Wikipedia: Pi

The number π (/paɪ/) is a mathematical constant. Originally defined as the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, it now has various equivalent definitions and appears in many formulas in all areas of mathematics and physics. It is approximately equal to 3.14159. It has been represented by the Greek letter “π” since the mid-18th century, though it is also sometimes spelled out as *“pi”*. It is also called *Archimedes’ constant*.

The gal at the next table has a tattoo of pi behind her left ear. Why would she do that? It’s irrational.

K: Would you get 3.14 as a tattoo?

P: Why would I want to get Pi as a tattoo?

K: Because I would?

P: Sounds like an irrational thing to do.
