This is Completely Irrational

“Pi R not square; Pi R round.” ~Unknown

"Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit." ~Psalm 147:5

“But who is able to build a temple for him, since the heavens, even the highest heavens, cannot contain him?” ~2 Chronicles 2:6a

I couldn’t let a day like today go by without giving a shout out to fellow nerds everywhere.

Happy Pi Day!

Enjoy the first one thousand decimal places of Pi below!

All I have to say is, if God knows every single digit of this incredible, infinite number (and He does), then surely He can handle any problem I'll ever face. :-)


  1. Amen! I am so glad He does. I had completely forgot today was Pi day.

  2. Oh my - I don't even know what to say!

  3. Sharon, I'm starting to have serious concerns about you...

  4. Did she mention that last year for her students she sent them an email telling them Happy Pi Day? Two of my kids were fortunate to have her as their math teacher at the time.

  5. Oh!! I thought you were talking about Mrs. C, Penny!! I just realized, you are talking about me!! I did that; you're right! How funny! I didn't even remember doing that!!! :-D

  6. That is hysterical. I only knew 3.14. I'll be sure and learn those other 998 numerals. Ya, I'll get right on that. Actually, I'll just call you if I ever need that info.

  7. Oh my! I found you through AQ (I'm a friend of Queen Beeloved) and I thought it was SO funny to see what you wrote at the top of this post.

    My dad ALWAYS says, "No, Pi are round. Cracker are square!"
