It's our world and we can do as we please! I found this story on Topix News and several other places, and thought you would enjoy. Consider it a refresher to an earlier post. The tags are theirs.
Part 1 (I love the last paragraph best of all)
"Congresswoman Martha Roby (R-Ala.) is sponsoring HR 205, The Geometric Simplification Act, declaring the Euclidean of pi to be precisely 3. The bill comes in response to data and rankings from the Organisation for Economic Co- and Development, rating the United States' 15 year-olds 25th in the world in mathematics.
"That long-held empirical value of pi, I am not saying it should be necessarily viewed as wrong, but 3 is a lot better," said Roby, the 34-year old legislator representing Alabama's second congressional district, ushered into office in the historic 2010 Republican mid-term bonanza.
As ya'll know, pi's are round.
Don't forget Google's April Fools 2011 hoax, and other classics.
