happy π Day!

Today is 3/14, also known as π Day. In addition to indulging in our favorite types of pie (mmmm lemon meringue), we’re also celebrating by spreading knowledge about one of the most interesting number in mathematics, π.

π, also spelled out as “pi”, is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.

Often, you’ll see π written as 227 — this is an approximation. Because pi is neither finite nor repeating, and cannot be expressed as a ratio of two integers, it is also classified as an irrational number. This also means that the digits in pi go on forever, and never fall into any one pattern.

π has an intriguing history. In 1882, one mathematician proved that π is a transcendental number. The number appears in some contexts that seem to have no connection with the definition relating to a circle.

Now you know about π, and can eat it too!

I made this cipher a couple of years ago. To solve it one has to do some calculating, some guessing and googling, and use the only clue: the 880 first decimals of pi. I bought a blank canvas and spent a couple of weeks thinking about what would be the most beautiful to put on it, and this is was the result. It took about a month to write and calculate the cipher and I’m very proud of it. No one has figured out more than a couple of steps so far, I wrote it so that there are several layers of ciphering but that it’s easy to see if you are on the right track. The picture is high quality so you can zoom in on the separate symbols. There is also an awesome reward for the first person to solve it, what the reward is is written in the hidden text.

Thanks for your awesome submission, Nemi! You’ve surely put a lot of work into your cipher, and I’m sure it takes even more effort to crack the code.
