Pi through the ages

I’ve loved the irrational number set for most of my life.  There’s something magical about numbers that have no finite limit.  Pi is one of those.

I have two books on the topic of the curious ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.

But my favorite bit of Pi memorabilia is by far my shirt (currently out of stock).  If you know me, then you know my shirt.  It’s a classic bit of math nerd garb.  I’ve stubbornly held onto this t-shirt for 10+ years.  It’s had paint spilled on it (my wife lovingly resuscitated it).  It’s followed me from one home to the next, from bachelorhood into happily-wedded matrimony.  From pet owning to child rearing.

As its meandering random digits march through time, I’ve been happy to accompany it emblazoned on my body like a signpost.  Where to next, irrational number? 1

    Aw! My favorite Pi shirt event was Gussy’s birth, followed closely by the Glenwood Springs trip. You’ll be needing another shirt before long!
