MITS: S1 Ep5 (π special)

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, its a new MITS post! YEAH!
Springfield has gone super (again!) so I wanted to do a MITS post loosely based around the chaos!

unlock_homer_piemanRandom Backstory: People who know me will know that when I am thinking of ideas my train of thought sets of a domino effect in my mind – somebody says something which makes me think of something else which makes me think of something else which reminds me of something until I end up with something random! Ever happen to you?
Well I came up with this idea in a slight domino effect that went like this:

superhero event ==> pie-man ==> pie ==> π

So there you have the weird back story behind why I am choosing to talk about pi today! Read on to escape this chaos and to actual get something useful …Life of mmm ... PI!

First a little random thought to blow your mind …

piequalspieHere is a quick summary of pi to help you progress in this post

The circumference of a circle to the diameter of a circle is approximately equal to 3.14 (2d.p) or 22/7

piOne of my all-time favourite maths jokes in the Simpsons has to be from the episode “Bye Bye Nerdie” where in an effort to quite a ramble of noisy mathematicians at the “12th Annual Big Science Thing” shouts “pi is exactly 3” which quickly shut everyone up! Which is a slight parody and joke to a failed attempt of a few American mathematicians to make pi equal to 3.

But did you know his name was Pi Man? He featured again in a comic story called “Pieman meets the Pi Man” where he became a mad supervillain and gained the name Pi Man

Did this also know Apu can supposedly recite pi to 40 thousand digits?! Wow! In the episode “Marge In Chains” he uses this talent to justify that his memory isn’t flawed. He said that the last digit was 1! Read pi news below to test this.

In my episode 1 post I left you with this joke which involves pi! I will leave you with it to maybe bug you – it will be explained in a future post – or maybe you already get it 🙂

Want to randomly start to memorise Pi and maybe get as good as Apu then click here
Are you going to learn pi?
– I would be interested if Apu is right saying that the last digit (I am guessing in the 40 thousand that he has learnt) is one?

So that rounds of the first slice of pi! Wait … Did I just spoil that there will be a bigger and better pi sequel post? Oops … See you next time tappers …
I am working on Item Overviews for most Superhero items so don’t fret as they will be hitting soon
