Joan, "year/month/date" does sound better, at least for photos.
Finally found the longer version of Pi:
1 Million Digits of Pi
Grinning Cat, I didn't know "the European system of 14/3/2020" was different than the U.S.
I personally prefer, year/month/date, especially with my photos. This system keeps my pictures lined up in date order. Perhaps there is a way to line them up by using date/month/year but I do not know how to do it that way.
On a lighter note: Happy Pi Day (3/14)!
(I know, the European system of 14/3/2020 is far more sensible...)
And sometimes pie "r" square!
Would dead-set anti-drug conservatives smoke weed if they were then allowed to vote a second time?
In any case, thanks, Loren, for the laugh!
LOL, Loren. Interesting interpretation.
Maybe the "ELEV" number is actually those who are "elevated" (i.e. HIGH!, likely on the local weed) at the time of the census.Hey, it's as likely an explanation as any!
Someone remarked at FA that if the "elev." is in feet, the "pop." would have to be doubled to get feet as well!
"The dangers of spreadsheets":
(after DoctorDJ at Friendly Atheist)
And Joan, I don't remember where I found that cheesecake with the long expansion of pi. Turns out that among other places, it's in Wikimedia Commons' collection of Pi Day pies.
