Well before that deplorable Trump this was not an issue.

Under Obama cakes were nice and round.

Can a circle truly exist?

You certainly can't have a locus of points equidistant from a single point.

Well there was that US State that wanted to define (in law) pi as 22/7 ... exactly!

Perhaps some of the idiotic mathematical trolls in the Science forum
could 'prove' pi is a rational number.

Well, for almost all practical purposes we act as if pi was finite. If you take a value of 3.14 for pi you are only off by less than a promille, so much more accurate than most things in life ðŸ˜‰

Disclaimer I know that Pi is an irrational number and I know that some people know dozens to a thousand numbers of decimals.

To prove that a circle is round
And be terribly deep and profound
One should start at a place
And walk at a pace
One would find one would keep going 'round.

It's called "humor" Duchess, you should try it more often (or once even)

When I was in 9th grade, this kid in my geometry class had memorized pi out to 500 digits.

And he could give those digits to you if you had about 3.5 minutes to spare.

Don’t mind her...she’s still upset over the uncovering her obvious “mathematical brilliance” ruse. The proof of which is trivial like her knowledge of the subject.
Fraud...fake...phony.

WTH?

We have a thread that is not anti-Trump?

Trump is all that matters.

Are you all daft? Where is the will to resist?

RESIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ðŸ˜
