Happy Pi Day!!

Recommended Posts

This is too good not to share (wish I wrote it and how sad is that)

Happy π(rates of Penzance) Day!


I am the very model of a non-repeating decimal,

I've information volumetric, tubular, and spherical,

I know the ancient Greeks and I know others quite historical

From Ptolomy to Fibonacc’, in order categorical


I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical,

I understand equations, both the simple and irrational,

About Pythagorean theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' sense,

With many cheerful facts about the half of a circumference.


I'm very good at integral and differential calculus;

You can do most anything with me and just a radius

In short, from matters circular to Riemann zeta functional

I am the very model of a non-repeating decimal,


I have a mythic history, Arch’medes’ and some Indians’;

I answer hard equations, I've a pretty taste for radians,

I quote in elegiacs all my digits oh so numerous,

In conics I can floor peculiarities voluminous;


I can tell undoubted ovals both from ampersands and hippopedes,

I know the spindle torus and the sis-Cissoid of Diocles!

Then I can find the surface area of a saddle or a hull facet,

And recite all the nums from my infernal series infinite.


Then I can calculate the shape of any curve that’s cruxiform,

And tell you ev'ry detail of Catenaries uniform:

In short, from matters circular to Riemann zeta functional

I am the very model of a non-repeating decimal.

— Mark Siddall, American Museum of Natural History
