Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Pi Are Squared, I Scream Are Cylindrical-ed

Day Before Yesterday: Life caN someTimes be amaZingly wonderFULL: my container of I Scream had an eXtra 3/8 inch of altitude, Mmmmmm ... ........

Today: Thinking about it more than 24 hours later, , , , in all my eXcitement I maaaaay have got off in my fractions, it may "half" only been 3/16 of an inch of eXtra altitude, but hey, do the math!, baby, thats eXtra I Scream! ...or if you are tired don't do the math. I'll do the math for you. So the area of a circle is pi times radius times radius, and then you just multiply the area of the circle times the height to get volume, and since I am comfortably in bed I will guess the size of my I Scream container to be 8 inches across so the R=4, so R squared eguals (yes I used a g on purpose) 16, which is convenient since there is now a 16 in the numerator and denominator (top N bottom) of the fraction which cancel, so 3.1415926535 * 4 * 4 * 3 / 16 = 3 pi cubic inches = 9.4247779605 eXtra cubic inches of I Scream

[the answer to your questions are,

A) yes, I know pi out that far, and
B) I did the multiplication without a calculator or paper or pen, just start from the left and work progressively right altering the answer with your carry from the next step wise minor multiplication.]

(Actually my answer is wrong because I used a truncated form of pi instead of rounding because the next numbers after 6535 are 89, but I yam tired.) so it should be 9.4247779607, I confirmed that with a calculator. Sorry.
