In the US we get to celebrate twice since we tell time predominantly with a 12 hour a.m. / p.m. clock. ;-)

Happy Pi day, you MDY-ers!

Kate Bush is my favourite female singer since long time.

I'm glad that she is remembered this very especial day.

Happy Pi day to you all!

Live Long and Prosper!

FWIW,

$\ln \left [ \frac{16\ln 878}{\ln \left ( 16\ln 878 \right )} \right ]=3.141 592 653 77$
$1000\left ( \sqrt{\frac{e}{\sqrt{5}}}-1 \right )-4\pi = 89.999 994 77$
$\frac{\sqrt{2}\left ( \pi ^{17}-80e^{\pi } \right )}{4}= 99 999 999.949$

RE: π
Someone at YouTube coments of this Kate Bush song wrote that she made many mistakes singing the Pi number.

I tried to follow her singing but I can't understand many numbers she sings.

Could someone native english could check this out? Just for curiosity?

I know she is extremily perfectionist, some albuns took 2 or 3 years to be completed, then I doubt she could have made a mistake like that.

TIA

Edit: was the 35s available to Kate in 2005? Just kidding...

There is also Liczba Pi (Number PI), a poem by Wislawa Szymborska (1996 Literature Nobel Prize Winner).

I learned from my mother (a Polish Brazilian) how to count in Polish from 1 to 5 only, so I was able to check only the very first digits :-)

Yes, there are many mistakes.

Now I am certain that she used a 35s.

Kate Bush does not make mistakes.

Neither does Katie. I haven't tried it yet, but I am quite sure Katie Wasserman's HP-32SII program gives only correct digits, even when run on the HP-35S :-)

P.S.: I like Wuthering Heights better. I had just learned English then (or at least I thought I had :-) and I had also read the book (1977 I think).
