In the rest of the world, we have the Pi month. XX/3/14. Take that, ameridudes! Unfortunately, only every 1000 years
In the rest of the world, XX would be the year: Y/M/D
The reason why radians are what they are is because then the length of the arc (of a unit circle) that subtends the angle R is exactly R.
Yes, and how many radians are there in a circle? Tau.
And any other ratio (especially tau!) doesn't satisfy the Eulerian identity, so can't be nearly so beautiful.
e^i*tau=1 seems a lot more beautiful than e^i*pi=-1 to me. It gets rid of that ugly minus one.
July 22nd IS PI day in Europe, approximately.
So if I am approximately in Europe, I can celebrate?
If they start poisoning search with for-profit results Google will be quickly reminded that they are not the only search engine in town.
And other search engines (that matter) are?
Just google for search engine.
The straighter the line the bigger the circle....
Yes, and no. If the engines ran for 4-5 hours and they flew in a straight line, then you can rule out anything inside the 4 hour circle. It will be in the ring between 5 hours out, and 4 hours out.
