Happy PI Day!

A Stunningly Simple Way To Explain Pi
by TeachThought Staff

Now let’s laugh at legislators thinking policy can overcome physics: “On Feb. 6, 1897, Indiana’s state representatives voted to declare 3.2 the legal value of pi. The bill wasn’t actually about legislating a rounded value of pi; it was even more ambitious than that. Bill 246 was a bold attempt to attack an ancient mathematical conundrum with the modern blunt force of legislative fiat.” Indiana’s State Legislature Once Tried To Legislate The Value of Pi via @forbes https://www.forbes.com/sites/kionasmith/2018/02/05/indianas-state-legislature-once-tried-to-legislate-the-value-of-pi/

It’s really no different from: “The state’s top health official said Wednesday he did not speak with Greg Abbott before the governor announced Tuesday he would end his mask order and “open Texas 100%,” a decision criticized by public health experts, city and county leaders and President Joe Biden.” 3 out of 4 Texas medical advisers say they were not consulted before Gov. Abbott lifted mask mandate https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2021/03/04/top-texas-health-officials-not-consulted-before-abbott-mask-decision/6919666002/ via @usatoday
