    In one of Heinlein's future history timelines America gets overtaken by a period referred to later as The Crazy Years, in which people get pretty nutty and bizarre evangelical religions start overwhelming the political system.

    Point of this: one of the niftier little things he throws in is the main character reading a newspaper and tracking all of the "crazy years" stories he's seeing increase in frequency (the real crazy is still coming at this point, you see). One of the articles is an AP wire announcing that the Alabama Supreme Court officially ruled today that Pi is equal to exactly 3, under pressure from religious groups who deemed Pi's previous infinite nature to be a slight against God.

    I dunno why I'm bothering to mention it, I just always thought that was internal chuckle kind of funny.

    doesn't matter if you're in the military. 3.14159 occured 1 hour and 59 minutes into March 14th. That happened 12 hours before you posted.

    so pi is equal to exactly 3 like a triangle??? And is not infinite like religious groups believe as in maybe the holy trinity??? Oh phuck i think I might be getting confused.

    it's a funny notion (I value it as a joke), but in reality I don't think anyone who would rule on changing the value of pi could even understand what it is in the first place.
    Besides, "educated" religious folks generally subscribe to the idea of science and religion as nonoverlapping magisteria.

    I think it's very cute. Not ha ha funny, but definitely, "Hmm, funny." In particular though, I just want to see judicial overrulings of scientific principles become commonplace. With this Supreme Court bench we could do it.

    "Today in a surprising 6 to 3 vote, the US Supreme Court ruled that the Second Law Of Thermodynamics now states that queers can't kiss in public."

    I wrote Pi Day instead of the date on some primer mix tubes at work today, so I hope everyone is familiar with the idea.

    so if Pi is equal to 3, that means this post is judicially incorrect...

    right?

    No it wasn't. And cut it some slack even if it were--it's the only good thing Aronofsky's ever gonna make, it looks like.
