Using pies to calculate Pi ! Only for geeks [Geometry]
posted March 11 2013 21:22.16 by Giorgos Lazaridis




It took more than 2250 years for mankind to develop a more reasonable algorithm to calculate Pi than the one used by the Greek mathematician Archimedes. And this algorithm includes... pies.

Well ok, its not that precise, but its much more fun...
