"On and he" s/b " On and on he".

ANyway, pi is a miracle of no small importance. Not only that we are smart enough to know its value, but that there should be such a value.

Some odd things about Pi:

pi squared is approximately g (in m/s^2)

To within half a percent, pi seconds is a nanocentury.

The Washington Park station on the PortlandOregon light rail system is (unlike all other stops in the system) located underground (in fact, it's the deepest subway station in the UnitedStates--the line tunnels under the West Hills rather than attempt to climb the 6% grade that the nearby freeway uses to get over them). The architects decided, for some reason, to give this station a "science" theme, which includes a big granite statue with the first 100 or so digits of pi. Except that they got one of the digits wrong.

Mnemonic methods for remembering the value of pi:

25/8 is useful in that 8 is a power of two, so the result can be performed with bit-shifting. This is useful if you're working with a primitive microprocessor, where it's easier to shift bits than to divide integers. If you can remember 333/106 it yields moreprecision.

Nanocentury?

Can't do the math? Nano is a prefix meaning ten to the minus ninth power, or one billionth.

One century =3,153,600,000 seconds. x 10^-9 = 3.1536, an approximation of pi.

A nanocentury is little teensy one. Sheesh, ya gotta explain everything these days, doncha?

I myself have only memorized pi to 3.14159265. This is easy to remember, since you have 14159265 -- or the year Columbus bumped into the American continents alternating with the year Mary Queen of Scots married Henry Darnley (who she later had exploded) and Billy Bob Shakespeare was one year old.

This shows that the fusion of all human endeavor is in contained in pi, if we could but understand it.

Also, both Texas and Indiana have tried to legislate the value of pi as 3.0000.... In Indiana, math profs from Indiana University and Purdue pointed out that to do so would make the state a laughing stock around the world and the attempt failed. Texas, on the other hand, gave the world GW Bush.

What! So he is hanged, is he? So what?

This is not a pallindrome.

Mediocrity being the common denominator that politicians aim for, Texas is nothing if not consistent, and has another moron on the rise: Rick Perry.

Another slice of pi, please.

There once was a fellow named Grice
Who fooled with dynamite twice.
When asked "Have a third?"
He said, "That's absu...."
And bits of his tits in Vermont.

Constrain Rapaire to simple scanning?
How base! How dull! How quite unmanning!
His lines and words would sullied be
That yearn like angels to go free!
Scansion has beauty, do not doubt it --
But his lines don't, even without it.

Iffen it's good enuff fer Ferlinghetti, it's good enough for me.
(Gimme that old time poesy, gimme that old time poesy....)

There was a king reigned in the East:        
There, when kings will sit to feast,        
They get their fill before they think        
With poisoned meat and poisoned drink.        
He gathered all the springs to birth        
From the many-venomed earth;        
First a little, thence to more,              
He sampled all her killing store;        
And easy, smiling, seasoned sound,        
Sate the king when healths went round.        
They put arsenic in his meat        
And stared aghast to watch him eat;        
They poured strychnine in his cup        
And shook to see him drink it up:        
They shook, they stared as white's their shirt:        
Them it was their poison hurt.        
—I tell the tale that I heard told.        
Mithridates, he died old.

As usual, after being on the road for a weekend, I shall endeavor to blindly dive back into the MOAB without reading anything that has been posted during my absence. There is no point in doing so.

How's Gluon doin'?

I saw a bunch of Klingons in Atlanta again this year. They weren't in their assault vessel this time. They were riding Harley Davidsons. Perhaps Freds would have more success in his/her/its/their attempts to mate with/suck innards from members of our species if they'd drive really cool bikes like the Klingons do. Of course, that's assuming individual Freds are intelligent and coordinated enough to drive a Hog. I'm sure Bubba Bubba would qualify, but that Chuckles guy's pretty much a doofus.

Welcome back, Bee Dub!! Gluon says Quark!!. He's doing fine except he doesn't sleep well at night because he says there are wormholes coming close and it makes him nervous.

Yes, we have been profoundly flattered this week by TWO imitations of the Mother on the thread list -- one by no less a personage than ____. However, as I pointed out, cheap, tawdry imitations won't deliver the momentum needed. It's a watery brew those poor souls are stirring up for themselves, and likely to give them indigestion.

I am certain that Gluon also sends congratulations, for I saw him lifting a leg in what I assume is agreement.

The Rebel
by Padraig Pearse

I am come of the seed of the people, the people that sorrow,
That have no treasure but hope, No riches laid up but a memory Of an Ancient glory.
My mother bore me in bondage, in bondage my mother was born,
I am of the blood of serfs;
The children with whom I have played, the men and women with whom I have eaten,
Have had masters over them, have been under the lash of masters,
And, though gentle, have served churls;
The hands that have touched mine, the dear hands whose touch is familiar to me,
Have worn shameful manacles, have been bitten at the wrist by manacles,
Have grown hard with the manacles and the task-work of strangers,
I am flesh of the flesh of these lowly, I am bone of their bone,
I that have never submitted;
I that have a soul greater than the souls of my people's masters,
I that have vision and prophecy and the gift of fiery speech,
I that have spoken with God on the top of His holy hill.
And because I am of the people, I understand the people,
I am sorrowful with their sorrow, I am hungry with their desire:
My heart has been heavy with the grief of mothers,
My eyes have been wet with the tears of children,
I have yearned with old wistful men,
And laughed or cursed with young men;
Their shame is my shame, and I have reddened for it,
Reddened for that they have served, they who should be free,
Reddened for that they have gone in want, while others have been full,
Reddened for that they have walked in fear of lawyers and of their jailors
With their writs of summons and their handcuffs, Men mean and cruel!
I could have borne stripes on my body rather than this shame of my people.
And now I speak, being full of vision;
I speak to my people, and I speak in my people's name to the masters of my people.
I say to my people that they are holy, that they are august, despite their chains,
That they are greater than those that hold them, and stronger and purer,
That they have but need of courage, and to call on the name of their God,
God the unforgetting, the dear God that loves the peoples
For whom He died naked, suffering shame.
And I say to my people's masters: Beware,
Beware of the thing that is coming, beware of the risen people,
Who shall take what ye would not give.
Did ye think to conquer the people,
Or that Law is stronger than life and than men's desire to be free?
We will try it out with you, ye that have harried and held,
Ye that have bullied and bribed, tyrants, hypocrites, liars!

Good morning, Mom. I hope that I didn't awaken you too abruptly and that your day is filled with the joy that comes from knowing that your children care. You know who they are. They're the ones who are afraid that they've awakened you too abruptly, the ones that wish you a joy filled day.

You know, your favorite.
